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

    Next up... short window here... the Portland Pilots come into Spokane. Pilots are coming in off a win over Pacific. Portland is 2-3 over their last 5. Do the Pilots guide their way to a road upset or do the Zags throw that idea off course?

    What are you hoping to see tomorrow night? What are you expecting to see? Thoughts? Predictions?

      OK... the trend seems to be the Zags working on flexing their defensive muscle in these games. It almost seemed like they alternated between trying to shot clock LMU and trapping and going for steals.

      Based on that

        Beatdown coming................

        Kids have tacos by midway through the 2nd half. Joe Few extends his team leading rebounds per 40 minutes stat.

        90-55, could be 120-50.

        Go ZAGS

                    Pilots fan here. If the Pilots keep it competitive at halftime, I'll be satisfied. They surprisingly were competitive for the first half against BYU at Marriott Center enough that BYU's radio guy had words of praise for our team despite the loss. I jokingly wish it was us instead of SCU that beat them, but anyway given how crazy that environment is, I feel the Kennel won't phase them.

                    Also I know Holmgren has been the freshman talk of the conference, but don't sleep on Chika Nduka. Among WCC freshmen in league games, he trails only Holmgren and BYU's Traore in scoring and rebounds. Which might not be saying much overall skill-wise, but some of us at Pilot Nation feel for his efforts and contributions to the team he's really flown under the radar (and may have been respectfully snubbed of a few WCC freshman of the week honors).

                      I underestimated LMU's defense and physicality. I won't make that same mistake with Portland.

                      My posts indicate that I don't seem to follow college basketball all that closely.

                          Heister and Foxy on the call, D-Train is working another game. I don't expect much out of Portland, they are usually one of the worst teams in the WCC.
