Saint Mary’s Gaels

They are 8-1 in their last nine games. In one of those wins they held San Diego to 27 points.

The Gaels are led by Junior Center Jock Landale. He is averaging 17.0 points and 9.5 rebounds per game.
For the Gales to win it comes down to the defensive side of the ball. BYU is a very good team on the offensive side of the ball and the Gaels need to slow that down to win.
The BYU Cougars have also had a good season but they are currently on the outside looking in for the NCAA tournament. They need to win out to have any shot to get in, and that starts Saturday night against the Gaels.
