The Bulldogs built up a 12 point lead at the half and extended in their win. Gonzaga was hot shooting as they hit on 54.7% of their shots with 7 of 15 coming from the three point line. They produced a good defensive performance allowing the BYU Cougars just 37.7% shooting.

St Mary’s advanced to the finals of the WCC conference tourney off their 83-78 win against a pesky San Francisco Dons team as a -8 point favorite in the semifinal round. They overcame a four point deficit at the half. The Gaels shot 54.2% from the floor in the win but allowed San Francisco to make 52.8% of their shots. St Mary’s went through stretches last season with poor defensive play and we will see if that trend continues. The WCC conference semifinals were played on Saturday so each team competes tonight with a day of rest.
