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.
