Gonzaga plays Saint Mary’s in the WCC finals, Tuesday, March 7, 2017, at the Orleans Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Dear Mr. Committee Man: Seed this.
Gonzaga finally got its big celebration under the lights when it claimed the West Coast Conference tournament championship,
The wins came one after another. Eighty- and 90-point nights were routine on the offensive end. Opponents rarely cracked the 60-point barrier.
As Gonzaga completed its seemingly inevitable march to the NCAA Tournament for a 19th consecutive year, there became one unanswerable question.
No. 4 Gonzaga and No. 19 Saint Mary’s demonstrated why they are the best two teams in the WCC with dominating stretches. The Zags ruled the first half, the Gaels the first 10 minutes of the second before Gonzaga regained control to earn a 74-56 victory Tuesday and the WCC tournament championship at Orleans Arena.
