The #17 Saint Mary’s Gaels will meet with the #1 Gonzaga Bulldogs in a West Coast Conference clash in Orleans Arena, NV, on Tuesday, March 8, 2022, at 9:00 PM ET.

The Gaels advanced to 25-6 overall and 12-3 in the WCC during the regular season, placing them second in the conference. They were ranked 19th in the NET rankings on Monday night, ensuring a respectable seed in March Madness.

The Gaels failed a jumper in the waning seconds of the game, allowing the Broncos a chance to grab the lead. With three seconds remaining, Logan Johnson blocked a shot by Jalen Williams and made two free throws. Williams’ effort to equalize the game was thwarted by the Gaels, who went on to win the game.

 

Saint Mary’s shot 49.1% from the field, including six of 13 from the three-point range, and won the rebounding battle 38-35. Tommy Kuhse led in scoring with 27 points, had five rebounds, and four dimes.

Saint Mary’s Gaels vs Gonzaga Bulldogs Predictions 3/8/2022

 

In their semifinal matchup Monday night, Gonzaga crushed San Francisco early but let the Dons claw their way back into the match before putting the contest away.

 

The Bulldogs moved to 25-3 overall and 13-1 in the WCC, placing them in first place in the league. The squad is ranked first in the country by the NET, and the NCAA Tournament’s initial bracket revealed the team as the top overall seed.

 

Gonzaga surged out to a 9-0 lead less than three minutes into the match against San Francisco and led by 20 at halftime.

 

The Bulldogs became complacent in the second half, enabling the Dons to close to within eight points with 1:31 remaining before winning.

 

Gonzaga made 58.2 percent of their shots from the field, including three of thirteen from three-point range, and forced 13 turnovers, thanks in part to San Francisco’s 38.1 percent shooting. Drew Timme scored 22 points to lead the Bulldogs to victory.

 

This season, the Bulldogs are lighting up the scoreboards, averaging 88.3 points per game, which is the best in the country. Gonzaga averages 42.3 rebounds per game and 18.3 assists per match this season.

 

  • The University of Gonzaga Bulldogs is 1-4 ATS in their previous 5 matches.
  • Gonzaga is 18-1 SU in their last 19 matches.
  • The Bulldogs are 19-1 SU in their last 20 matches in the West Coast Conference.

#17 Saint Mary’s Gaels vs #1 Gonzaga Bulldogs. The NCAAB pick for this game is the #1 Gonzaga Bulldogs. Saint Mary’s had to hold on for dear life to get here, but they were able to hold off Santa Clara.

 

If the Gaels are going to beat the #1 team in the country, they can’t afford to have lapses as they had in the closing 10 minutes of the game. Last week, we watched Saint Mary’s put up a strong display in their win over the Bulldogs, although that match was played in Moraga.

 

It’s challenging to beat the Bulldogs on your court, doing it in Spokane or on a neutral court is much harder. Gonzaga dominated the second half with a comfortable lead against the Dons.

 

The Bulldogs take care of business and avenge their defeat from last week to win the WCC Tournament. The #1 Gonzaga Bulldogs will win to a predicted score of 77-68.
