Obviously everyone around various Bruin related online communities are putting in their respective 2 cents on our matchups with the Zags this Thursday night. Sportsline has more on the matchup between the Zags and Bruins with this bit on Zag's strengths and weaknesses:
Weaknesses: Not a lot of depth, with just two reserves seeing more than 290 minutes of action this season over 30 games. Three of the starters, led by Morrison's 36.5, play at least 32 minutes a game, too. However, if Gonzaga controls the tempo, which they do as well as any team in the country, that shouldn't be a huge issue. Rebounding, however, could become a problem, as Morrison needs to avoid wanting to run against the bigger teams and remain in the post for defensive boards
Bruin seven-footer Ryan Hollins will get the starting assignment against Batista, but he will need back-up help from his teammates on the floor and from the bench.
Despite UCLA having practically its full stable of centers available for the game, aside from Hollins, none of the other players would appear to match up well against Batista. Lorenzo Mata, Ryan Wright, and Alfred Aboya may not have the size or experience to guard Batista; however, senior center Michael Fey might be an option.
