    Default GU VS BYU WCC Title Game

    I know LIZ does this but let's get it going!

    What are your predictions?

    Zags win 86 to 68.

    Pray for a competitive game. Last night was an unproductive snoozer. Either Tims or Suggs could have scored 50.

    Default GU vs BYU (Vegas edition) - Predictions/Thoughts/What you do hope to see

    Next up for the Zags is BYU. BYU struggled early and squeaked out an OT win over Pepperdine last night. BYU has played the Zags tough this year but not tough enough to this point. Will the Zags continue to dominate? VERY short window.

    What are you expecting to see tonight? Hoping to see? Thoughts? Predictions?

    The Zags are playing really good right now, and I expect another really great game from all of them. This is just a great team, and theyr're going to show it once again tonight. BYU hits a couple in the last two minutes to keep the score somewhat respectable. Zags could have won by 20.

    I'm hoping to see better 3 point shooting by Kispert. Last night I felt he was rushing his shots. I would also like to see fewer turnovers, especially by Suggs. On the positive side I am hoping to see the brilliant passing by the Zags. You just know there will be 3 or 4 mind blowing passes by this team. I'm hoping for Ayayi to be the player of the Tournament again this year. He could have another big game like he had last year in the Conference Tournament Finals. In many ways, imo he deserves it.

    Go Zags!

    Either BYU would have to get a whole lot better, or we’d have to get a whole lot worse. Don’t want either of those things.

    BYU did move the ball pretty well last night in the couple minutes I watched. But unless we miss a ton of layups I don’t see them defending us any better than they or any other team has to this point.

    Get the W. No injuries. No COVID.

    More’s the pity. The Zags have never been better, the WCC has never been worse.

    I predict big games from Kispert and Cook.
    BYU will try to get Timme in foul trouble. Expecting a close, hard fought high intensity game w Zags pulling away late.

    Not gonna lie, this one makes me nervous. Scrappy BYU will want this one badly. Do zags bring the passion and match intensity? Timme has to stay out of foul trouble.

    The first half of your sentence is true. The second half is factually false. The WCC is looking very good. 8 of 10 teams are in the Top 150.

    Would love to see some lockdown defense for 40 minutes tonight. SMC got a ton of easy looks last night and it appears the attitude, right now, is offense first - and second. As we know, March teams will look very different and it would be nice to see some intensity on the defensive end tonight.

    Zags jump out early and maintain a steady lead.

    This will be a close game. BYU will bring the energy. I think we pull away in a close game. Kispert 0-5 from 3 last night, he needs to knock down shots tonight.

    Harward = Kaufusi, a thug with limited skills that plays abusive....

    Lohner is a stud....

    Harms is 7' 3" and plays like it....

    Barcello hit and miss... same with George, Averette, the wild card...

    BYU is tough, not overly skilled but tough, rough and hungry....

    Zags, 87-75 in a slugfest.

    Go!! Zags!!!

    I expect that Gonzaga will win....but there is a chance that BYU could make 15-20 3's and upset them....but that would not necessarily be a bad thing.

    I do not like BYU.....they are the dirtiest team in the WCC....but given what Gonzaga will face in the Tournament from the Power 5 +1 that is also not necessarily a bad thing....

    I'm hoping to see a great game from Suggs - get him tuned up for the Big Dance.

    Kispert shooting 32% from 3 the last 5 games. 10/31. This number is only 32% because of the 6/10 from 3 on senior night against LMU. This would be a great time for Kispert to find consistency. He does other things well but we need the long ball to go in.

    Hoping for a win (of course) and praying that BYU’s confusing round ball with football yields no injuries. Last night was appalling. There is playing all-out with emotion and intensity . . . And then there is BYU.
