SAN BRUNO, Calif. – The race for the West Coast Conference regular season championship may come to an end Thursday night in Provo when league-leaders BYU (14-1) host second-place San Diego (11-4) in a game that airs live on BYUtv at 6 p.m. PT. With three games remaining and a three-game lead in the standings, BYU can claim its first ever WCC regular season title with a victory against the Toreros, a team that claimed a 78-65 win in the first week of the conference season to give BYU its lone league blemish.
No matter the final score in Provo Thursday night, the 2015-16 WCC season is turning out to be one of the most exciting in history with four teams within one game of each other for the No. 2 seed and its subsequent first day bye at the upcoming WCC Tournament. San Diego, Santa Clara (10-4) and Saint Mary’s (10-4) all have four losses with Gonzaga (9-5) one game behind. The Gaels and Bulldogs also face each other Thursday night in a game that will be live on TheW.tv.
