It’s always a norm when the Gaels and Bulldogs meet that first place in the WCC is on the line.
That is the case here as both teams have 21 wins, but with lack of schedule, they are certainly both on the bubble teams. The only for sure way to grab a bid? Win the conference.
St. Mary’s Gaels
The Gaels control their own destiny for the regular season title and 1 seed here.
St. Mary’s will look for a season sweep over the Bulldogs and grab the tiebreaker when they meet on Saturday night. Currently, St. Mary’s sits 1 game behind Gonzaga, but on 1/21 they took down Gonzaga 70-67.
The Gaels shot 50% from the field, but the game was won on the defensive end. St. Mary’s got some key stops down the stretch to hold Gonzaga from making a late push.
St. Mary’s brings in a 5-3 SU road record and has gone 4-4 ATS in those 8 games.
Gonzaga had their chance to jump back into the Top 25, but a stumble to SMU removed any chance of that happening.
While they’ll certainly be in the discussion come tournament time, they can remove all doubt by just winning the conference. Winning the regular season would go a long way incase they do stumble somewhere in the WCC Tournament.
The Bulldogs have just 2 conference losses, a home stumble vs. BYU and the road loss to the Gaels.
Overall, they are 11-3 SU at home and are outscoring their opponents by 20 points at 82-62 on their home floor.
