Best Players:
Tyler Smith, Jr., 6-7 215, SF
Tyler is as scrappy a defender and slasher as their is in College Basketball. He's definitely picked it up a notch on the offensive end scoring about 5 more points a game than a year before. Shooting about 55% from the field and 50% from three, the guys had a hot hand.

My Take:
This is going to be interesting, a chance to see what we can do on a truly neutral court against a team that we will have to play again on January 7th. This is going to be our toughest test of the season thus far and as long as the Zags establish the low post and go at Wayne Chism, i think we can pull this one out. Expect low scoring and a lot of turnovers...

Side Note: So Far, Gonzaga has the top RPI in the nation. Click Here to see.
