Gonzaga blew open a close game at halftime in the second half to down Saint Mary’s 84-66 in the WCC Championship game last night. Drew Timme scored 15 of his 17 points in the first half as the Bulldogs had 5-players in double-figures. It’s Gonzaga’s 17th West Coast Conference Tournament Title overall and 8th in the last 10-years.
Joel Ayayi also had 17-points while Filip Petrusev had 10-points and 10-rebounds; Corey Kispert scored 12-points; and Admon Gilder scored 15.
Speculation is that Gonzaga will receive a #1 seed to the NCAA Tournament.
