Tuesday Open Thread: What's the goal of the final stretch?

New, 34 comments

The title might make this post sound overly simplistic but over the past few days I have been thinking about the final five games and how we should view them.  First and foremost, the goal is obviously to win each game and increase our momentum heading into March.  I don't even want to discuss the ramifications of a loss down the home stretch...so I won't. 

What I'm hoping for in this thread is to hear what you, our beloved community members at The Slipper Still Fits, will be hoping to see as Gonzaga ends the regular season.  There have obviously been plenty of stories in the 2009-10 season.  The emergence of Elias Harris, the consistent dominance of Matt Bouldin, the youth movement on the bench etc etc.  Each of these stories has been fun to follow and certainly has resulted in an outstanding season up to this point but there are still some looming questions marks.  It remains to be seen how Elias deals with added defensive pressure, we still don't know about Rob and Meech's consistency, and the bench is still pretty erratic from time to time.  With all this being said, the question on the table is: What do you hope to see in the final five games from this Gonzaga team and what players will you really be focusing on?
