SAN BRUNO, Calif. -- As November quickly draws to a close, WCC teams remain quite busy on the hardwood. No. 18/19 Gonzaga will take on a pair of BCS foes this week (Notre Dame, Illinois) while BYU faces Oregon. Meanwhile, both Loyola Marymount and Portland play No. 23 St. Louis.

WCC QUICK HITS

  • In the early going, West Coast Conference teams are 4-6 against teams from BCS conferences (conference-by-conference breakdown on page two). This week, Gonzaga hosts Notre Dame and visits Illinois, and BYU takes on Oregon in Salt Lake City.

  • Through Sunday's action, BYU (11th) and Saint Mary's (17th) rank in the top 20 nationally in field goal percentage. Santa Clara (8th) and Saint Mary's (17th) are top 20 in 3-point field goals per game.

  • Only eight Division I teams have won at least 25 games in each of the last four seasons. Three of those teams (BYU, Gonzaga, Saint Mary's) call the West Coast Conference home.

  • Santa Clara's Evan Roquemore is the WCC Player of the Week for November 28. Roquemore set a new 76 Classic tournament record with 24 assists over three games.
