    Default WCC Games for Week "4"

    Here are the current standings and this week's games in the WCC:

    On Thursday's slate, can SMC stop their 2 game slide at home against San Diego? Can Portland extend their 1 game winning streak against San Francisco in the city by the bay? Can Gonzaga extend their 14 game winning streak against SCU who are on a 2 game losing streak. Can Pacific maintain their 1/2 game lead over BYU or will BYU extend their 1 game winning streak and leap frog the tigers in the standings?

    On Saturday's slate BYU and SMC fight in Moraga to maintain their position near the top of the standings. Portland and SCU entered the week with the same record. Their game in Santa Clara will go a ways to who will be at the top of the mid-pack teams. San Diego travels to Pacific and will try to right the ship while Pacific wants to stay in 2nd place and the double bye come WCC tournament time. San Francisco will try to get a game in the win column while bring GU back to the pack.

    WEST COAST CONFERENCE BASKETBALL QUICK HITS

    - Gonzaga is ranked No. 16 in the AP and improves to No. 13 in the USA Today Coaches Polls this week.
    - Gonzaga comes in as a 3-seed in the latest ESPN Bracketology by Charlie Creme (Jan. 13). The Zags are the only non-Power 5 team to earn a coveted 1-4 seed, a distinction that comes with home court advantage in the opening rounds.
    - Gonzaga currently ranks second in the nation in percent attendance capacity and 12th nationally in overall average attendance. The Zags average 93.31 percent capacity; that’s an average of 5,598 fans that fill McCarthey Athletic Center every game. The Zags are the only non-Power 5 team (excluding UConn) to crack the national Top 15 in attendance. The team has posted two sellouts so far this season.
    - The Zags enter the week on an 14-game winning streak, the second-longest active streak in the country. Additionally, Gonzaga has won its last 8 road/neutral site games, one of just three teams in the country (UConn, Loyola Chicago) to win its last eight games away from home.
    - Santa Clara senior guard Tia Hay ranks No. 2 in the NCAA in free throw percentage at .944. She only sits behind Alexis Brown of Georgia Southern (.972).
    - Two WCC student-athletes rank among the top 3-point shooters in the country in Gonzaga’s Katie Campbell and SMC’s Taycee Wedin. Campbell ranks 4th in 3pt % (.481) while Wedin ranks 12th (.452).
    - BYU junior Sara Hamson is No. 2 on the active Division I blocks per game career list with a 3.58 blocks per game average in her career. She also sits No. 5 on the active Division I total career blocks list at 258. Hamson is the only non-senior to crack the Top 5 of the active career total blocks list.
    - Portland won 57-48 at BYU on Jan. 4, snapping a 20-game winless streak in the series against the Cougars dating back to 1994. The Pilots are led by first-year head coach Michael Meek, who comes to Portland after a highly successful nine-year run at George Fox University where he led the Bruins to eight NCAA Tournament appearances and NCAA Division III national championship game appearances in 2012 and 2015.
    - Pacific junior Valerie Higgins had a near-triple-double in an 84-61 win at USF (12/30) with 29 points, 10 rebounds and 9 steals. Her nine thefts rank No. 7 in the NCAA this season, two shy of the NCAA single-game high off 11. Higgins is also the lone WCC student-athlete to earn two WCC Player of the Week nods this year.
    - Gonzaga junior Jenn Wirth was named the WCC Player of the Week >> FULL RELEASE

    I hope St. Mary's enjoyed their brief stay at the top of the standings. They are on their way to losing their 3rd straight, this time to San Diego. Down 20. USD is not good, what does that make SMC?

    Pacific-BYU and Portland-USF are close games at the half.

    Default WCC Games for Week "4"

    BYU just won over Pacific in OT 76-66.

    Hansen hung on with four fouls. Pacific coach post game interview seems to hint that their strategy of trying to take it to Hansen in the paint to get her to foul out might’ve backfired on them because of her shot blocks?

    I caught most of the overtime.

    Pacific had two (2) strategies neither of which worked. At the beginning of the overtime, the Tigers kept taking it to the hoop only to get stuffed by Hanson or Moody. The last half of the OT, Pacific kept chucking up three(s) and could not hit the water from the beach.

    Now if we can get SMC to wake up and take down the cougars and the lady zags take care of business, GU will be up 3 games with two games to go in the first half of the conference season.
