West Coast Conference Tournament seeding set, USF Dons men’s and women’s basketball headed to Vegas

The brackets are now completely set for the West Coast Conference men’s and women’s basketball tournaments.

Thanks to a three-game losing streak to end the season, the University of San Francisco men’s team (21-9, 9-7 in WCC) will be seeded fourth, and will play next Saturday at 7 p.m. against the winner of game three, which will pit No. 5-seed Loyola Marymount against the winner of No. 8-seed Pepperdine and No. 9-seed Pacific.

The Dons’ game will be televised on ESPN2, with Dave Feldman and Sean Farnham on the ball.

The winner of that game will play No. 1 seed Gonzaga in the first men’s semifinal, set for 6 p.m. on Monday, March 11, televised on either ESPN or ESPN2.

The women, seeded No. 9 and sitting at 6-23 overall and 2-16 in conference play, will play at noon on Thursday in the tournament’s first game against No. 8-seed Portland. The winner of that game will play No. 5-seed Loyola Marymount on Friday, March 8, at noon.
