WCC QUICK HITS
Through November 26, WCC teams boast a .647 winning percentage (33-18) vs. non-conference foes. See the attached notes for the breakdown.
For the second time in its 60-year history of men's basketball (2008), the West Coast Conference had three teams participating in the NCAA Tournament (BYU, Gonzaga, Saint Mary's). In 2012, the WCC also registered five postseason teams for the second straight year (LMU, USF).
Only five Division I teams have won at least 25 games in each of the last five seasons. Three of those teams (BYU, Gonzaga, Saint Mary's) call the WCC home. The other two: Duke, Kansas.
Three WCC players have been named to the Wooden Award Preseason Top 50: Gonzaga F Elias Harris, BYU F Brandon Davies, and Saint Mary's G Matthew Dellavedova all made the initial cut.
Three WCC players have also been named to the Naismith Trophy list: Gonzaga F Elias Harris, Gonzaga G Kevin Pangos, and Saint Mary's G Matthew Dellavedova are all on the initial watch list for the award, handed out in April.
Gonzaga senior Elias Harris is the West Coast Conference Player of the Week. The MVP of the Old Spice Classic averaged 18.3 points and over seven rebounds per game in lifting the Zags to the tournament title for the second time (2008).
