Some of the Gonzaga guys like Timme and Kispert would scare me if we drafted them. I mean they're great college players.Id love to add Kispert, but not in the area some mocks have him. He's floating between 7-13 in some mocks. I think he can be a sniper at the next level, but that's a bit rich for my blood.
I thought Timme was Olynyk soft on defense and didnít think he could guard the perimeter. Yet there he was switching on guards out on the perimeter. He didnít do an amazing job, but he did a better job than most of the Zag guards did, who were getting blown by. He at least slowed them down or forced them to pass. Much better than I expected he could do.
The main reason the Zags lost is the same reason the UCLA game was so close. They werenít getting rebounds because they did a poor job boxing out or ran back early on defense, and they couldnít hit a 3 point shot. They shot poorly against UCLA and even worse against Baylor, while the Bears were lights out from 3.
That was a make or miss game and Gonzaga missed so many 3s that they should have been wearing green.
