    Just realized Bilass is on the call, and they sat the lady sideline reporter down for Metcalf.

    Gonzaga is better than Duke. Don’t let that Purdue score fool you, zags missed a bunch of shots they usually make and the offense respected Purdue big too much. We don’t have that. They are the best team we will see OOC. Maybe all year- but Creighton and Uconn are right there. I’m assuming Kunk is out, it’s an extremely uphill battle.

    Our 3s need to fall and we need someone to step up who hasn’t yet this year.

    Kind of a weird arrangement where the men's and women's championship games are scattered in the Moda Center; the men's and women's 3rd place games are all scattered at the Veterans Memorial Coliseum (same building where X beat Florida on Thursday).

    I don’t know about all that. They have been absolutely smoked twice now. I don’t think their guards are as good as they have had in years past.

    UConn and creighton are extremely good, I think they are both better than the zags this year imo.

    Now with all that said, I expect the zags to beat x by ten plus. I think timme is going to have an absolute field day against our frontcourt and x’s d is mediocre at best right now.

    I hope this post ages terribly.

    Bart Trovik predicts a 5 point X loss and gives us a 31% chance to win.

    I'll take those odds. It will be an uphill battle for sure.

    Gonzaga is good but not as good as the last couple years. Guards aren't nearly as good as they have been and Holmgren covered a lot for Timme's defensive issues down low.

    They are not as good as the last couple years, thatís for sure. I may have over stated it, but mainly they are better than what they showed against Purdue- and much better offensively than Duke for sure. Tomorrow will be frustrating as Timme will destroy Freemantle/Anyone we put on him. Gonzaga will end up being a better win than either Duke or Indiana wouldíve, though.

    Send in Hunter and Miles to do nothing but double team Timme. Maybe something will happen.
