Kispert and the Big Man from Iowa have been the two best players in the country this year.
GU has played 4 ranked teams already, and thrashed them by an average margin of 12/5 points.
Against those 4 teams, Kispert scored 32, 13 (foul trouble), 19 and 23
Against those 4 teams, Timme scored 29, 15, 17 and 25
Against those 4 teams, Suggs scored 8, 27, 4 and 24.
Against those 4 teams, GU’s “Big 3” combined to shoot 56% on 85/151.
Takeaways: Against some of the highest ranked teams in the country, GU’s studs DOMINATED their competition. These 3 almost never take a bad shot. They are incredibly talented and incredibly disciplined, and have–by a wide margin IMHO–the best coach in the country.
I love Coach Pope, and love what he is doing and will do in the future, but I just don’t think we have anywhere near the horsepower to stop these guys. I was wrong when I predicted SDSU would beat us by 10+, but I think this one is GU by 15 and taking their foot off the gas.
