    It will help a lot to have a guy who can hit that FT line jumper
    Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.

        Block shots and offensive rebound.

          USC. Gonzaga could play 2 teams that were cancelled earlier this season. USC and Baylor.

Timme's gonna have to stand his ground on D and try to force Mobley to shoot away from the basket. Wonder if we'll see Ballo and/or Gregg a bit in this one.
            I'm gonna say no, not unless one team is up 20 points with 1 minute left. Or Timme/Watson have major foul trouble.

              We'll see Strawther before we see Ballo or Gregg. He's been working his way into the rotation. Extended TV time outs have cut into the opportunities for Julian.

              ETA: However, Oumar had his best game against WVU, but that was 3 months ago.

                We do what we’ve done all season . Run and shoot well. Few et al will design a defense to manage the larger Mobley. Defense will be key throughout. Remember that they her have to defend us.A big chore.

                  They will be lured into playing at our pace, at their peril.

                    Three months and an extended layoff in February. Ballo regressed hard and he'll be lucky to get meaningful minutes next year. I watched him after he fumbled the pass in the paint and he looked dejected. I realize he's awfully young and may take longer to develop than we initially believed, but kicking your can on the court won't help your cause.
                    Back to USC. Do they use a lot of zone against us? Slow down the tempo and play grind it out half-court offense? Get physical with Timme down low and try to get into Jalen's head?
                    I wanted to face USC because they have this ability that Oregon can't replicate and I hate Oregon (but go Beavs!).

                      USC shoots like they did tonight, and we're going to have a rough time of it. Going to be tough scoring against that zone. They've made Kansas and Oregon look pathetic, and they're not. Nervous.

                        Zags will beat USC by double digits. I know many will worry about it but I’m telling you that they have times where they can’t score and it’ll kill them. They are big but they won’t be able to hang with our guards and The young Mobley isn’t physical which is more concerning to me.

                          That's basically what I said after Kansas, but now I'm not sure. They're playing by far their best ball of the year

                            Kenpom saying GU is #1 two point offense and USC #1 two point defense in the country.

                              Zags early 9 point favorite O/U 155.5
                              So many brackets, so little time.

                                Line sounds about right but I think it’ll be under without OT
