2015 West Coast Conference Tournament Predictions
If those are not good enough reasons to get you to follow the WCC Tournament this week, I don't know what is. Here are my predictions.
All games held at Orleans Arena in Paradise, NV
First Round - Friday, March 6th
8 San Francisco vs. 9 Pacific - BYUtv, 9:00
Pick: San Francisco
7 Santa Clara vs. 10 Loyola Marymount - BYUtv, 11:00
Pick: Santa Clara
Quarterfinals - Saturday, March 7th
1 Gonzaga vs. 8 San Francisco - ESPN2, 9:00
4 Pepperdine vs. 5 San Diego - TWCSN/CSN California/Root Sports NW/BYUtv, 5:00
Pick: San Diego
2 BYU vs. 7 Santa Clara - ESPN2, 11:00
3 St. Mary's vs. 6 Portland - TWCSN/CSN California/Root Sports NW/BYUtv, 3:00
Pick: St. Mary's
Semifinals - Monday, March 9th
1 Gonzaga vs. 5 San Diego - ESPN, 9:00
2 BYU vs. 3 St. Mary's - ESPN2, 9:30
The Gaels would have to show even more defensively than they already do to slow down a powerful BYU offense and I don't think that will happen.
Championship - Tuesday, March 10th
1 Gonzaga vs. 2 BYU - ESPN, 9:00
If anybody is going to give the Zags a run for their money, BYU really has the best chance. But I think that Gonzaga is gaming for revenge and will get a big win to win the conference.
