  • Four West Coast Conference programs earned a spot in this week’s CollegeInsider.com Mid-Major Top-25 Poll and all cracked the top-10. Gonzaga remains in the top two for the third straight week, checking in at No. 2, followed by Saint Mary’s (4), San Diego (5) and BYU (9). Santa Clara and San Francisco are in the “Receiving Votes” category.
  • BYU senior All-American Lexi Rydalch ranks fifth among active Division I scoring leaders (1,994 points). Rydalch is in the top 10 in multiple active career offensive categories, including games (120/3rd), field goals (674/7th), field goal attempts (1,561/4th), free throws (475/3rd) and free throw attempts (617/2nd).
  • Rydalch ranks fourth in career WCC scoring (1,994) and is on pace to be the fourth WCC student-athlete to crack 2,000. The league’s all-time scoring leader is Loyola Marymount’s Alex Cowling (2008-13) with 2,219 points. Gonzaga All-American Courtney Vandersloot (2007-11) is third at 2,073 points.
  • San Francisco senior forward Taylor Proctor ranks 35th among active Division I scoring leaders (1,418 points). Proctor also ranks in the top-45 among active players in field goals (529/28th), field goal attempts (1,182/42nd), rebounds (750/26th) and double-doubles (21/34th).
  • Loyola Marymount senior guard Leslie Lopez-Wood ranks 12th among active Division I 3-point leaders (166), averaging 2.31 per game.
  • Since 2010 one West Coast Conference program has advanced to the Sweet-16, headlined by Gonzaga’s 2011 Elite Eight trip. The Bulldogs have made four Sweet-16 berths since 2010 while BYU won a pair of games in 2014.
