The Saint Mary’s Gaels and Gonzaga Bulldogs face off on Monday in a college basketball showdown at Orleans Arena. This is the semifinals of the West Coast Conference. 

These two teams faced off earlier this season and it was Gonzaga that came away with an 87-65 victory.

The Saint Mary’s Gaels come into this game with a 14-8 record overall and coming into this game they have won three of their last four games. In the last game against Loyola Marymount. The offense locked down giving up 47 points only and that led to the victory. Saint Mary’s on the season is averaging 64.5 points per game while their defense is giving up 61.6 points per game. Guard Logan Johnson has been the best player for Saint Mary’s averaging 13.4 points while shooting 47.5 percent from the field but only 24 percent from behind the three point line.

On the other side of this matchup is the Gonzaga Bulldogs who sit with a 24-0 record overall but they have failed to cover the spread in their last two games. In the last game against Loyola Marymount, they were able to win 86-69. Gonzaga on the season is averaging 92.9 points per game while their defense is giving up 69.3 points per game. Gonzaga is shooting 55.3 percent from the field and 36.1 percent from behind the three point line. Forward Corey Kispert has been the best player for Gonzaga this season averaging 19.5 points while shooting 55.6 percent from the field and 46.3 percent from behind the three point line. 

The over is 10-1 in Gonzaga’s last 11 neutral site games. The over is 37-14 in Gonzaga’s last 51 games overall. Saint Mary’s is 7-19 against the spread in the last 26 meetings played between Saint Mary’s and Gonzaga. 

Gonzaga is going to run up the score in this game and I expect Saint Mary’s offense is going to struggle to score again in this game. The Bulldogs are going to make this game a blowout and Gonzaga will cover the spread.
