Zags/Baylor Predictions?

Timme reminds me of ex-Zag Adam Morrison.

That bodes well for his NBA future.
After all, Morrison has more NBA championship rings than Jerry West & Oscar Robertson.
And tied with Wilt Chamberlain 🤔

Mark Few pulled Jalen Suggs from the game early in the first half with his second foul.

Suggs' second foul came three minutes into the game.

Should Few have pulled Suggs at a time when Gonzaga was trailing 9-0?

Suggs re-entered the game with the Zags trailing 26-10.

Suggs finished the game with three fouls.

Yahoo News, arguably the worst news outlet on the planet, with an earlier headline: "Zags suffer historic upset". Since when is a 4 1/2 point favorite losing historic? Didn't Gonzaga tip their hand on Saturday that they couldn't defend well against upper tier teams?

Gonzaga's lack of a rim defender cost them a perfect season.

Baylor seemed to get anything it wanted all night long.


Baylor Was Dialed In From Tip To Finish. Had The Pedal To The Medal For 40 Minutes. Full Throttle All Game.

Quickness, Athleticism, Ball Handling, Defending, Recovering, Speed, Strength, Power, Shooting, Substitution, Coaching.

Everybody Was Waiting For The 31-0 Zags To Go On a Run.

It Never Happened, Because of All The Above Mentioned.

Kispert's draft status definitely dropped during the tournament.

No doubt.

That WCC schedule came back to bite the Zags.

#FalseConfidence

The December 5 cancellation of the Baylor-Gonzaga game cost the Zags a chance to improve.

It would have been better to get punched in the face on December 5 rather than April 5.

If they couldn't win it this year, they never will. Maybe if they joined the PAC 12. But right now, the WCC competition just softens them up too much.

UNLV was in the Big West when they won it. I think Zags need better athletes, especially in the paint.

Little known fact. Vegas shared the regular season title in BW with NMST.

It's not over. Gonzaga is going to be a #1 seed again and probably pull off another great season if they land Chet Holmgren.

They should really join a powerhouse. Baylor definitely rocked them.

The Zags needed a Domantas Sabonis or Rui Hachimura this season.

For old-school Gonzaga supporters, even a Ronny Turiaf would have offered some resistance in the paint.

I should have laid Baylor -1.5 after the Bears raced out to that 9-0 lead.

When you're going bad, you tend to freeze/hesitate.

When you're going good, those bets are automatic.

The Zags Would Have Needed a Lew Alcindor From His UCLA Days, To Have Had a Chance Against Baylor in That Game.
