By Marc Lawrence, PaybookSports.com — No. 1 ranked Gonzaga, who had won 17 games in a row since it’s last defeat in early December, was one of seven Top-10 ranked teams to lose on Saturday when the Zags fell at Saint Mary’s, 67-57.
That was the most AP Top 10 teams to lose on the same day in the history of the poll.
The Gaels closed out the season 16-0 at home at the vastly improve West Coast Conference may land as many as four bids in this year’s NCAA Tournament.
Gonzaga All-American and national player of the year front-runner Drew Timme played terribly, shooting 2-for-10 from the floor – including 0-for-8 in the first half as the Bulldogs fell behind 36-21 – to finish with six points.
