The Gonzaga Bulldogs and Saint Mary’s Gaels face off on Tuesday in a college basketball showdown in the WCC Tournament at the Orleans Arena. When these two teams faced off on February 26th it was Saint Mary’s that won 67-57.
At halftime, Saint Mary’s was up 36-21 and they held on in the second half for the victory. Saint Mary’s used a balanced attack with four different players scoring at least 10 points. Rasir Bolton was the top player for Gonzaga scoring 16 points.
Gonzaga sits with a 25-3 record overall and on a neutral court they have gone 4-2. On Monday, Gonzaga faced off with San Francisco and although they weren’t exactly dominant they were able to win 81-71. The offense had another strong showing, but they need to find a way to have more success with the defense in this game. Gonzaga is averaging 88.3 points while their defense is giving up 65 points per game. Forward Drew Timme has been the top player for Gonzaga averaging 17.6 points while shooting 58.3 percent from the field and 28 percent from behind the three point line. Chet Holmgren is also having a big season averaging 14.4 points while shooting 61.6 percent from the field.
On the other side of this matchup is the Saint Mary’s Gaels who sit with a 25-6 record overall and they have won five games in a row. On Monday, Saint Mary almost blew their game late against Santa Clara but they held on for the three point victory. Saint Mary’s is averaging 69.6 points while their defense is giving up 59.4 points per game. Matthias Tass has been the top player for Saint Mary’s averaging 12.5 points while shooting 54.4 percent from the field. There are four different players for the Gaels that are averaging at least 10 points per game.
The Gaels are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 neutral site games and 10-4-1 ATS in their last 15 games overall. The Bulldogs are 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 games as a favorite and 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The over is 5-2 in Gaels last 7 Tuesday games. The under is 7-1 in Bulldogs last 8 overall.
Saint Mary’s won their last game against Gonzaga and they are going to find success again in this game. Gonzaga’s defense looked bad on Monday, and they are going to struggle again in this game to slow down the Gaels. I am not sure Saint Mary’s will win this game outright, but they are going to cover the spread.
