make no mistake this game had become a pivot point circled on the zags calendar.Zags get a really nice win against Alabama. They played very well, cutting out the turnovers, causing turnovers, and having very good offensive flow. Guard play was so much better. The most encouraging part is it was a really good opponent and they showed they can come out on top. Much of this season has had me very concerned but if they can keep up this kind of guard play and play some good D the just might have another tournament run in them.
if zags lose, they risk dropping out of the top 25 and leaving a dark cloud over their heads the rest of the season. but the zags won, and are now headed back towards the top 10 with a bunch of momentum and optimism headed into conference play.
best game hickman and watson have had in a zags uni. offense flowed better than it had all season. guys made smart decisions, took what the defense gave them. out-rebounded, but not for lack of hustle. only 9 TO vs a strong defensive team.
few will sleep good tonight.
