This is a hugely unbalanced matchup. Pacific is 219th in the KenPom rankings and was just blown out at Gonzaga last week.
The Tigers were overmatched at the Kennel in a 33-point loss. They did bounce back to take down Loyola Marymount, which is ranked similarly at KenPom.
This game will be a lot more similar to that blowout in Gonzaga, where the Tigers could only make three three-pointers and get to the line for 11 free throw attempts. Not a single scorer was in double-figures.
St. Mary’s Gaels
St. Mary’s doesn’t have the size that Gonzaga does, but its offense is great on a national level. The Gaels (24th) are looking up at Gonzaga (9) at KenPom, but their offense is the third-best in the country, according to the metrics.
Jock Landale certainly has some size. The 6’11” forward from Australia leads the team in scoring at nearly 22 points per game. He also rips down a smidgen under ten boards per. He’s shooting 66 percent from the field and is just off 33 points on 13-for-15 from the field against BYU.
The next three highest scorers on St. Mary’s roster shot over 40 percent from three. The team pours it in at 41.3 percent from long distance and average a stupendous nine turnovers per game.
Then there’s McKeon Pavilion, which is a uniquely difficult place for opposing teams to play. This game should not be close.
