Broncos advance to semifinals vs. GU

No. 1-seeded Gonzaga will take on No. 4 Santa Clara, which eliminated San Diego 80-69 on Saturday night at the Orleans Arena, in the semifinals of the WCC Tournament on Sunday night. Tip-off is at 6:30.

No. 2 Saint Mary’s awaits the winner of Saturday night’s No. 3 Portland-No. 6 Pepperdine contest, which starts in about 30 minutes, in the other semi.

The Broncos (16-16) opened up a 38-23 halftime lead on the fifth-seeded Toreros. John Bryant had 11 points and 17 rebounds in the first half. Kevin Foster chipped in three 3-pointers and 12 points.

San Diego (16-16) closed within seven early in the second half, but Marc Trasolini’s three-point play restored a 10-point edge. The Broncos eventually led by as many as 20 as the Toreros sputtered on offense.

Bryant finished with 24 points and 27 rebounds. Foster added 21 points.

The top-seeded Gonzaga women’s team will meet No. 4 Loyola Marymount in the semifinals at noon Sunday. Renahy Young scored 23 points and Cassady Moore added 15 points and eight rebounds to help the Lions past No. 8 Santa Clara 71-60.
