Couple of early surprises

ZAGS, 9-5

The first surprise was starting Abdullahi Kuso instead of Sean Mallon.

The second surprise was Matt Bouldin scoring GU's first five points.

Sorry, surprise isn't the right word to use in conjunction with Bouldin. Nothing Bouldin does is really a surprise anymore.

We saw, right off the bat, Nevada guarding Heytvelt with Ikovlev, who just picked up a foul, and the Zags try to get the ball inside to Heytvelt when that happens. When 7-1 David Ellis came in, the Nevada offense stalled, so Ikovlev came right back.
