    Default GAME THREAD: SMC @ Zags - 2.18.2021

    A number of happenstances have converged and conspired against SMC resulting them bringing a 2-4 conference record into the Kennel tonight. A win against USF and a furious, ultimately futile, comeback against Pepperdine indicate that there is yet a heartbeat within the program but nothing really points to them being able to hang with an inspired and crisply executing GU team. Meanwhile, GU gets another opportunity to showcase its high-efficiency, NCAA-leading offense to an nation-wide ESPN audience during Prime Time. Mark Few has not allowed opportunities like this to escape this year. I look to see a locked in, well-executing GU squad storm out early in their first game ever with family in the Kennel this season. I hope they can keep the emotion in check and sustain it through out the whole game. If so, it will be lights out early for SMC.

    Tip: 9:00 PM Eastern, 6:00 PM Pacific

    Last game thread was at 7 pages by halftime, but petered out in the second half.

    It's 5:20 and I'm already praying this Iowa-Wisc. game doesn't go to overtime!

    Go Zags!

    They just called Gonzaga "the Harlem Globetrotters of college basketball" during an ESPN commercial break. Yikes! That sort of talk always makes me uneasy.

    BYU is pulling away from Pacific. Doesn't look like they will do double OT this time.

    Let’s get this out of the way early.

    1. This is a terrible start. The guys are playing horribly. What happened to the crisp passing? Way too much dribbling and hero ball. They’d be up 20 if they played like they did at the start of the season.

    2. Watson is doing nothing offensively. Get him out of there. Let Nembhard and Cook take his minutes.

    3. Ballo not playing is a bad sign. Is he unhappy? Why aren’t we seeing more of Strawther and Harris? Are they in the doghouse? We’re going to need them in March and April.

    Did I cover all the doom and gloom?

    the over dribbling vs. the perimeter pressure has been an issue vs. some opponents, not tonight, Zags going after SMC perimeter pressure by pulling Timme out so there's nobody in the paint. Zags shooting layups off the bounce.

    last game, Bennett's pressureperiemter d package seemed to rattle Zags, and Drew was in the paint all the time, the dribblers dribbled into trouble. Joel comes to mind. Few has adjusted
