    Default BZ Bulldog of the Game - UCLA

    This was a game that this Zags team needed. UCLA clawed, scratched and fought for forty minutes and the Zags fought harder and responded with tremendous poise.

    Chet Holmgren seemed to disrupt the UCLA offense all night long. Drew Timme fought through a ton of contact to score, rebound, and run the offense. Andrew Nembhard orchestrated an efficient response to UCLA’s defensive pressure. Rasir Bolton made big plays early in the game while the Zags built the early lead. Strawther grabbed nine critical rebounds. The bench played well and provided a critical relief for the Gonzaga foul trouble.

    Who is tonight’s BZ Bulldog of the Game?

    Andrew broke UCLA tonight. Fantastic play. So fun to watch.

    What a game. Andrew Nembhard was nails in all facets tonight, from the way he dictated the pace, timely shots and rebounds. He gets my vote, but Chet came within a whisker of winning POG.

    Nembhard was transcendent though.

    I'm going Chet just with the all around game that made everything easier for Gonzaga. I know you could say the same for Nembhard

    I picked Nembhard over Holmgren.

    Vitale would have been a good choice too.

    Nemby, Nemby, Nemby.................

    He beat Tyger like a rented mule, all night. Way too fast, way too skilled.

    WOW, he was great tonight. Great team defense, too.

    Go ZAGS

    If Andrew was transcendant, how do we describe Chet? Reading his body language, he's very pleased with his choice to matriculate to Gonzaga. BTW, I voted for Andrew, it was not an easy decision.

    Nembhard thoroughly outplayed Juzang, the preseason All-American. His defense was excellent, but his control of the offense, despite everything UCLA did to ugly up this game, was the difference in this one.

    Holmgren. His D snd size were a game changer. Nemby was amazing too. Strawther and Timme with the honorable mention.

    POG? Nemhard. Nails.

    Anti-POG? The surfer looking ref who wasn’t aware his whistle could be used against UCLA.

    Nembhard was the glue tonight and gets my vote. There was a stretch he had a couple steals and it just seemed to turn the tide permanently.

    Overall, the guys had some major hits tonight. They showed their toughness and composure. Good officiating to kept things in check.

    Bonus: Mr Vitale gets an Honorary Zag of the Game vote from me. Nothing is more excruciating then chemo. He showed amazing toughness to do a round and announce a full game. Keep up the good fight!

    I was surprised that it is so overwhelmingly Nembhard (who had an excellent game). The Zag defense was the star of this game, in my opinion, and Chet was the lead actor.

    But man, Nembhard was nails.

    At about the 12 minute mark of the second half the Zags had 8 fouls called against them to UCLA’s 0 (ZERO)

    I was texting everyone I could think of, wondering why this wasn’t ever mentioned in the broadcast.

    Despite all that, the Zags kept their composure, and the lead never dropped below 16.

    Refs aren’t there to slow the bleeding (that’s incumbent on the players), but it seems like they take on that role in blowouts way to often.

    I thought that the game had to have been whittled down to close to 10 points a few times (after fouls, empty possessions, made UCLA buckets) and each time I looked at the score the lead was still 20

    Easily Nembhard. Truly one of the best games I’ve ever seen from any GU guard. Completely controlled the ball game.

    Did you hear the cheer that erupted in the stands when UCLA were charged with their first foul of the 2nd half?
