  • GU vs Alabama - Predictions/Thoughts/What you do hope to see

    Zags are facing a tough Crimson Tide team in Seattle. Zags are coming off a loss to Duke and tight win over Tarleton State. Bama has one loss, to Iona, and came back with wins over Drake and Miami.ill the Zags get all the cobwebs out and play their game or will the Tide roll and beat the Zags?

    What are you hoping to see on Saturday? Expecting to see? Thoughts? Predictions?

    Have at it boys and girls!

    GO ZAGS!

      I want to see some rested players punching Alabama in the mouth at the beginning of the game. Want to see limited turnovers, crisp passing, solid three point shooting, and solid defense for 40 minutes. Nembhard and Timme get back on track.

        If we see the intensity and lock in that we witnessed vs UCLA than I feel great.

          Bama could boat race us

          They have scored 90+ 3 times this season

          Fast, athletic, uptempo, transition team.

          Ranked Top 10 til losing to upstart Iona program under Rick Pitino

          They crushed their last 2 opponents, including Miami by 30.

          We continue to play sticky hero ball (only 9 assists last game), we will get run outta the gym.

          Not sure what team shows up?

          We seem deflated, careless, tired, & lackadaisical right now.

          Was it Vegas hangover or team dynamics? We shall see.

          Find a 2nd ball screen option outside only Nembhard. Rasir is opportunistic yet we never run plays for him. Dumb. Its precisely what Duke keyed on. Nembhard looks like he's still reminiscing the UCLA game. Play Sallis more. Play Timme less -- he's tired and weary legged. Utilize Hickman as a primary ballhandler not just a gimmick to get the ball across half court. Let Watson control ball on hi lo action. Run plays to get Bolton shots. Switch up defenses. Press more, it worked vs Texas, barely seen it since. Chet just launches random 3's yet could be worth running catch and shoot action for him. Find a leader, this team desperately needs one.

              Yes on a lot. No on the sallis more he simply does not understand roles and responsibilities on either side of ball yet

                Bama packs the paint against Timme to force a lot of outside shots, where the 3pt shooting woes continues to drag them down.

                  I think the Tarleton game was a natural letdown and shouldn't be viewed as the way the Zags will continue to play ball going forward. Coming off a tough loss to a tough team (who themselves lost tonight - where's the doom and gloom with them?), after a week of being the biggest thing in college basketball in the craziest city in the world, seeing your name and faces literally lighting up the Strip, playing in front of the largest crowd ever to witness a basketball game in the state of Nevada, of course the could be a letdown and possibly overlooking a perceived inferior opponent. I'm betting that Monday night was an aberration, and not the new normal. They'll have five days off, one week+ to get Vegas out of their thoughts, and the coaching staff will have them focused and ready to play. And they'll have a much better 3pt performance than last night.

                  Zags - 88
                  Alabama University - 80
                  My posts indicate that I don't seem to follow college basketball all that closely.

                            Hope to see a win in person! Heading to Seattle to connect with my mom and some siblings! Can’t wait!
                            The only hope we have for a better future is to come together and do everything we possibly can in order to achieve a sustainable existence. Everything else is folly of a broken foundation.

                              Our weaknesses have been exposed. Foul trouble and not enough three's made will hurt the Zags
