    What I hope to see: better 3 point shooting, make at least 7 of them and hoping for 8; fewer turnovers> not more than 13.
    I'd like to see Holmgren get 20 poingts and Bolton 17. Would like to see Nembhard break out of his slump. I would alos like to see Watson score 10 points. that would really be awesome.

    Go Zags!!!

    They got my money months ago. All they have to do is mail the tickets to my address as I requested.

    I hope to see Nolan Hickman have a breakout performance in his hometown and outshine fellow 5* PG frosh for Alabama, JD Davison:
    * Rated as a consensus five-star prospect by ESPN, Rivals and 247Sports and one of the highest-rated recruits to ever sign with the Alabama men's basketball program
    * Ranked by 247Sports.com as the No. 9 overall player in the nation and the No. 1 point guard
    * Averaging 24 mpg; 8pts; hair under 5 assists pg; 3 TO's pg
    * Zag hair

    Alabama looks like a perimeter oriented offensive team so hopefully Timme and Chet can stay out of foul trouble. They are a good defensive team.
    I am cautiously optimistic Zags come locked in and perform at a high level....maybe my biggest hope is we see nothing but positive body language from Zags on the court; no whining to refs and gesturing at teammates....Timme really disappointed me with his hands in the air gesture toward Strawther after a poor post entry pass that resulted in a TO the last game.

    I share your disdain for Ticketmaster, but hopefully you have your tickets or at least an indication they are on the way. I received an email at 1:00 pm west coast time, which told me my seat location. It had a link to Ticketmaster, which once followed, led me to my tickets (almost) as it simply said I could view and save my tickets after 5 pm.

    But I hope that it's not that close. I'd like to see a game that will help me get over the last two.

    TM is really difficult to work with due to their totally automated interactions and security checks that lead you into blind alleys. That said, I haven't seen physical tickets in years. Suggest you login to your TM account go to "my account" and then "my tickets" to see if they are there. You've probably already tried that. Good luck.

    So stoked for the return of the Battle In Seattle. Been to every one and this opponent matches the quality of the early years when we faced teams like Arizona, UConn, Tennessee, Mizzou and of course the legendary Oklahoma State game won by Adam Morrison on a buzzer beater. We are bringing 8 LOUD Zags fans to this "neutral" court game. Looks like a sellout and will be the first basketball game played at the new Climate Pledge Arena.

    As for the game, Alabama was a scary team last year while this year they have feasted on inferior competition so far including their stumble vs Iona. Saturday is the beginning of a big step up in competition for them as GU is the first of three consecutive games vs ranked opponents. I'm calling that Nembhard will have a big game vs a familiar SEC foe and lead GU to the win.

    Didn’t know this is the first hoops game in the new Kraken arena. Hope they have no issues w moisture/condensation on the court.

    A buddy of mine in college used to design then pay for a bulk # of tee shirts he would sell at football game tailgate for a nice profit. Wonder if there’s an entrepreneurial Zag student out there bringing a box of “Zags are Kraken” (or some such) tee shirts to sell. Does this call for a Zags/Kraken tee shirt idea thread?

    thanks for sympathy, they are only one of many growing outfits who do not have one salaried employee to solve problems that dont fit any of their links. i had not wanted to add another app, but finally broke to their will, and got the app and tickets that way. i know 3 people who have flip phones cuz they dont want smart phones. dont like the trend of places that wont take cash either. China is almost totally able to digitally follow all their citizens I have been told, for evaluation purposes.( and no i am not on the radical right). Go Zags, with two close games I expect us to play like a more experienced team than we have seen yet.

    Actually, Seattle University played at CPA last night. The floor had a bunch of old Sonics colors and designs. As to our game, it will be Roxy Bernstein and Sean Farnham on the call. These guys are rock solid, hope ESPN gives us more of them.

    Yes… pretty sure anyone on the pre season Jerry West award list should be able to make
    Perimeter shots… Hunter will be a great player at GU, but still figuring out his role, and he’s
    clearly a work in progress. Sure do like his natural gifts though…

    Bingo. My thoughts exactly. And I'll LOVE watching him progress.

    Oh .... 82-76 Zags.

    I am super pumped to watch the game tomorrow at Climate Pledge. One thing that has changed at the arena in the past few weeks is that you can only order two beers per transaction at the payment kiosk. Thought that was interesting.

    I am going to predict the Zags win by 14. 89-75.
