"Yeah, no, it feels like he's peaking. And that's not like, it's not a pejorative in this circumstance, although I understand that it must feel that way at times because we just haven't had that guy Tim. Not like this, like the whole, I want to be the face of college basketball. Like that guy does not want to really exist anymore because of the way that the NBA has lured and the G league and all of the overtime leagues, all of these new upstart kind of startup deals have been taking talent away from the game. They have. And we talk about his deal with the casino being the NCAA's worst nightmare. Well, he's really on the court. He's their dream, right? I mean, he is someone that people can recognize, right? That's the problem with college basketball is the recognition factor. We know how good Chet holmgren is, but we also know that we're not going to see him in a Gonzaga uniform next year. You know, during from Memphis, Ben Carroll from duke, I mean, we can appreciate them in the moment, but there's no carryover. That's smart on their part. Trust me, they should not come back to school. But this guy is for college basketball. He's a dream. He's someone that you can either love, you can hate, but you know he's gonna be there. He's there for three years and you develop sort of this weird sporting fan relationship with a guy that way. That is becoming very, very rare in college basketball. It's a version of college basketball that I love and the question after that is like, what happens when he leaves? Tim, because drew Timmy, we don't know if he's going to declare for the NBA draft after this season. We don't know if he's going to return to Gonzaga yet. But from a personality standpoint, yeah, I'm confident in drew Timmy being a hit in the league. But what do you think his game on the court's going to be like as a pro? Well, he has deficiencies. And I think that they're mostly foot speed. He has some questions about whether he can be an on ball defender against quicker, tall guys in the NBA. The other issue is his outside shooting, which to be fair, he just hasn't had to use very much when he does, he's not terrible. He's a decent shooter. And you know, he acknowledges again the king of self awareness. He acknowledges that these are things that the NBA teams have questions about. And he says that he has gone out of his way to work on these things as a way of showing these teams that he is willing to work on the things that as he puts it, I suck at. Coming out of high school, people so I want to be a good college player. I think people overlook production and just the consistency. Now I get it. I don't have the biggest wingspan or I can't touch the top corner of the backboard, you know? I'm probably not the sexiest combine guy around, but I'm a big team guy. Obviously, I'm not going to have the same role here as I would in the league if I'm fortunate enough to play there. You know, I take it from German O'Neil who obviously has a bias because he's one of his agents and he also was his coach in AAU in high school. Former NBA center Jermaine O'Neal, yeah. He has seen drew Timmy dominate guys who are in the NBA right now. And he says without reservation, drew Timmy is a first round draft pick. He's gonna be a good NBA player. And you know, I mean, I'd like to believe that. I don't know that I believe that, but I think it would be next to him coming back next year, which I think would be the most hilarious thing in college sports in the last probably 20 years. I think that him going in and having a really solid NBA career and exceeding expectations would be would be kind of fun to watch. I'd like to see that personality and how it flies at that level. Yeah, a big part of me admittedly does want your Timmy to just become the van wilder of Spokane. Just like never leave. And on that note, I mean, he's not done yet, right? I mean, Gonzaga's gonna play number four Arkansas on Thursday night if they win that game. They're gonna play the winner of Texas tech and duke in the elite 8 and from there they'll probably have to get through UCLA or Carolina to get to the championship game. And on the other side of the bracket, you have Arizona and Kansas, their fellow number one seeds. Like this road is tough, Tim, like this is a really hard path to win that first ever national title. So what would it mean to drew Timmy to lead Gonzaga to it? Well, I think first off it would be validation, right? It'd be validation for him and coming back. It would be sort of a sign that his trust in Mark few and this program was warranted. I think it would also probably improve his draft stock. If he does what he did against Memphis and continues to will this team to a national championship, they're going to have to take notice. They're going to have to see that there's something about this guy that is, you know, I hate to use the word intangible because he does a lot of tangible things, but there's just a part of him that is more than what you see. You know, on a side note, I just want to see him saddle up to his perhaps last game, you know? A couple seats from the bench an hour and a half before the game and start talking about the weather and see how well it goes over. Yeah, Tim, I don't know if coach K is gonna stroke drew Timmy's mustache. I don't think he's either. I don't think he's gonna have a conversation about coffee either, but we'll see. Tim Kieran, as always, thanks for joining us. Thank you, Pablo. It's fun. I'm Pablo Torre..

"He got this place, but he competed every single time. Like, he played 9 minutes in that first half. He competed or I can't remember. It might have been 11. It was either 9 or 11. He contested every single shot. His ability and drop coverage to just be in the right position all the time was absolutely elite. He was rotationally aware the entire time. If you look at the numbers in terms of how Gonzaga's defense succeeded or failed, when chat holmgren was on the court. Have I shown you these numbers yet? Have you seen them? I don't know if you had or you tweeted. I think I saw something similar, but I don't know if you showed it to me directly. So chat holmgren played 52 possessions in that game because he played most of the second half. And missed, I think it was like 17 possessions in that game. And in the 50 or no, it was 51 possessions. In the 51 possessions, he played in that game. Memphis scored 52 points. It was like one O two points per possession. How many points do you think Memphis scored in the 17 possessions he was off the court? So I don't say double, but 1.75? Yeah, it was a 1.52 point per possession Mark. They scored 26 points in 17 sessions when shot homegrown was off the court. And you could see why. They just pummeled Gonzaga onto the interior. As soon as soon as they pulled them too, as soon as they pulled it, which is a good coaching move by penny Hardaway too. You could see the difference immediately. I thought Chet holmgren was outstanding defensively in that game. Wasn't just good, wasn't just okay. He was outstanding. His defense in that game, it's not the biggest reason Gonzaga won that game. The biggest reason Gonzaga won that game. Number one for me is Andrew nem hard..

"Of course comes with highs and lows, right? Everyone now all of a sudden he's like, oh, who's this kid? Like 9 months ago, nobody knew who I was 'cause I thought I was just like this. Tall, skinny, white kid who couldn't really hoop is just there because it's all. But now people know who I am. People know what I can do. I try not to pay too much attention to it. Just kind of focus on myself and just kind of stay. You mentioned a minute ago that everything his parents did with his development was deliberate. How did they handle this overnight fame that came his way after that viral video and as he became considered one of, if not the top prospect in the country? Yeah, his parents are very level headed. Even to this day, like his mother, he does his laundry. He's expected to clean up after himself. His mother is a very active. She's very active in social justice. She's worked for not for profits her whole life. He grew up at a dinner table. We're having conversations about things that are going on in the real world. We're very common. It wasn't like we're going to just sit here and talk about sports. We're going to talk about things that are happening in the world, including, you know, Black Lives Matter. As a young kid in high school, he was at a protest. And when you're 7 foot one, you can't hide like people find you. So he knew he was going to be seen, and he was fine with that, which is wonderful. And we should all feel great about that. But look, there's a lot of kids who would be like, I want to be there, but I'm afraid to be there because of the backlash or the inevitable questions. But thanks to his parents, he was really raised to believe that basketball is what you're good at, and it's a great thing, but it's not going to define who you are. And in the conversation or conversations that you've had with Chet himself, what other impressions did you have of him overall? His personality and especially how he's been handling all the scrutiny that has come his way. Yeah, I mean, it was funny when I went out there. I had a hard time. I'll be honest pinning him down for an interview. He was just reticent to do interviews at the time. He had just gotten to Gonzaga really and I was probably the first national reporter that was there. And he was wary. I think understandably, he's come of age as a great player as a really unique player at the exact same time that NIL is coming out and players are getting paid and we're having more kind of expectations because of that place on him. And I think he was very aware that he's going to get a lot of attention and didn't necessarily love it. I don't know, there's no formula. You know, I don't pay too much attention to people I don't know. Okay. But once he kind of got to talking to you, he was really anxious to talk more about you. Can you come into this right yourself? Our whole team is a bunch of really cool guys. I don't think there's anyone on the team that has a problem with anyone really. Yeah. Yeah, we're all super cool with each other. Yeah. For sure. Yeah. It's easy. Yeah, I just think he's like a normal kid. That's really what I took away. I think sometimes we forget that just because you're an extraordinary basketball player at 19 doesn't make you this eloquent orator. Gonzaga head coach Mark few is definitely not a one and done kind of coach, at least in general. You know, he likes to bring in and develop players who are going to stick around for a while. So why do you think he went after Chet homegrown the way he did? Considering he's almost certainly out of there after one season. Yeah, I mean, I think he will tell you having grown up in Philadelphia and covered Jay Wright for a lot. I consider Mark few and Jay Wright's approach very similar to how they recruit players. They want players who are whether you're here for one year or four years, you're very grounded in being present. You don't have one foot out the door. You're not worried about what's next. You're worried about what's in front of you. And so Gonzaga did their due diligence as much on Chet as Chet did on Gonzaga. It's really interesting. I think people are like, wow, he chose Gonzaga, but there was a reciprocity there. They chose him too. I mean, they would not have taken him if they didn't feel like he would fit the sort of team chemistry that they have worked so hard to build. I think they felt more secure having gone through it with Jalen suggs coming from the same high school program. Knowing the same sort of people and the dynamic of the high school program, they knew what Chet was coming from. So I think it wasn't even a risk. It was a definite calculated decision though. They know he's not going to stick around, but is he going to be present while he's here? And all indications are, he 3000% is. And you know how in your view has Chet holmgren done so far this season, especially relative to the expectations that you had for him coming in as he's shown the kind of toughness and strength that I think a lot of people assumed he didn't have. Yeah, I mean, look, it's funny, if you look at his numbers, I mean, people would say, well, he's averaging 14 points and 9.6 rebounds and two assists per game. Okay, those are great numbers. Don't miss it, but it's not like he's averaging 30 points a game. But he's playing within the system of a team that is incredibly talented and has a lot of options, but he is very dominant. If you actually watch Gonzaga play defensively, teams stop going inside because of his presence. They get blocked a few times, and they don't go in there anymore. You know what I mean? He gives them an inside presence that they didn't have last year. These averaging, you know, regular double doubles the last few games. He's blocking shots. And if you watch him play, you know, you'll see these spurts of a game where he'll go down and drain a three, run back, block a shot, come down, dunk.

"For the past few months, one of the most unusual NBA prospects we've seen in a while has been quietly dominating opponents up in Spokane. The whole grid with the left hand and a foul. I mean, that was such a smart, petty move by chat Homer. It's overused. The phrase unicorn, but this is a true unicorn. You don't see them all that often, but Chet Hong grenade is exactly that and he's the best 19 year old songwriter. Today, the athletics Dana O'Neill on Gonzaga's 7 foot one inch, a 195 pounds, human walking stick, chat holmgren. His truly unusual skill set and how he's proven time and time again that he's not, in fact, too skinny to Hank. Plus, will homegrown be the number one pick in this year's NBA draft. From wondering in the athletic, I'm under skeleton. It's Friday, February 25th, and this is the lead. Deen O'Neill, welcome back to the show. Thank you for having me. Appreciate it. So Dana, you spent some time with the Gonzaga bulldogs back in the late fall just as the season was about to begin. And you watch the team in action. First, can you describe what it's like to see at homegrown and his very unusual frame up close in person? Yeah, it's funny, well I am the mother of a very tall skinny boy who was 17 years old and he jokingly refers to Chet holmgren as a spirit animal because Chet is just long. Everything about him is long and lean. His arms are just, they dangle. Everything about him is long. I remember staring at his hands, thinking, well, they look long to me, but maybe I'm just so then I glanced over at his teammate drew Timmy to say, oh yeah, his hands are, in fact, exceptionally long. And he's skinny. I mean, I remember thinking because I was out there at Halloween time that he looks like one of the skeletons hanging like a skeleton with their limbs attacked by grommets that people had decorating their houses because that's just how he looked and so you look at him and you think, okay, he's just a tall skinny college kid that's gonna get his rear end handed to him, frankly. Well, he's often referred to as a unicorn, you know, a 7 footer with skills that someone his size should definitely not have. What stands out to you about his game? I think a lot of things, I think the thing that people most jump to when you see a guy who's 7 foot who can handle the ball, right? I mean, he's not certainly not a point guard, but he's very comfortable bringing the ball up the court. He's got a real sense of smart passage. Jimmy down low, it's easy from there. So ten hunger gets the rebound and then gets the assist at the other end of the floor. I mean, it's just. His imprints is all over the game. He's much more comfortable facing the basket, frankly, than, you know, some big guys aren't. He's also a good three point shooter. I mean, he is not afraid to take a three. He makes three. Three and perfect from the outside for the freshman 7 footer. He is just growing up. Before our eyes and once again. But I think the other thing that really struck me, they told me that in October when I was out there and I had since watched his games enough to know that it's true, he is not a pushover. I think we tend to think of somebody that skinny that someone is just going to come in and just dominate him. And that does not happen. Z dick went right in homegrown who just stuffed him. You can see Z dick knows I've got to get to homegrown's chest, but for most guys that works. It's a different deal. Well, Chet holmgren has faced his fair share of doubters during his very young career. Mostly because of that bill that we've talked about. Can you tell us a little about his development as a player and how he's been able to sort of prove his doubters wrong along the way? Like, what did his journey before Gonzaga look like? Well, you know, first of all, he's really lucky. His father was a basketball player. And his father is sort of like four, really. He's like, the filled out grown-up version of Chet, who's like, you know, found food and beer, I guess or what have you. But so his dad came up as a tall skinny guy who understood the challenges of working with a body like that. When Chet was in the 8th grade, he was kind of having some knee issues and stuff like that. You were moving at 6 three, but now you're moving at 6 9 and it's completely different. So my knees hurt really bad. I'd have grown pains in my legs. I got shin splints a lot. I don't really. And his father said, no Mas, you're not playing. We're shutting you down for a little bit because his father had knee issues. His whole life that really kind of stopped his progress cold because his legs, his knees could not keep up with his growth. And his father did not want that to happen to chess. In high school at minnehaha academy in Minneapolis, Jalen suggs was on the team. You know, last year's star at Gonzaga. My first made ten third grade. When you walked in a practice with his long khaki shorts, his college teach short and his little busted kicks. I showed up for the first time together. They played with Paige Becker's and their driveway. Growing up, I used to say, they're just so tickets for that. Could you imagine like Paige Becker's and Jalen suggs and Chet holmgren and I pick up game. But you know they look out for each other and Jalen really looked out for Chet. He looked like a big thing a string tease, you know, just looking goofy out there and kind of took him under my wing. I was like my little brother. And now he's like my little big brother because he's 7 feet. Hey. So Chet was sort of, you know, the sidekick, if you will, and that was great for him. So there wasn't all of this attention all the time on him. And suggs his father was his coach on the side. And he was instrumental in developing him as well, making sure everything was deliberate. They were very careful with him. They didn't want him to have too much. They wanted him to grow naturally. They wanted him to enjoy sort of a regular progression as a high school kid despite the fact that he had sort of these otherworldly gifts and he really didn't come along until really late in his career. Well, I know the moment that he came on to many people's radar happened at high school prospects camp put on by Steph Curry for anyone who hasn't seen that video Dana. Can you explain what happened there? Right, so he was at Steph's camp and Steph is famous for his crossover move and all of that. So basically, Chet holmgren, Steph Curry Steph Curry, which is one thing to do when you're any high school kid, but you do it when you're that size. It just doesn't fit. And he kind of crosses him over in scores. And of course, everyone goes bananas and this being the world of the Internet, it gets picked up and gets tons and tons of views. So all of a sudden, he's sort of like this Internet sensation, which.

"gonzaga " Discussed on Courtside with Seth Greenberg

"Seth Greenberg. On campus I'm Seth Greenberg, joined by Jay billis and lafonta Ellis. And we are on Las Vegas to roll in basically the confines of our own separate rooms. Probably make sense. And feast week. Coming to an end, but as we come to an end the 5th week, we've got a really special game and I know Jay, you're on the call and you have a chance to watch duke and watch Gonzaga practice. Just what's your first take on that game, because that game to me has all the makings of an instant classic and maybe even a final four national championship game. It is basketball royalty playing against one another and two teams. I mean, the last time I can remember them playing was in the Maui invitational with Zion Williamson RJ Barrett, Rui Hashimoto, all those guys and Gonzaga won the game. It was an unbelievable heavyweight fight. And I think this game will be similar that, you know, I think Gonzaga is one of the best offensive basketball teams that I can recall in the game. With all of their cutting or vertical cuts, you know, they'll late cut into things and the different sets they run and they have 5 guys that can legitimately dribble pass and shoot. And you know, people talk about multi positional, but they really are. And to be able to take like a 7 foot two guy chat homegirl who's a freshman, and they can space him out in the corner, run action and a big guy can't protect the basket because he's worried about a three. I mean, it's remarkable. And then I think duke is legit. I think it's got the chance to be a great game. But you know, after I watch Gonzaga, if you're all watch kids, I can take apart UCLA, you kind of feel one as the favorite and I think it's Gonzaga. What are your first thoughts? Yeah, my first thoughts are similar. They're incredible the way they run offense. I mean, the way you Gonzaga pushes that basketball and misses N makes tremendous pressure on your transition defense. And then once you do get set, their ability to space the floor, they can go 5 hours and before round one makes an incredibly hard to defend them. And as I watch duke, if they try to deny passing lanes and get really up and in the basketball, I think they it will expose them to a degree because to Jay's point, all 5 guys can put it on the floor and get to the middle that can put it on the floor and get to the middle and be able to create place for others. And I'm intrigued by the matchup with Paolo Ben Caro and drew Timmy. And I think it's going to be important early, especially for the young freshmen to not get himself in file trouble, but really both from the post. And when he catches it out on the floor, trying to get drew Timmy and some filed trouble. And if he can do that, it puts duke in a really good position. Yeah, I think Timmy's gonna end up getting matched up with Mark Williams early on in the game, at least. I don't know, you know, I think if smaller, I think, I think we're going to see that match up. But you know, to me, you know, you made a point about pressure. And duke seems to be back to old school duke. An old school duke was up into the bald and iron ball reversal up the line that I entry passes and the spacing of Gonzaga is special. Their cutting is more than special. Jay, you mentioned they got four gamers and playmakers all over the floor, which kind of puts a lot of pressure on that. Their ability to play on the ball or off the ball. And I've been fascinated with Julian's strawberry because he's like cork kissberg one. Yeah. Big time three point shooter, very good cutter rebounds. His position straight line, more of a straight line driver, I've been really pressed with him and I've been blown away by the poise, the patient's, the manner in which Andrew net heart is carrying himself. He said, not a good leader is a great leader. He never gets sped up. He plays it his own pace. He advanced passes the ball up when the opportunities there. You go underneath the ball screen. He's going to knock down a three. He moves to the open spot when he feeds the post. I don't think that pressure can bother this Gonzaga Gonzaga team. What your guys thought on that, Jay? I think that's the whole key to the game is due because I agree with you. I think duke is trying to pressure more. They're trying to play out in passing lanes more, which they haven't been doing as much in the last several years. So it's going to be pressure at every spot. And so the big question is going to be can do push Gonzaga a little bit further out on the floor. You know, maybe make nem heart turn his back a little bit. In initiating and then extend the catch if you can extend every catch that might be able to disrupt some of the timing and cutting actions, take away some vision. That's easy to say. Everybody says they want to do that. And that was my biggest question. Like I was asking all the, you know, all the Gonzaga guys, 'cause I haven't seen it. I haven't seen anybody speed up and or never yet..

"gonzaga " Discussed on CBS Sports Eye On College Basketball Podcast

"So if Gonzaga stump was a little bit with its freshman and it gets picked off once or twice the non con I think it's overall quad one numbers are going to suffer at the end of the season. And that's why or at least that's the avenue I would say, I don't think it's gonna happen, but you asked, that's my answer. That's how I think we get to that point. I'm not that concerned about the youth. Although I acknowledge it could be a factor early. Like, you know, they play Texas very early. Tech's got a bunch of old dudes. And Gonzaga's probably gonna start three freshmen. Now three of the top 6 are probably going to be non freshman are definitely going to be non freshman. And that is a recipe that has worked before. You know, top 6, three freshmen, three 9 freshmen, Kentucky won a title in 2012, but that formula duke want to try to win 2015 with that formula. I'm not that concerned about it, although I acknowledge it could show up. And if they lose to Texas, early, that might be the reason. Like Texas came in with a bunch of experienced guys who were 21, 22, 23 years old and Gonzaga just couldn't match them physically. I don't really have any concerns about this team. I think they're going to be great. That's why I picked on the winter national championship. But it forced to try to identify a reason why they might not live up to expectations. It is true that they got overwhelmed athletically by Baylor in the title game. Are they still relatively speaking in an unathletic college basketball team? You know, they lose from their starting lineup. Jalen sucks, Cory kiss for Joey. They presumably ad Nolan hickman hunter sallis kit Hong Kong. Hickman is my understanding is an above average athlete. Salus my understanding is a solid athlete, but something short of an elite athlete. And then Jen holmgren is incredibly unique gifted talented intriguing special prospect. I'm not sure I've ever heard anybody describe him as athletic. So you could be very unathletic in the front court with Timmy and holmgren. And then let's just say average athletically in the backcourt with nimh hard hickman Salas. Is that something that still exposes you in a certain type of matchup, whether it's in the elite 8 final four or on that Monday night again. Perhaps, because that was a real factor in the 2021 national championship game. They just could not deal with Baylor's athleticism. Now, Baylor was uniquely athletic. And obviously great basketball team. And so it might take that combination to put Gonzaga in a bad spot. You can't just be athletic and average. That ain't gonna do it. And you can't just be really. You've got to be really good and you probably really athletic. And again, just theoretically, I could see that maybe causing a problem for Gonzaga. And the problem with that causing a problem for you in that tournament is that as you know, it's single elimination. And it's over. You know, you only get 40 minutes. And it could all come crashing down and Gonzaga has reached a point. This is not fair. But the zacks have reached a point as a program where it's not national championship or bus that's not any way anybody should look at it. But every year they don't want a national championship when they on paper have a team good enough to do it is another year where people will remind you over and over again. It doesn't matter how many games they won. It doesn't matter how many good teams they beat. They still couldn't win the national championship. Gonzaga has had only team of the nation that can boast this. 5 consecutive seasons of at least 31 wins. In fact, 7 of its past 9 seasons involve at least 31 victories for the bulldogs. And the two that don't qualify were a 29 win season and a 28 win season and one of those included a trip to the sweet 16. So yeah, the way these things go, it's stupid. And I don't even think this is, I think this is just a vocal minority that I've mostly just shut out because this come on when you're constantly really, really, really good, and then you don't win a championship. No matter the sport. No matter team or individual too, you'll get this occasionally Phil Mickelson dealt with this until he finally won a major. But when you're always around, you're in the discussion, but be a team individual. But you don't win the thing, then that just becomes something that sticks to you. And now it is Gonzaga. It is clearly number one with a bullet Gonzaga. This applies to. And because Gonzaga is in the WCC and not a member of the PAC 12 or the mountain west or anything else, it just makes them that much easier of a target. But I don't think they're conference. I don't think Gonzaga's conference holds his back from winning the national championship. It's made to national championship games since 2017 and it could well make another one in 2022 to your point about the athleticism. It will get tested and we will have results on this. We'll be discussing this after the first weekend of the season. Texas is filled with ridiculous athletes. UCLA, plenty, athletic, and we can't wait to see that rematch there in Vegas. Then the three days after UCLA, they got to play a duke team that will have no shortage of good athletes on it. And then they get Alabama on a Saturday, the first Saturday in December. So the first four legitimate non conference opponents Gonzaga faces a will test them and at the very least can attest to have it having at least as much athleticism. That's not the only thing, but I'm glad you brought that up, because it wasn't me. When you see the way Gonzaga lost how it lost with Bailey, Bailey was a special team. Remember, Baylor went into last season pre season top three. And until Baylor had its paws, it was Gonzaga Baylor who's the better team than Baylor had to sit for like two and a half weeks. And Gonzaga never lost a game and so Gonzaga separated itself until we got into the elite 8, the sweet 16, and then people were like, okay, is this really a thing now where we might have another team or two that's on Gonzaga's level? And then once Baylor one, it was, oh, of course, here we are. But Gonzaga only lost once last season and to play plenty of athletic teams. I'll remind everyone of that. It lost the final game. And yes, it got rolled, Scott drew and the bears put on an impressive, really one of the more impressive title game showings we've seen in the past ten or 15 years. But I don't know if this is going to be something that ultimately hampers Gonzaga too much. But it is certainly something worth watching as we get going next week with the season. Yeah, if I thought it was a deal breaker, I.

"Spin a few minutes discussing some notable teams from outside of what are typically the top 7 conferences in college basketball because we focused on those leagues in the previous 7 episodes. We did the American, the ACC the big east Big Ten big 12 PAC 12 and the SEC in that order. If you missed any of them and you're interested, go find. So now we move on to the other good notable teams outside of those leagues and naturally any list of notable teams from outside of those 7 conferences we've already previewed, has to start with Gonzaga. The zags are preseason number one everywhere best I can tell. They're the betting favorite in the betting markets. They have the preseason national player of the year in drew Timmy. They have the number one prospect in the class of 2021 according to 24 7 sports in Chet holmgren. They got Andrew nim hard, who is 21st on our list at the top 101 college basketball players in the country this season, which means Gonzaga is the only school with three players in the top 21. The zacks have experienced they have NBA talent. They on paper have what it takes to win what would be the first national title in school history. So dad, let me start by asking you this. I know you like the zags. Basically everybody likes his eggs. But do you have any concerns? In other words, if they don't meet expectations, what will be the reason? Good one to lead off with if they don't make expectations, let's first define expectations. When the WCC tournament be a number one seed, make the final four. Fair? It's all reasonable, although I'm always hesitant and I understand most people all that matters is where you finish in the instantly tournament. I got it. I'm just always hesitant to draw a pass fail line at the NCAA tournament. Because it's a single elimination deal where wild things can happen and often do. And so let's just go back to a few years ago. Virginia had an awesome season. They were the number one overall seed in the NCAA tournament. Then they lost to UMBC. So it ended badly, but that was a great season that ended badly. It wasn't a bad season. So I guess where I would put the bar for Gonzaga as we sit here on November 2nd. I'd say, yeah, when your league comfortably and be a number one seed in the NCA turn. If you do that, you have you have been one of the best basketball teams in the country over an extended period of time. That is what everybody thinks you should be. And then we'll see what happens in the NCA tournament. Yeah, I only bring up tournament result, because as you well know, result a fair amount and sometimes not how you perform in the tournament. It dictates how people think about your program can dictate whether or not you have that job to get a better one or don't have that job. So Gonzaga in particular has now slid into it's the school when it comes to this. Most reasonable rational people who actually follow sport know what they're talking about, understand that Gonzaga is one of the best programs in the sport and it's conference affiliation has almost no real impact on how great the program can be. Yes, the zags run rough shot throughout the WCC. What do you want Gonzaga to do? I'm sure if the program gets an opportunity to switch leagues and get to a more reliable multi league, it will strongly consider doing that. But that's not the reality in 21, 22. So to circle back to your question, if it doesn't meet that, what will have happened? Let's toss injuries out, out the window, because that goes without saying there. Other than that, I think it comes down to the freshman class. Chad holmgren, you know, will he be the best, the second best of the third best freshman in America? Because that is the expectation for him. He is in the conversation to be the number one pick, certainly be a top 5 pick at worst. And when you combine him, Nolan hickman, the point guard, hunter sallis, it was more of a lead guard. Stepping into the situation and playing real minutes, I think will be a factor and how they do. I think we'll wind up being important. If you tell me that holmgren Salas and hickman most notably don't wind up being immediately impactful guys, don't even come close to the level that jaylen thugs was a season ago. Then I'll tell you that Gonzaga getting a number one seed will certainly be in some doubt because you also got into get into the schedule aspect of it. And I've mentioned this on a previous podcast, but as a reminder, this year's non conference schedule still has very good teams. Gonzaga will play against Texas. It will play against UCLA. We'll play against duke. We'll play against Alabama and Texas tech. Those are all very good teams. Another power conference team, Washington is on the docket. But what's not involved in any of those is a true road environment for Gonzaga, which means it's room for error in terms of getting a number one C there's a little less they've always been able to boost their non conference resume and their overall tournament profile Gonzaga normally will play at least one good non conference opponent on the road. That's not on the schedule this season. So if Gonzaga stump was a little bit with its freshman and it gets picked off once or twice the non con I think it's overall quad one numbers are going to suffer at the end of the season..

Obviously Adam flag. What year was it was? You know that some new pieces, but the core was the same of Jerry Butler Macio Teague marked vital and I remember telling Scott drew a home game. I thought he had something special here and that was early on that was back, you know right after Thanksgiving and I picked him to win it all this year. I picked him before the season. I picked him before the tournament wage. I just felt their guards were so dominant pump and they had four of them and they complement each other very, well. They moved the ball. They're very unselfish not the Gonzaga is but I just felt like their guards as a group. We're better than gonzaga's guards and Jalen Suggs was never going to see anything like Davion Mitchell. He had never seen anything like that before and that dude off. Listen, you love Marcus Smart. If you love Marcus Smart, you have to absolutely be in love with Davion Mitchell know it gets your attention. There's no doubt..

"I never would have known that Larry Bird and Magic Johnson had Roots back in college against each other one beating the other in a national championship game. Now again, personally. I'm rooting for Gonzaga. I think it's pretty obvious why they're from my area. I like their coach. I also think, you know aside from Regional Pride which No more that makes any more on that. Honestly be cool to see an undefeated National Champion though. I think that'd be awesome. I really I like that. That's interesting That's Unique. It hasn't happened in a long time. So Gonzaga does run the table and win a National Championship. I think it'd be very very cool to see I can say I saw that in my lifetime, you know, it's a battle Gonzaga Baylor there were supposed to play back on December 5th, but the game got canceled actually at the time Gonzaga was number one Baylor was number two in the nation and would have been the Battle of one and two and Gonzaga had people test positive for covansys the game got canceled. And now we finally get to see the matchup that we missed out on in December and the question really is what Gonzaga still be undefeated said actually had to play that game off on December 5th. I mean Baylor's good. They crushed Houston. You've got a stud guard Davion Mitchell. Who is he's oddly. He's not related to Donovan Mitchell, but he's oddly similar to Donovan Mitchell. He had eleven assists against Houston and they got a guy coming off the bench Matthew Meyer who had 12 points Off the Bench. A lot of people can score on Baylor. I think it's a really interesting matchup Baylor and Gonzaga. I don't know who's going to win Baylor feels very dangerous to me off. I want to fund close game. I'd be very happy if Gonzaga one if Baylor wins, all I ask is they please win a close game? I would be very disappointed feels a blowout no matter who wins actually am I root for close games more than four teams. I think it'd be funny but fun interesting dramatic maybe over time. Maybe your buzzer beater again would be wild but I really really hope it's a close game went to close game. I'll still be very very happy. So I hope you enjoy the National Championship tonight should be a lot of fun and I really meant I just want it to be closed and fun. That's all I'm asking for. Another thing tonight.

"Speaking of straight talk The two best teams in college basketball have been Gonzaga and Baylor. Can we agree? 100%. Okay. So which of those two teams right now? Is the better team. And will that be the case when we get to the end of March? Covert aside. There's no question That that will be the case by the end of the season. I have never, Chris. I haven't felt That there are two definitive teams that will play for a national championship. I haven't felt that way in a while, because as we know In the N C. A a tournament. Most of the time. It's not even the best team that wins the whole thing. So to feel like Something catastrophic would have to happen for either Baylor Gonzaga to not be playing one another in an M C. A championship game. That's that's pretty uncommon and so that but that is definitive. That's where we're at. Those two teams air so far are separated from the field. It's pretty crazy. Now. A month ago, I would have said That Gonzaga is the best team like this is the deepest team mark few has ever had. It's probably the best team he's ever had in his 22 seasons as the head coach there, and he's had obviously very good teams. But of late and I've called a couple Baylor games here over the last few weeks. I've started to come off that position a little bit like I think I think it would be a very competitive game. Because the thing that separated me for Gonzaga is I thought they had more balanced like if you wanted to play through the post. You could do that through Judson Me. They had perimeter shooting. They have outstanding guard play, and they have 2 to 3 guys at every position. Baylor is starting to get to that level like they have outstanding guards, and I think they're guards. Their backcourt is better than Gonzaga's. They're starting to get some really good balance up front. Now they do it differently. Those guys aren't scorers. What those guys do their job, and they're pretty effective at doing it. And oh, by the way, their bench is also giving them a huge left. So if I were to pick the game today, I would probably still say Gonzaga. It's a lot closer than what I thought a month ago and and I think it's too bad. They were supposed to play each other earlier in the year, the game was postponed because of Kobe. And maybe that's better. Maybe it's a tantric slow tease. We're getting here. That when we do get it in the national championship, it'll be a great surprise. And one hell of a game. Chris. Awesome stuff. Appreciate the insight as usual. Thanks again. My pleasure boys. Have a good weekend..

Think mission is good as any team in the big 10 farm. Not, um, I've seen everybody numerous times. Now. I think there's good as anyone, the big 10. Uh, they're strong and all phases of the game. Um They they don't. They don't want at least yet. Haven't shown any weakness. Let's not going would that continues? They haven't had entry. That's not going would with that, because the kids They need to keep the top seven guys together. They're you know, Coach is playing a very tight rotation. If people haven't really, you know they're playing like 7.5 a God. So you need to make sure that all those guys they help because you lose one. It could really change your rotation. Um Gonzaga. Gonzaga is a different beast right now. I think Gonzaga is just a head above everyone, Um They are officers juggernaut. I think they're the first team ever score. 85 points plus in the 1st 12 games of the season. Which means if you're averaging 85, Plus you've quite Triple digits quite a few times. They can absolutely score the basketball and on the flip side. They do a good job guarding. But what they're saying is we just love story. You've got to stop us. You got to keep up and no one has been able to do that. So I put them Don't know ahead above everyone. Baylor Baylor, Maybe. The best defensive team I've seen this year with mission a real real close. It might be won and won it when we're talking about best defensive team. So, you know, Uh, you know, we still have a lot of basketball to go. Uh, we still need to stay healthy. I still think teams are gonna get better. Um, we still have to navigate this endemic.

"One nine straight regular season league games but after looking out they can go to Malibu and get a paradigm with a win on Saturday is not an easy place Firestone Gonzaga struggled a little bit there and of winning a game by third twelve or thirteen I think by twelve against pepper dine and pepper dying played you know good solid game box Ross is a fun guy to watch they got some players over there but I like the way the way he's playing right now playing with a lot of confidence the only child to tell everybody a little bit about the big I did miss the first nine games of the year but I know a welcome sight to coach pope pope and you guys and twenty points ten boards on Saturday a couple steals three assists you'll take that all day twelve of nineteen from the floor this guy is a beast in the paint and for folks that maybe watch Luka Garza to get an understanding of what it's like to have a yearly child story but a little bit about your well you know it is about about eleven months ago went BYU's season about backseat yeah a lot of months ago when BYU season ended in Las Vegas at the WCC tournament and at that point you only had a decision to make about whether he plays senior season or not and the decision at the time with the police name in the NBA draft so you know for all intents and purposes people thought his B. O. U. career come to a close and and he was exploring those you know that that the next level of play and he had a change of heart and then once he did it was you know is mark hopes you know job in a later to get him back to B. Y. U. N. and mark and you'll get a lot of you know heart to heart conversation about what you'll you might be able to doing only decided to come back and then before you know it the NC double a step down and make them sit for the first nine games and now you wonder will just you know what is B. white use potential this year nobody lives Gavin Baxter on top of the only suspension you really wonder you know can the kooks keep your head above water until he only gets back and that became the objective can that's exactly what they did and you mention the suspension nine games but then you add the finger injury that's four more games so a B. O. U. thirty games you always play only seventeen of them it's a little more than half the year but what an impact he's made in those seventeen games B. Y. U. fifteen aunt who was trialed in the lineup and of those two losses one of them he left early at Utah and and the cook walked to lead without a lock the game in overtime so you could argue that when he only played start to finish they lost one time this year and and and that that game was at San Francisco by all of one point then would be what you lose is this your can only two teams have gotten out from que you in Maui and Gonzaga in Spokane every other game the losses five points or fewer or in overtime and everything on the road except for San Diego state so the cooks have won a bunch when they don't lose they don't lose by a lot and your only child the big reason for that averaging twenty one at nine right now shooting high fifties in the field fifty percent from the arc when he steps back and in a second and you know to to crest in your chosen career double doubles it be why you be the only will be the only two thousand one thousand guy in BYU basketball history as he approaches two thousand points and he's already over a thousand rebounds creek here's the thing because I looked at the schedule and I said this game is even more important to be why you because they have a week off before they go to Malibu and play pepper dine and soul that came from Saturday is going to resonate with these guys for the week and that's why the way they closed it like they did to get that thirteen point when they hit ninety one point one a team as good as Gonzaga has John just got to make the guys feel great as they go to practice posted guy that says Hey you know you're only as good as your last game type coach to where don't get too high on yourselves guys it's a great win but we've got some work to do because as big as that win was at home against can sag if we go down the Malibu we lose the pepper dine we're giving up a game that for all intensive purposes if we play with any type of intensity like we play with on Saturday night at the Marriott center albeit this one on the road we are still you know in trouble if we lose that game the one damn good would be why you and I know you know this from traveling around the west coast the way you always has representation on the road well they have only one chance left to hurt themselves cannon that Saturday because if if they win that game it even even if they don't they're likely to be the two seat in Vegas what that means is the crippled by which means you don't play until Monday night could play on final four or semi final Monday and and the team you're gonna play on on Monday and if you're gonna play on Tuesday if you get the Tuesday parking her to resume the only chance lap dance the portfolio to put it being in the resumes Saturday at pepper dine and it wasn't just coach speaker lip service when coach pope just literally moments after the game ended Saturday's that as great as this was as hard as it was to begin that next week's game is already harder it just is and it's not it's a real thing because the groups have earned the right to have every game mean this much and and and a win Saturday panel ratifies or stamps with approval the contract when you almost can't let down it even though people use a lock I think right now the Q. U. degree cannon any bracket expert you have all of the creek the Cougars a maybe a lock but their seeding it unlocked and and that's really can really make some noise here in the next three games they play Saturday in Malibu and then ideally two games in Las Vegas but the what happened it gives I can not that it won't matter it'll matter lasted before you can't get on a Malibu with the wind now I will say that B. Y. U. does an agreement in agreement your point travel really well represent really well when they go especially the so cal so it's a small gym Firestone fieldhouse and B. Y. you can put a good number of fans in there and it has happened historically yet B. Y. is also just for the for in the last eight games at Firestone fieldhouse they lost four straight at one point they lost four straight years in Malibu with some pretty good teams players that feel that teams that feature players like you know Pilar hogs and Eric Micah and then the lights are bright and others so we always had some rough goes in that building so nothing can be taken for granted or or you know counted with pepper nine I think playing better than their fifteen and fourteen records only eight and seven in the league but you put Kohli rock for the Edwards brothers on the floor and you can have a challenge no question about it acrid rebel follow him on Twitter bill the last name W. R. U. B. E. L. L. Greg Jake Toolson TJ haws you mention Tyler haws older brother TJ tell me a little bit about these two I mean I know a little bit more than most but tell the country that may know of the name the only child of course don't know the last name because it's a basketball family extradition been going way back with Jake Toolson maybe somebody that nobody outside of Provo knows too much about enlighten our listeners twelve Jake Toolson is someone mark pope called the best pure shooter in America yet five threes against the stags on on Saturday and none and none of them are towing the line he was the U. with NBA on all of them you know and then coach coke you know only half jokingly told Andy Katz Jake apparently decided he was not going to shoot anything inside twenty seven feet because the three he made were deep any the forty seven percent three hour at three forty six percent three point shooter little better than that from the field makes his free throws he's a sixteen five and four guy at the release all the line and he scored twenty five in the win over pap a month ago so January thirtieth in Provo the games started BYU's eight game win streak you're on right now Jake was seven for ten from deep in that game that's who he is he with the lack player of the year last year Utah valley he started his career at BYU transferred to Utah valley with coach pope when he took the job and then came back the B.

"That's and the feedback. I got was all the play anyone Vegas accounts for that that they're not playing anyone against aga-. Even though they're favored historically by twenty twenty five thirty points a game. They're still covering by double digits per game. That's what makes it a little historic Vegas accounts for the opposition. That's what a spread his all about. So I I found that little peculiar when I tweeted this out all the facts here. But lean for me is on loyal again. I questioned and what we can zag off such a big win performance. This is the first to back to back road trips. They play like that Thursday, Saturday night type of thing. I think in zag and maybe in the second half takes a foot off the gas pedal a little bit. I wanna talk big picture, though, little Gonzaga because you know, AJ mentioned it maybe the most complete team a team that did beat Duke earlier in the season, if they're healthy, you mentioned the Killian Tilly injury hasn't really played much. This year buddy was kind of a pre. Season all west coast conference type team they can get him for the tournament and by tournament. I mean the tournament the NCAA tournament, I think that'll definitely help out there depth big picture Gonzaga's. His team as good as the team that the just couple years ago play for the national championship and a game was maybe wrapped accordingly. They might have won it and cut down the nets. Yeah. I I think I think this team is better. They don't have. I guess the star power just if you can call it that. But but I I don't see any holes in this team. They can shoot the ball. They defend as well as anybody. I mean, they are just they're good everywhere. They're experienced they're well coached. It's just a really well put together team. I I have them now after this weekend. I'm I moved them from three to address Virginia below them. So I've got Duke Gonzaga, Virginia. Now, my top three, but Gonzaga is in in my mind right there behind Duke right now. And I think this is this is one of the better if not the best team. Gonzaga's head yet. I got Gonzaga number two also in my parenting. Go ahead. And when people tell you Gonzaga doesn't play anybody in conference, they don't, but they still despite playing in the west coast conference, they're still eighty fifth in strength of schedule. Yeah. Because they played Duke non-conference, they played North Carolina non-conference, they played Tennessee non-conference who else is doing that. Who else is going out and playing three top top five teams in the non conference? Nobody's doing that. So I think that they're putting this team together for a tournament run. And I think that prepares them as well as anybody for a big tournament run this season. Yeah. And I agree and luck. My rooting interests are on my individual bats for my clients for myself. I you know, I put on a fan hat here. I kinda wanna see Gonzaga win at all to be perky is a program that's built themselves up the last two neck aids have been close we're really close couple years ago. I I mean, and I'm not a little David verse, Goliath, usually I like. The Goliath, but taken zag is more like Goliath, and they are David I kind of would root for the program, but to cut down the nets that'd be good for college basketball against zag Duke final with Kazakh winning good for the sport. Yeah. We've had a lot. I mean, we've had a lot of teams get really close Gonzaga got really close against North Carolina. But we've yet to see one of these smaller conference teams really breakthrough. You know, the the the power five conferences, plus the big east. They've won it forever. Now. I think the last time you got someone other than them was you've got to go back to UNLV. Yeah. So I mean, you're you're going way both at nine hundred ninety. Yep..

"And when everyone thinks he he's gonna zig zag, but that's just how I've attacked at least my inner circle of people around here. I've seen a lot more individual player props on the Pat side as far as recommendations. And then overall game flow how they think it's going to be relatively played van a lot of people attacking Rams props. Just haven't seen and haven't seen the overall market move that much. All right. So let's go into college basketball here. Let's talk the west coast conference for a couple of minutes. What are the smaller conferences in college basketball, only ten teams here, Gonzaga, clearly far away head and shoulders the class of this conference is this team as good as the previous ones that we've seen Brad? He I think it is. And at least they're showing where it matters and that that'd be your pocketbook. I mean, just look at the I mean, this is remarkable and we'll get more broad range. I think the conference is pretty good this year, at least a lot more balance of what it's been in the last five or six years, but last ten games for conveyance dating back to right around December eighteenth, obviously that won Gonzaga all ten they've covered. Eight of those ten games by an average covering by an average of lemon points per game. The most remarkable thing for me is average line. This isn't football. This is basketball average line for. Zagging in their last ten games. Twenty five point six they've been an average of a twenty five point six favorite. And yet they're a into against the number with an average cover of nearly eleven points for game that in itself to me. I don't care what the competition is the fact that they're laying big time huge numbers, and they're still getting the job done when it comes to the pocket book and cash and tickets way, which is what it's all about. Yeah. I think in zag is just as good as we've seen from them. And the last decade if not I mean, if they're completely healthy, maybe the second best Gonzaga team. We've seen a outside of the team that ended up making it to the national championship game. I think I can firmly say that and we've seen that earlier on the season. They've challenged themselves close game against Tennessee nip tuck game what we're Tennessee hit a couple of threes late otherwise Gonzaga win that game. And it's he's number one in the country. And then as far as the people and then the number one power rated team Duke, obviously Zaka won that game. So yeah, I I don't have a lot of question marks about Kentucky. And we'll get into it here. The fact that I think the conference is a little bit better, especially at the top. I think there's five top one hundred teams this year..

"Strong first-half the Gonzaga BULLDOGS number seven in the country. They lead the Broncos forty-seven to twenty-seven Anthony Passarelli and Phil von buckwald joining us as he does every year. We're up here at Spokane and the turnover Chicago problems for the Broncos as their nine turnovers have turned into twelve points be wild Santa Clara has not been able to capitalize too much turn overs. Only three of them for the BULLDOGS have turned into two points. When we see a twenty point advantage for the BULLDOGS, but we see that same advantage in the points in the pain twenty eight to fourteen for guns aga-, let's be honest. It's a different caliber that the Broncos are facing athletes like Clark and hachi Maura, and it takes a while to adjust to the speed one thing that the Broncos have is a lot of bodies. And a lot of hype to throw at them. But to me in the United spoke about this just a minute ago it still the execution on offense. It's very good at times. And we've seen some great layups coming out of that flow. But at times, it's it's a little too casual considering the pressure you mentioned, and he's turnovers right away just turned into points. And it's more points than an avalanche. Next thing. You know, you look up an twenty months Haci Merle leading the way with eighteen to go with his three rebounds. Brad Clark has thirteen with four board Santa Clara led by Yosef Frankish, just nine Willie Caruso looking to get it in. And it's tipped but grabbed by targeting the baseline Broncos got a big break there as touch crosses half court. He's quickly doubled. And the ball is loose on the floor. Grab by Perkins and take it by Jones who just came into the game another term Bronco turnover. Perkins look at around as he holds out top Burkitt's going to step back. Fire three it is missed and hachi bur rather Jones badly for it. Into the hands of just reached in and pulled it away. Still a twenty point lead the Broncos get it back eighty looking to turn the corner. Eighty step back floater oh front. Iron miss. It was a good idea. Zeki Richard Santa fingertip on it. But knocks it over the baseline to Gonzaga and good battle by Zeki one on three tipping it out of bounds. What it does it allows the Broncos to sit there defense in an escape without a fast break on this possession. One twenty six now. One twenty two clock running as Norval walks the dribble over half court Tilly back in the game for Mark view. Perkins has the ball to right wing whips it into the corner to till who's open for three. Makes it from the corner a luxury to have a seven footer who can hit the corner. Three ezekiel's. You gotta be aware of that. And Caruso, as well they have to go out and garden out there. It's tilles first game. He had October ankle surgery for a stress fracture was supposed to miss eight weeks. He's back in the lineup back playing for Mark view. And this is a deep dribble by Keyshawn Justice backing in against Jones and has his shot partially blocked by Josh Martin. And Josh Martin is grabbed on the arm. I think that was the correct call. I think he got fouled about six times Gonzaga players look around like what happened that was a foul. We're not used to this. Tilles third personal foul. Brandy clark. It's ready to check in Josh Martin to the line. We talked about adjusting the intensity out here. It's it's different. It's something new for them. And they're learning the Broncos learning and they're Justin Josh Martin is sixty percent. Found shooter misses the first one Clark will come in for Tilly who goes to the bench Broncos at thirty seven percent Gonzaga at fifty eight percent. And how's this for the BULLDOGS fourteen of sixteen from the line for the Broncos are four seven after that miss one more here for Josh Martin in the air. Mr Clark, the rebound. Zach norville. Those two free throws hurt. It's an empty trip. When the Broncos actually had a good possession. Pensively time winding down in the half twenty on the timer. Thirty left. The opening half Santa Clara down by twenty three. Jump shot missed inside the paint. Zach Norval shot is missed in Zeki. Richards has the rebound and the Broncos will play the final shot near as Taiji crosses half court slows down now. Ten now nine still out there midcourt at the logo. Now. Seven Russo such extreme Tochigi working against Clark with three pull up three pointer is best into the air grabbed by Perkins. And that'll do it for the first half. And Clark is not the one you want to switch on you will challenge at three point of way out there beyond the three point line. Fifty two twenty-seven is our scored is halftime at the McCarthy at center ROY hachi Mira on the midseason watchlist for the top player in the NCAA has eighteen points with three rebounds. Broncos led by Llosa Frankish nine points. We've I stick around for the university credit union halftime show as Phil and John almost fourteen feet at halftime interview will break down the action for the first half universe. Credit Union Bank with your brain. And that John Phil interview brought to you by Rocco's ice cream..
