    Never happen, even in a 25 point game.

    Personally, I’d like the Zags to break Norfolk State’s will by the first TV timeout. You know, a couple of threes from Corey, a couple of bunnies from Drew, Andrew and Jalen with a couple of transition buckets off steals, Joel with a couple of layups off back cuts...19-4 at the first time out.

    My gut tellin me Norfolk State is dangerous because of their experience playing zone D + Zags’ mediocre team 3pt % + long layoff for Zags = not that far fetched to predict a tight game.

    Hope I’m wrong. Hope ORU result gets Zags’ attention and they bring their A+ game.
    Someone recently posted GU's offensive stats vs zone compared to vs man-to-man defense. The stats vs zone were off-the-charts. GU destroys zone defenses.

    Using NET as a guide, Norfolk would rank between Santa Clara and San Diego, teams that play us at least twice every year. We just need to put the hammer down from the opening tip.

    Spartans have some sass......this from Blanchette’s article in the SR this AM

    “Fresh off their First Four victory over App Store (sic, LOL), Norfolk State guard Jalen Hawkins and coach Robert Jones were back on Friday to assay their chances against the bracket’s overall No. 1 seed, unbeaten Gonzaga.

    “We’re not looking past them,” Hawkins said.

    Oh, yes, he did.“

    Zags need to treat these guys like they are trying to take their dreams from them because they are. I remember sweating out that game against #16 Southern back in 2013. Mentally, I think that took a toll on the team that contributed to their loss vs Wichita St 2 days later.

    Sounds about right, 4 guys in for the last minute 15 seconds of a 30 pt lead. You meant total for the group right?

    Well any zone except Syracuse’s zone. You have to have length and height to have the most effective zone defense.

    I'd like to see Gregg and Ballo both get at least 5 minutes run in the first half. There's a high probability that we'll need meaningful minutes from one or both of them at some point in this tournament, more so than Harris or Strawther.
    I doubt that Norfolk will try and run with the Zags and try and keep it a low possession game. 84-48 Zags

    I’m going with 92-70 Zags win. Might be more adventurous than we like in the first half but the team will settle in and the weight of its skill will tell.

    Zoning a team...with tall guards....who can shoot it. Not usually a great outcome. Again, Norfolk plas very hard...and combine that with tight hoops...it could be interesting. Norfolk has never been on the court with a team that passes it and shoots it like GU....I like the Zags chances.

    I did see that game and I think it's the best thing that could've happened to the Zags.

    But I also think we're a far better team than OSU and I think Oral Roberts was not a 15 seed and I said that when the brackets came out (though I don't know much)
    Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.
