It is never a surprise when St. Mary’s and Gonzaga meet in the WCC Tournament. It is often in the finals.
St. Mary’s is well below the Zags this season. The only advantage they have is that they have had had to play a game to get to the semi-finals.
In two regular-season meetings between these teams Gonzaga has won by a combined 36 points this season.
St. Mary’s Gaels
The Gaels are the fourth seed in the WCC Tournament this season. They advance off a 52-47 win over Loyola Marymount. Another low scoring game for the Gaels.
St. Mary’s plays a slow it doesn’t style against everyone. It is not just a strategy they are using to try and equalize things against the much more talented Bulldogs.
As the more tired teams they are going to try and slow things down even more. I am not seeing it being enough of an equalizer for the Gael’s. They gave up 87 points at Gonzaga. They would have to hold the Bulldogs to half of that to have a shot.
The only pressure on Gonzaga is to keep winning to they can enter the Tourmanent with a perfect record. Having beaten the Gaels twice already this season they know what to do.
Gonzaga has not played in more than a week. The last time they played was against Loyola-Marymount as well. They beat the Lions by 17, if you are looking for another comp of how much better the Bulldogs are than the Gaels.

4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Gonzaga ATS
St. Mary’s will slow down the game but it is going to take a lot more than that for them to be competitive in this one. SMC just doesn’t have the players this season.
