This is what the West Coast Conference is all about. The last time Gonzaga lost was at home against St. Mary’s so you can bet they are looking to return the favour.
The Gaels have the gaudy record but little respect (even though they are ranked #12). If they could beat Gonzaga twice in one season that would open some eyes. Not sure the last time that happened, if ever.
The Zags have won six straight since that loss to St. Mary’s but they haven’t covered once. The magic isn’t gone in Spokane but this team is not as good as the last couple that have gone deep in the tournament.
By sticking around Johnathan Williams has risen to the top of the scoring list for Gonzaga. He averages 13ppg and has good versatility to his game.
Josh Perkins is just a smidge behind him and he too has taken advantage of new opportunities. Both are experienced players who do not force their own offense.
Amazingly the Zags have four other players averaging 10+ ppg. They have a whole bunch of shooters but not the same inside presence they have had in the past.
St. Mary’s Gaels
It feels like every year the Gaels rack up lots of wins and every year there is question of whether they have done enough. Other than that one win over Gonzaga on the road there isn’t much there.
Jock Landale is having a great season, scoring 22ppg and owning the board. SMC plays a slow down style and he gives them a good option every time down the floor.
Calvin Hermanson’s shooting percentages are up but his scoring is down. That is a rare combo for a senior who plays a lot. You wonder if they will ever turn him loose.
There is no doubt this is a good team but the Zags are the hurdle in front of them and they have to clear it again to feel good about where they are at the moment.

Free Gonzaga Bulldogs vs. St. Mary’s Gaels NCAAB Prediction:
I have to think that the Gaels will be favoured on their home floor. Gonzaga is rarely in underdog roles in the conference.
If that winds up being the case there are some great numbers that suggest taking the Zags, especially in this matchup against SMC.

Gonzaga is 4-1 ATS since 2011 as a road dog at St. Mary’s. That is with a 3-2 SU record too.
