MORAGA, Calif. - Gonzaga University and the University of San Diego will meet in the West Coast Conference Tournament semifinal Sunday at 5:30 p.m. at Toso Pavilion on the Santa Clara University campus.
The second-seeded Bulldogs advanced with a 76-49 win over No. 7 Saint Mary's College, and third-seeded USD edged No. 6 seed University of Portland 56-52 on Saturday. Sunday's other semifinal will match No. 1 Pepperdine University, an 83-49 victor over No. 8 Loyola Marymount University, against No. 4 Santa Clara University, a 63-48 winner of No. 5 University of San Francisco.
