There were some upsets early, but we got the matchup we expected in the West Coast Conference tournament. No. 1 Gonzaga met No. 2 Saint Mary’s in the finals, and as expected, the Zags took home the trophy. It’s the third time the Bulldogs have defeated the Gaels this season.

Mark Few’s team is now 32-1 headed into the NCAA Tournament, and all signs point to a likely No. 1 seed on Selection Sunday. They showed they deserved it, too, winning with an 18-point margin against a Saint Mary’s team that is nearly a lock for the NCAA Tournament as well. 

These aren’t your grandfather’s Zags.
