SAN BRUNO, Calif. -- Entering the final week of the regular season, two teams (Gonzaga and Pepperdine) know their seed for the 2013 West Coast Conference Basketball Championship, with seven to be decided this week. Gonzaga clinched the outright WCC title last Saturday with a win at BYU and will be the No. 1 seed, while Pepperdine will be the No. 9 seed.

  • Gonzaga clinched the West Coast Conference regular season title outright last Saturday with a 66-55 win at BYU. The Bulldogs will be the No. 1 seed at the 2013 WCC Basketball Championships, which take place March 6th to the 11th in Las Vegas, Nev.

  • There are two known seeds for the WCC tournament that starts next week. Seven others will be decided this week, with a few tiebreaking scenarios that remain. To break those ties, the WCC looks at: (1) head-to-head results, (2) results vs. others teams in descending order of finish, and (3) RPI. In the case of multiple ties, the one which can be resolved via the earliest tie-breaking step is broken first, beginning with the lower tie. If more than two teams are tied, the composite record of all teams within the tie is used for steps 1 & 2.

  • Loyola Marymount redshirt-senior Alex Cowling is 20 points shy of breaking the WCC all-time scoring mark. LMU hosts BYU Thursday at 7 pm PST and they travel to San Francisco for a 2pm contest Saturday afternoon.

  • The popular internet talk show WCC Live airs every Wednesday at 8 p.m. PST. This week's guest will be Loyola Marymount redshirt-senior Alex Cowling, who is 20 points shy of tying the WCC career scoring mark.

  • The West Coast Conference will feature its women's basketball coaches and student-athletes with weekly Google+ Hangouts throughout WCC play in 2013. The regular season finale will feature the University of San Diego next Tuesday at 2pm PST.

  • BYU point guard Haley Steed leads the NCAA with 7.4 assists per contest this season. Gonzaga senior Taelor Karr is up to fifth in the country with a 46.3 three-point field goal percentage.
