RE: Week 5 of Conference Play
GCU is really really slow, period. If UMKC had one or two decent big men they would be dangerous. The guards for UMKC are really quick and shoot well from the 3 point line. I think if a team presses GCU they get killed. Benson is slow and is a terrible defender. He has one move to the basket, drive from the left side and hope for a foul while he throws it up. Braun, due to injuries, age, cheeseburgers, whatever is also a terrible defender. GCU has a decent record because of all those home games vs. horrible competition. At this point right now I can't see them making a run in the tourney. They will lose more games. They are a solid 3rd or 4th place finish in the WAC depending if they defend their house vs. Seattle who had an usually poor shooting night at home vs. GCU. I foresee 3-4 losses for GCU in WAC play come tourney time. I know my Chicago State prediction was way off vs. GCU but GCU is out of the WAC regular season championship run already, count on that. It is fun watching Dan Majerle turn every shade of red/pink during the season. My favorite is when GCU misses a point blank layup and he turns around in disgust and just throws himself into his chair talking to himself and his assistant next to him! Precious!

90-67 Aggies over the Valley. Aggies had a slow start and the Valley started good. Game settled down and the Aggies took over. This game featured 2 of the best scorers in the league. Aggies held Dixon about 6 points lower than his mark at 15 and Lofton scored 34. Had a big scare when Sidy went down but he seems to be ok. Good game Valley.

Ugly game by both SU and UVU. Kavas with a career worst game, 0/10 and 0/6 from 3. 1 point. UVU not having Manyang was likely a big reason Menzies went off for his forth straight doube-doubles, but either way he is on fire these last few games.

Big win for SU, biggest for Hayford thus far.

Huge crowd too of 3200+ and electric atmosphere for homecoming. Haven't seen anything like it since the SU/Idaho game in 2014-15 season

Seattle is 16-8 and they have a very good shot at winning 20 games, something they have not accomplished since the 1968-1969 season. Hayford is doing a outstanding job in his first season at Seattle.
Seattle had 4,448 for their home game against CSUB the week before. Good signs for the program. Seattle should be able to average 4,000 to 5,000 per game if they can put a good team on the floor.

The attendance averages for the WAC are pretty solid to this point:

GCU - 7,004 per game
NMSU- 5,296 per game
UVU- 3,401 per game
CSUB- 2,779 per game

UTRGV attendance will get better when they move into their new arena in the fall. That arena will hold up to 7,688 for basketball. Cal Baptist recently had 4,414 for their win over rival Azuza Pacific at home. They will easily average 3,000 to 4,000 in that arena when they join the WAC this fall.

UMKC and Chicago State have good arenas to play in, but they are both playing some really bad basketball and they are not going to fix their attendance issues without competitive basketball programs.

It gets pretty quiet on this board when the Aggies are rolling. The only time I see activity on this board is when there a chink in NMSU's armor.

I was just thinking how quiet it was all week, other than some chatter about adding some schools. As for GCU, the last two games were against UMKC and CSU, so, not a lot to really get intonas the games played out as expected. I plan on posting tonight throughout the game. I hope the Lopes have a good showing. After UVU lost again I’m hoping GCU can beat them at home convincingly and finish in sole second place with 20 wins. Who knows what can happen in Vegas.
