    Default GU vs Saint Mary's (Home edition) - Predictions/Thoughts/What you do hope to see

    Gaels dragged out every bloody possession last time around... The kept the Zags under 80, only team to that point that had done that. Pacific is the only other team that has done that. Does SMC stick to that playbook and try to limit the Zags time with the ball?

    What are you hoping to see on Thursday? Expecting to see? Thoughts? Predictions?

    ZAGS by 20+, say 85-63. SMC will ugly it up and try to slow it down as this is their ONLY potential path to victory. Expect a 2-hour trip to the Dentist, no offense to Dentists.

    Go ZAGS

    Haven't done many predictions this year (and the ones I've done haven't been so great) but I feel a hurtin' coming on, esp. with the game at home after a good rest following the USF beatdown

    Zags win 94-70. The Gaels may try to control tempo, but I don’t think they have enough talent to dictate anything against this Zags team. The Zags’ speed will be too much. I expect the Zags to put this game out of reach before halftime.

    I hope to see GU come out fired up and get off to another great start, only this time, with all of the players having a great game. Then, I hope to see the bench come in early and actually build upon the lead.

    Can the team fly down there, and turn this into another Q1 win?

    1. At home for the first time in 5 games.
    2. First time parents, players’-biggest-fans, have been in attendance for a home game this season.
    3. The moon will be waxing crescent, first after the lunar new year, heading to the snow full moon.

    Meh.

    I don’t know what impacts our score this year. But I predict a fast, leave it on the floor, no tomorrow’s kind of pace. I want this to be a unanimous, we can’t decide who the player of game is, because we pummel the Gaels by a sweet 30+ and all the guys show up.

    JMHO... Gael's pace of play is taking 90s out of the picture. Now, of course, because I said that, they will try to run with the Zags. I do think the Zags get out of the 70s though... barely

    TeamRankings.com is currently giving SMC an 18% chance to make the tournament -- 1% chance for the autobid, and 17% for at-large. They are going to need some wins, and they've got us, Pepperdine, USF, Pacific left.
