SAN DIEGO, Calif. - For the second time in two seasons - and for the second time in the 16-year history of the West Coast Conference men's basketball tournament - the top two seeds will battle for the title and with it the automatic berth into the NCAA Tournament.

Top-seed Pepperdine University downed No. 6 Saint Mary's College 68-47, and No. 2 Gonzaga University defeated No. 5 University of San Diego 87-79 in Sunday's semifinals at the Jenny Craig Pavilion on the USD campus.

Gonzaga and Pepperdine will meet at 9 p.m. Monday on ESPN. The two teams met in 2000 at Santa Clara University, the top-seeded Bulldogs prevailing over Pepperdine 69-65 in overtime.
