    Default BZ Bulldog of the Game - Dixie State

    Tonight’s first test against Division I competition looked a little ragged at times, but the Zags still pulled out a 97-63 win. Chet Holmgren tied Gonzaga’s single game record with 7 blocks to go with a double-double. Strawther also had a double-double and was the game’s top scorer. Five Zags scored in double figures. Watson did a little bit of everything.

    According to ESPN, Holmgren is the first college player in 25 years to debut with at least 10 points, 10 rebounds, 5 assists and 5 blocks. And he didn't even play that many minutes from what I remember. Gets my vote

    Chet really stood out during moments of the game. Tying the blocks record in your first college basketball game with a double-double makes his POG status really stand out. I love the havoc he creates around the rim. I thought Nolan Hickman had a few nice sequences and Julian as well.

    If it wasn't for Chet it would've been much closer at half. Atrocious shooting from 3 and some sloppy play. This team will be exciting but will go through many growing pains.

    Holmgren blew up the stat sheet and I loved it but had to go with Strawther. He’s got a swagger going on.

    Boy this was hard. I wanted to vote for Julian but Chet did it all. Voted for Chet.

    Holmgren for sure, but Watson brought the intensity on defense tonight. He was flying around disrupting the Dixie kids at every turn.

    Holmgren I'm surprised it's not unanimous. That was some kind of game he played tonight.
    Strawther was a good 2nd best and had a really good 2nd half. Strawther can score. We know that and tonight he had 10 board.

    Unicorn could have potentially had a quadruple double... think that deserves top honors

    This was tough. We actually got into a bit of a funk...got down to 10-12 point lead, and Strawther came in and absolutely took OVER. Everything changed at THAT moment. Strawther finished as the leading scorer, and with a double double. I BARELY gave Strawther the edge for those reasons.

    That being said, I had no idea Chet apparently broke some records with his performance. Pretty incredible. Can absolutely make the (even stronger) case for Chet.

    Holmgren was impressive, as was Strawther. Sallis is going to be a star.

    However, I admire all the little things that Watson does that largely escape the stat sheet.

    Team was ragged at times, and 3-point shooting was poor the first half except for Bolton.
