Gonzales looked pretty solid tonight verses the Broncos. With the exception of the egg they laid against Illinois, the Zags have risen to every challenge this season. This is the first team I can remember since 99 that has shown this type of resolve. We have had all sorts of heroes, with all of our key guys stepping up at some time or another to have big games or make key contributions when needed. This may be the team that finally has the kind of mindset to make a historic run this season. It showed tonight, as every time that SCU made a run,our kids handled it and held them at bay all nightnight. We really May be watching the team that gives our best chance to finally break that 13 year drought to get to an elite eight, or beyond.
With that said, I can' t help but wonder when we will see the defensive adjustment that seems so obvious to me that could really cause us problems. Send whoever is guarding our 3 person out on the floor to immediately double either post and make those 3 guys have to beat them. Seems like a simple adjustment but could be very effective. I' d even take my chances of Stockton if Few goes with his three guard line up. Hoping I' m wrong but I see where that could be what we see most of the game. Only counter I see is putting one of our bugs high and attacking but if they double team out of zone that will negate that. Does anyone see this as a weakness?
