Gonzaga Prediction AND Game Thread

Postby Hunter » Wed Nov 29, 2017 9:58 am

It's been several years since I started one of these but Boar implored me to start one.

Prediction (OT):

Creighton - 92
Gonzaga - 89

I see this game being wildly entertaining with a lot of transition buckets, three pointers and not a lot of defense. I think this will be Marcus Foster's 2017/2018 breakout game. Sure he is leading us in scoring but he hasn't really played at that elite level quite yet. Khyri will continue to display how he is quietly becoming one of the most impactful college players in these United States. For the prediction to come to fruition, we will also need a key contribution from one of the freshman.

Prove me right, Jays.

We lose, but it is an entertaining game and it's almost as good as a win because we perform so well in front of the committee's eyes.

Both teams average north of 91ppg...though their 2OT game with Florida inflated that a bit.

93-85 Jays, close until some FTs in the final minute

Speaking of present day Arena's
Gonzaga has the best record at home in the nation winning 92.27% of their games going into this year.
It is very tough to win at Gonzaga but it's possible.
I think Gonzaga will be favored by about 5 points
I hope I am wrong but I predict a close game win for Gonzaga, 91-89
Creighton is #24 at 82.57%
Nebraska is #209 at 65.15%
San Jose St is last, #351 at 43.35%
GO JAYS, pull the upset

We lose. Too tough to win there.

But good experience for March.
