ESPN: Saint Mary's should challenge Gonzaga

http://insider.espn.go.com/ncb/insider/news/story?id=6044857&action=login&appRedirect=http%3a%2f%2finsider.espn.go.com%2fncb %2finsider%2fnews%2fstory%3fid%3d6044857


Gonzaga sports the next best offense (1.16) but after last night's shellacking by Santa Clara, the Zags are allowing slightly more than a point per possession (1.03 OPPP). The road to the WCC crown still goes through Spokane however, and a visiting team hasn't won there since 2006-07. The Jan. 27 matchup between Saint Mary's and Gonzaga at the Kennel will be a good test for both teams, to say the least.

Don't look past anyone...I hope we learned that.

Take care of business against USF.

WCC crown was lost on Thursday. SMC will not have stupid losses, and I think the only one they have a chance to lose is in Spokane.

Given today's performance by SMC, who is to say that they don't get their balloon burst a little?

If we beat them in Spokane, both teams will have one loss as of Thursday night. They have to play at Portland, SCU, USF and face GU/Portland again at home. I still believe that a team with only 2 WCC losses will win the conference.

I can totally see SMC Losing @ Portland. The Gaels are really thin in the "bigs" department, and with Sikma, Knudsen and Hannibal, the Pilots have superior and can pound it inside and then kick it out to the sharp shooters
