Action from the Gonzaga vs. Saint Mary's WCC Tournament men's championship game on Tuesday, March 12, 2019, in Las Vegas.
Have you heard about the new March Madness Savings Time? If you’re the Gonzaga Bulldogs, you set your clocks back to a No. 2 seed.
Gonzaga’s offense, a record-setting cornerstone throughout the season, labored through a miserable night, setting a handful of records at the opposite end of the spectrum.
Josh Perkins, Zach Norvell Jr. and Geno Crandall haven’t had to be the best players on the court most games, largely because the Zags have two All-America candidates patrolling the paint: redshirt junior forwards Rui Hachimura and Brandon Clarke.
Key moment, offensive MVP and defensive MVP from Gonzaga’s 60-47 loss to Saint Mary’s in the championship game of the WCC Tournament in Las Vegas.
The script for this one has been performed before. Twice this season, in fact. Underdog Saint Mary’s stays close to top-ranked Gonzaga for a while. The Gaels slow the pace, hit shots, deny transition and for 20, 30 minutes, force GU to play their way. And then the Zags explode. Except on Tuesday night in Las Vegas, they didn’t.
