On Saturday night, Trey Anastasio Trio continued their tour, finishing up a two-night run at the Chicago Theatre. With two night’s scheduled in at this historic Chicago venue, the trio of guitarist Trey Anastasio, bassist Tony Markellis, and drummer Russ Lawton had the opportunity to settle into the venue and offer up an expanded collection of takes from Anastasio’s catalog. Offering up nine tour debuts, the performance saw a healthy mix of Trey Anastasio Band staples coupled with relative rarities for the trio/band.Starting things off with “46 Days”, a relative rarity for Trey Anastasio Band, the trio then moved into fan favorite, “Camel Walk”, ahead of “Heavy Things”, a song that Anastasio, Markellis, and Lawton debuted with Trey Anastasio Band in 1999. From there, the band hit renditions of “Cayman Review” and “Last Tube”, with the latter first getting its debut when the trio’s members were still performing under the moniker 8 Foot Fluorescent Tubes two decades ago. From there, the band offered up the tour debut of “Anything But Me”, marking the first time that the number had been performed non-acoustically by a Trey Anastasio Band outfit. From there, the group closed out their first set with “Alaska” and another Trey Anastasio Band staple, “Simple Twist Up Dave”.“Alaska”[Video: Sojahsey1]Starting off set two, Trey Anastasio Trio returned with “Ghost”, followed up by “Corona” and “Stealing Time From The Faulty Plan”. “Ghost”, “Corona”, and “Stealing Time From The Faulty Plan” have been performed this tour so far, with all those songs last performed during the second set of Wednesday’s show in Grand Rapids, Michigan, last week. From there, the trio played “Prince Caspian” ahead of the Trey Anastasio band debut of “Shade” and a take on the beloved rarity “Windora Bug”. To close out set two, the trio offered up a take on favorite “Steam” before “Farmhouse” and “Bounce” closed out the set.“Corona”[Video: Sojahsey1]“Farmhouse”[Video: Sojahsey1]Keeping with the theme for the majority of this tour, Trey Anastasio emerged solo for the beginning of the encore—Anastasio did not perform a solo acoustic encore opener during the first night in Chicago, hinting at the fact that these special encores will only occur on the last night the Phish guitarist plays with his trio. Offering up acoustic takes on “Waste”, “Bathtub Gin”, and “Chalk Dust Torture”, Chicago got a good selection of Trey’s solo acoustic work before the rest of the trio emerged for a final rendition of “First Tube”.“Waste” (Trey Anastasio Solo)[Video: Sojahsey1]“Chalkdust Torture” (Trey Anastasio Solo)[Video: Douglas Norton]Setlist: Trey Anastasio Trio | Chicago Theatre | Chicago, IL | 4/21/2018Set I: 46 Days, Camel Walk, Heavy Things, Cayman Review, Last Tube, Anything But Me, Dark and Down, Drifting, Alaska, Simple Twist Up DaveSet II: Ghost, Corona, Stealing Time From the Faulty Plan, Prince Caspian, Shade, Mr. Completely, Windora Bug, Steam, Farmhouse, BounceEncore: Waste, Bathtub Gin, Chalk Dust Torture, First Tube Trey solo acoustic.
The Gonzaga report: Gonzaga is also the eighth tallest team in the country, per Kenpom.com. It is likely due to the experienced big men Kyle Wiltjer and Domantas Sabonis on the roster, both of whom are at least 6-foot-10. Another big man Przemek Karnowski (7-foot-1) was injured five games into the season. He was arguably the team’s best player.The Bulldogs didn’t do much wrong this year. Its’ worst loss came at home to UCLA. It also lost to St. Mary’s twice, before defeating it in the WCC championship game. They didn’t collect many good wins, though, until the NCAA Tournament. A win over Connecticut in the Battle 4 Atlantis was the best regular season win. Sabonis, though, is one of the best at his position, averaging more than 11 rebounds per game. Syracuse will have a tough time going up the Bulldogs’ their size. Published on March 22, 2016 at 6:24 pm Contact Sam: [email protected] | @SamBlum3 Logan Reidsma | Senior Staff Photographer How Syracuse beats Gonzaga: The Orange needs to find a way to keep the ball out of the high post so Wiltjer and Sabonis can’t find too many scoring opportunities. They will get their points and they will get their rebounds, and because of that the Orange will need to do other things right. That involves making 3s and limiting the Bulldogs on the offensive glass. Unfortunately for the Orange, GU also limits 3-point shooting really well, and shoots it at a high percentage from the outside. Syracuse has the advantage of having played tough teams that are good at rebounding this season and finding a way to hang in there. But unlike North Carolina, GU is dangerous with 3s. So this isn’t an ideal matchup for SU, but there are few that are for the Orange.Stat to know: Both Gonzaga and Syracuse play very tight rotations. The Bulldogs only use their bench 22.9 percent of the time, which is 338th in Division I. Syracuse uses its bench 16.2 percent of the time, good for 350th in Division I. Having six or seven players has seemed to hurt SU this season a bit, but the Orange will be on a level playing field in that area come Friday.Player to watch: Sabonis is a monster on the glass, and it will be interesting to see if Syracuse can find a way to at least neutralize that ability. He’s had 14 games this season where he had 10 or more rebounds on the defensive glass alone. There’s no way to know which Tyler Roberson shows up to battle with him on the boards, but if it’s not the “plugged-in” one, then Sabonis will likely be able to bully the Orange and make it a lot harder for it to win.

The No. 10 seed Orange won two games in St. Louis this past weekend, upsetting No. 7 seed Dayton before taking care of business against the Cinderella story in 15th-seeded Middle Tennessee State.
