Pargo steps up

GONZAGA, 31-26

Like a lot of sophomores, Jeremy Pargo can disappear some nights and be the best guy on the court others.

In this 4-minute stretch he has been the former.

And that's why the Zags have been able to break out in front. That, and the defensive change we talked about in the last post.

The Zags' matchup has stymied the Bulldogs, as Georgia has taken the route GU wants: attacking with the dribble on the baseline.

Such a choice is disaster against the Zags' zone, as they double team the ball and get in the passing lanes, denying any reversal and forcing turnovers.

Then it's a fastbreak drill.
