There's a steak that needs breaking before it gets to 100.

The game will be on espn2. Armchair statistics you won't find on kenpom: The Pilots are 2-2 and have been playing well on ESPN channels this year with yesterday's win on espnU and close losses to North Carolina and Michigan State on ESPN. On espn2 the pilots are 1-0 with a win over Villanova.

Another streak on the line: Gonzaga's last loss to a WCC team other than SMC or BYU was on February 22, 2014. That one was at USD...

...which came about 6 weeks after the Pilots took down #23 Gonzaga at the Chiles Center. And about 2 weeks after the Pilots came within a couple of minutes of sweeping the Zags, but ultimately lost in Spokane 71-66 -- a game that I will always remember watching at Tom's Pizza on Lombard (RIP) because of our heroic second-half comeback to briefly take the lead with 5:00 left, after having trailed by 22 points late in the first half.

All of our games against GU since then have been double-digit losses.

Gonzaga would be wise to prepare for the PK85 version of the Pilots and not the injury-riddled squad of recent weeks. Legans said there’s a chance Meadows could return for Saturday’s game.

“They’re a scrappy bunch, kind of junk up the game and do a lot of things,” Few said. “I would guess they’ll just sit there and let us shoot as many 3s as we want, like they did last year, and do all kinds of stuff.”

Gonzaga torched Portland with a McCarthey Athletic Center record 18 3-pointers in a 104-72 rout last season.

“We’ve got to play our game, be physical and tough,” Legans said. “Last year, our game plan was to go under ball screens and pack in on (Drew) Timme. We have to come up with a different plan because that didn’t work.

“We have to protect the inside. For 15, 20 years, they’ve been the best 2-point percentage team in the country. We have to slow that down and not give up all those 3s. This is a balanced team. They’re elite at everything.”

Legans has watched from afar as GU capped three straight second-half comebacks with suspenseful wins.

“They know how to win,” he said. “These games might mean more to them in March than anything else. It’s helping them for the long haul. What they’re doing in the long run is building character with their team and finding ways to win.”

Game over after 5 minutes. Very disappointing.

Every time this team gives me a bit of hope, we suddenly revert back to TP-levels of play.

I mean I know we're kinda hurt, and this is on the Zags' court, but stop doing this to me please.

This performance cannot be attributed to the injuries. This is just embarrassing.

I had a bad feeling didn’t watch it - good deciton
We have a good nucleus of players. The home game before Gonzaga showed what it can do.
Did Logan’s do a post game? Can you please post it.
