#1 Gonzaga (25-0, 13-0 WCC) puts it's undefeated season on the line tonight at #20 St. Mary's (22-2, 12-1).
The Bulldogs already own a 79-56 victory over the Gaels, beating them at home back on Jan. 14. St. Mary's other loss this season was to Texas-Arlington back on Dec. 8.
G Nigel Williams-Goss leads Gonzaga in points, rebounds, assists and steals.
The Gaels rely largely on their nationally second ranked defense (54.6 ppg). 6'11" C Jock Landale averages 16.7 ppg and 9.5 rpg for St. Mary's.
The home crowd for this nationally televised game may keep St. Mary's in this one for a while, but ultimately the Bulldogs are the superior team and coach Mark Few will have them prepared for the Gaels tough defense.
