SAN BRUNO, Calif. -- The West Coast Conference opens the fourth week of the league schedule starting Thursday, January 16, 2014. The third week of the season featured a couple notable upsets as Gonzaga fell at Portland (82-73), snapping a 20-game winning streak against the Pilots and a last second 3-pointer lifted Santa Clara to a win at longtime rival Saint Mary's (57-55). No. 24 Gonzaga maintains its spot on the top of the league standings at 4-1, followed by Pepperdine and San Francisco at 4-2 in league play. After three weeks of conference action in the books, the WCC is one of just two Division I conferences with every member institution boasting a winning record (Big East). The Conference continues to stake its reputation as one of the nation's elite offensive conferences. See below for more notes on the WCC's strengths.
