Santa Clara Broncos 2011-12 Basketball Schedule: ESPNU 76 Classic Highlights Non-Conference Schedule

The Santa Clara Broncos kickoff their 2011-2012 regular season schedule Friday evening as they host UC Merced. The Broncos are coming off a successful 2010-11 campaign that saw them finish 24-14 and defeat Iona on the road to claim the CollegeInsider.com Postseason Tournament title. The Broncos return preseason All-WCC player Kevin Foster who led the West Coast Conference in scoring a season ago with 19.4 points per game.

The Broncos 2011-12 schedule features a challenging mix of conference and non-conference opponents. The WCC is always a challenge, but it is made even more so this season with the addition of Brigham Young University. Santa Clara will look to bull its way into the upper echelon of the conference, which currently features BYU, Gonzaga and Saint Mary's.

Santa Clara's non-conference schedule includes a trip to Anaheim to compete in the ESPNU 76 Classic. The Broncos open against Mountain West favorite New Mexico and then face either Oklahoma or Washington State. They will play a third game from there against one of Villanova, UC Riverside, St. Louis or Boston College. The 76 Classic should get them fully prepared for their January 5 WCC opener at Portland.

Saint Mary's Gaels 2011-12 Basketball Schedule: Baylor Awaits In Non-conference Play

The Saint Mary's Gaels open their 2011-12 season Friday evening as they host Fresno Pacific. The Gaels will being the post-Mickey McConnell era as they return their other four starters. Forward Rob Jones and guard Matthew Dellavedova are their highest profile players this season and will look to get the Gaels back into the NCAA tournament.

The Gaels upcoming schedule features some tough matchups leading up to what will be a challenging West Coast Conference schedule. The addition of BYU adds to the degree of difficulty, but also helps raise the profile of an already solid WCC.

The biggest game on SMC's non-conference schedule is a neutral site contest with the preseason No. 12 Baylor Bears. Saint Mary's will be taking part in the Continental Tire Las Vegas Classic, which includes matchups with Baylor and the Missouri State Bears. Baylor finished last season 18-13 while Missouri State put together a 26-9 season that saw them advance to the second round of the NIT.

Saint Mary's starts conference play on December 29, hosting the BYU Cougars in BYU's first WCC contest. The game will be broadcast on ESPN2 in what will be a modest bit of history. Later in the season, Saint Mary's will take part in the 2012 Sears Bracketbuster Saturday.

2011-12 USF Dons Basketball: Projected Starters

The San Francisco Dons open their 2011-2012 regular season Friday evening against the North Dakota State Bison. The Dons are coming off a 19-15 season that featured an appearance in the CollegeInsider.com Postseason Tournament. The Dons enter this new season hoping to break into the upper echelon of the West Coast Conference. Gonzaga, Saint Mary's and newcomer BYU are projected to claim the top three spots, but USF is a strong dark horse to consider.

The Dons could make some noise this season thanks to the return of much of their roster, including all five starters from last season. The Dons lose Moustapha Diarra off the bench, but return a growing veteran class of players. Their starting lineup will feature two seniors, two juniors and a sophomore. The Dons starting lineup projects as follows:

G - Michael Williams, Jr
G - Rashad Green, Sr
G - Cody Doolin, So
F - Perris Blackwell, Jr
F - Angelo Caloiaro, Sr

Williams finished 2010-11 as the fourth leading scorer in the WCC and seventh in field goal percentage. Green and Doolin look to be the primary table-setters for the Dons as they combined for 6.5 assists per game, with Doolin finishing seventh in the conference in assists. Perris Blackwell finished fourth in the conference in rebounds and second in field goal percentage.

The Dons lose some bench depth with Diarra and Marko Petrovic departing. However, they add a solid freshman in guard Chris Adams. The big guard averaged 18.7 points and 3.9 rebounds as a senior at Damien High School in Covina, CA.

San Francisco Dons 2011-12 Basketball Schedule: Hilltop Challenge Opens Season

The University of San Francisco Dons kick off their 2011-12 schedule Friday night as they face the North Dakota State Bison in the second annual Hilltop Challenge. The Dons host the round-robin event that features North Dakota State, the Northern Arizona Lumberjacks and the Louisiana-Lafayette Ragin' Cajuns. After Friday's contest, USF will face Northern Arizona on Saturday and Louisiana-Lafayette on Sunday.

The Dons were 2-1 in last year's first annual Hilltop Challenge, losing their opener to Colorado State before bouncing back to defeat Hampton and Dominican. This season they will face North Dakota State and ULL for the first time, while facing Northern Arizona for the fourth time. USF is 1-2 all time against NAU.

After the Hilltop Challenge, the Dons head off to Alaska for the Carrs/Safeway Great Alaska Shootout. The 36th Annual Shootout takes place November 23 through 26. USF opens against Dartmouth and then pending that result faces the winner or loser of Murray State and host Alaska-Anchorage. The other participants include Central Michigan, New Mexico State, UC-Irvine and Southern Mississippi. The Dons will face one of those remaining four teams in the final game.

The Dons then have a fairly low key December before opening West Coast Conference play on Thursday, December 26 against Pepperdine. At that point, it is indeed Game On in what will be one of the strongest seasons in recent memory for the WCC.

Here is a rundown of the San Francisco Dons 2011-2012 college basketball schedule:

National Signing Day: San Francisco Basketball Lands Four Recruits

Wednesday was the start of the early signing period for college basketball teams to announce signings of high school and junior college recruits. The University of San Francisco announced the signing of four seniors for their 2012-2013 freshman class. The incoming class will include guard Joe Edmonds (Oklahoma City, OK), forward Matt Christiansen (Oklahoma City, OK), guard Tim Derksen (Tucson, AZ) and forward Frank Rogers (Salinas, CA).

San Francisco enters the 2011-12 season with three seniors that will need to be replaced. Those seniors include Rashad Green, Angelo Caloiaro and Jay Wey. Green and Caloiaro are two of the Dons top three scorers and rebounders returning from last season. Green averaged 12.5 points and 5.8 rebounds, while Caloiaro averaged 9.9 points and 7.3 rebounds.

Matt Christiansen and Joe Edmonds are currently teammates at Bishop McGuinness in Oklahoma City. Christiansen is ranked by ESPN as 45th nationally at his position and is coming off a 2010-11 campaign in which he averaged 15.0 points, 12.0 rebounds and 4.0 blocks per game. The Dons were second in rebounds per game last season, but were ranked last in blocks per game. Christiansen brings solid size to the Dons interior defense.

Edmonds is ranked 103rd nationally for his position by ESPN and will look to become a table-setter for the Dons. In 2010, Edmonds averaged 14.0 points, 8.0 rebounds and 5.0 assists per game. At 6-5, Edmonds will bring some serious size to the guard position.

Tim Derksen comes in from Amphitheater HS in Tuscon, Arizona where this past season he averaged 17.0 points, 11.0 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 2.0 steals per game. He ranks 61st nationally and his team has never lost at home since he arrived on campus. The Dons are still a young team learning how to win in a conference dominated by Gonzaga and Saint Mary's. Winning at any level breeds confidence and Derksen's success to date likely makes him a confident guard.

The final signing is junior college forward Frank Rogers from Cabrillo College. Rogers stands 6-8 and averaged 14.0 points, 14.0 rebounds and 4.0 blocks per game as a prep senior before enrolling at Cabrillo College for the 2011-12 basketball season.

The Dons are coming off a strong 2010-11 season and will look to build on the momentum this year. However, long term success will come with solid recruiting year in and year out. Next year's class of freshman could bring a solid infusion of size and talent to build on moving forward. If BYU sticks around the WCC, most will view the WCC as a three-team race. However, with some time and patience, Rex Walters and the Dons could jump into the thick of things.

Coach Walters provided some comments on each of the incoming players:

On Joe Edmonds: "Joe is smart and tough with good feel for the game to go along with a nice stroke. Joe does a lot of things well and is all about helping his team find a way to get things done. He's a great student and young man that people will enjoy following and supporting."

On Matt Christiansen: "Matt brings size, skill and toughness that our team will need next year. He has a nose for the ball and a nice skill set in the low and high post. Our fans will really enjoy watching him work and get after it as well as get to know a very well spoken and funny young man."

On Tim Derksen: "Tim just finds a lot of ways to impact the game. All he has done is win on both the high school level and the AAU circuit. He will be able to play multiple positions for us and is that pass, handle, shoot kid that has a nose for the ball. Tim is also a very good student and will be fun to coach."

On Frank Rogers: "I have had a lot of fun watching Frank develop and become a player. He doesn't know how good he can be. He rebounds the ball and has a defensive presence inside along with good hands and touch around the rim and on the perimeter. He is getting great coaching this year at the Junior College level."

Mid-Major Top 25 Poll: Gonzaga, BYU, Saint Mary's, Santa Clara, San Francisco Lead WCC Charge

The start of the 2011-12 college basketball season means it is once again time to start figuring out which mid-major squads will play Cinderella when March rolls around. Butler has been the biggest Cinderella in recent memory, but there are a lot of solid teams coming out of mid-major conferences.

The West Coast Conference could put forth its claim as the best mid-major in all the land and make a solid argument in its favor. The release of the CollegeInsider.com Mid-Major Top 25 only serves to verify the impressive nature of the WCC. Gonzaga sits on top garnering 21 first place votes, BYU is ninth with one first place vote, Saint Mary's sits at No. 11 and Santa Clara is No. 25. The San Francisco Dons are sixth in "getting votes" with 45 votes. The four schools in the top 25 equals that of the Colonial Athletic Association, which is also in the "best mid-major" argument.

Santa Clara and San Francisco both took part in last season's CollegeInsider.com Postseason Tournament. Santa Clara took home the championship, while San Francisco made it to the quarterfinals before losing to the Broncos. Both schools are dark horses in the WCC and will look to take a step up from the CIT this season.

2011-12 Santa Clara Broncos TV Schedule: BYU, Gonzaga, ESPNU 76 Classic Highlight Schedule

The Santa Clara Broncos enter the 2011-2012 college basketball season as a bit of a dark horse behind Gonzaga, BYU and Saint Mary's. As those three schools dominate the press, Santa Clara and San Francisco find themselves considered a notch below in the second tier of WCC teams. In reality, both Santa Clara and San Francisco could surprise any of the top three teams in the conference and create some craziness when the conference tournament gets going.

The West Coast Conference has a solid television deal in place with ESPN that gets its many talented squads on national television a decent amount. The addition of BYU could mean even more national exposure for the conference, particularly with the chance for three teams to get NCAA tournament berths.

The conference will have 21 games showcased on ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPNU, including the quarterfinals, semifinals and championship game of the WCC conference tournament. Santa Clara will make at least seven appearances on the ESPN family of networks in 2011-12, with five of the games coming as part of the WCC's package of games.

Santa Clara will make a non-conference appearance on ESPNU during the 76 Classic in Anaheim. Their opening round game with New Mexico will air on ESPNU. If they win, they face the winner of Oklahoma and Washington State on ESPN2. If they lose, they face the loser of OU-WSU on ESPNU. Depending on wins and losses, they could appear on an ESPN channel as many as three times during the tournament.

Santa Clara's national television schedule includes (all times pacific and subject to change):

Thursday, November 24
New Mexico vs. Santa Clara, 6:00 p.m. (ESPNU - 76 Classic, Anaheim)

Saturday, January 14

2011-12 San Francisco Dons TV Schedule: BYU, Great Alaska Shootout Highlight Schedule

The San Francisco Dons head into the 2011-2012 college basketball season as a dark horse in the West Coast Conference behind the monster favorites in Gonzaga, BYU and Saint Mary's. Those three are getting all the publicity, but an overlooked USF squad could be incredibly dangerous by the time the WCC tournament rolls around. The Dons return their entire starting lineup from a squad that went 19-15 last season and pulled off an overtime upset of Gonzaga.

The West Coast Conference has a solid television deal in place with ESPN that gets the likes of Saint Mary's, Gonzaga, San Francisco and other folks on national television a decent amount. The addition of BYU could mean even more national exposure for the conference, particularly with the chance for three teams to get NCAA tournament berths.

The conference will have 21 games showcased on ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPNU, including the quarterfinals, semifinals and championship game of the WCC conference tournament. San Francisco will make three WCC appearances on ESPNU in 2011-12, and will also add three games on Fox College Sports Pacific and one on BYUtv. San Francisco's inclusion in the Great Alaska Shootout at the end of Alaska has brought them some of that additional television coverage.

San Francisco's national television schedule includes (all times pacific and subject to change):

Saturday, November 19

San Francisco at Seattle, 3:00 p.m. (FCS Pacific)

Saturday, November 23

2011-12 Saint Mary's TV Schedule: All Four BYU, Gonzaga Contests Highlight ESPN Schedule

The Saint Mary's Gaels enter the 2011-2012 college basketball season considered by many to be the number three team in the West Coast Conference behind perennial favorite Gonzaga and newcomer heavyweight Brigham Young University. They have developed a higher profile in recent years courtesy of some big tournament wins and solid regular season performances.

The West Coast Conference has a solid television deal in place with ESPN that gets the likes of Saint Mary's, Gonzaga, San Francisco and other folks on national television a decent amount. The addition of BYU could mean even more national exposure for the conference, particularly with the chance for three teams to get NCAA tournament berths.

The conference will have 21 games showcased on ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPNU, including the quarterfinals, semifinals and championship game of the WCC conference tournament. SMC will make seven appearances on the ESPN family of networks in 2011-12, with six of the games coming as part of the WCC's package of games. The game against Northern Iowa is part of ESPN's College Hoops Tip-Off Marathon. SMC could find itself in an eighth nationally televised game as part of the 2012 Sears Bracketbuster Saturday. Their opponent and game time is yet to be determined.

SMC's national television schedule includes (all times pacific and subject to change):

Monday, November 14

WCC Preseason Poll: Gonzaga, Saint Mary's, BYU Basketball Lead The Way

The 2011 college basketball season is just about set to get underway, which means conferences have released their various preseason honors. The West Coast Conference joined in this past week as they released their preseason standings predictions and all-conference team. The Gonzaga Bulldogs were given seven first place votes and projected to finish first overall. The Saint Mary's Gaels received one first place vote and came in second in the rankings. New WCC entrant Brigham Young University received the other first place vote and came in third.

While Gonzaga, SMC and BYU are the expected favorites in the WCC, the next couple spots features some interesting dark horses that could make things at least a little uncomfortable for the conference favorites. The San Francisco Dons and Santa Clara Broncos both bring something to the table that makes them realistic darkhorses in the WCC.

The San Francisco Dons return their entire starting five, as well as their top four scorers and rebounders. Of their 2010-2011 squad, the only significant loss is Moustapha Diarra, who was seventh on the team in minutes. Amidst all these returning players, only two are seniors (Rashad Green and Angelo Caloiaro). The team has a solid mix of youth and veteran experience and could be a surprise this season.

The Santa Clara Broncos enter the 2011-2012 season having won the CollegeInsider.com Basketball Tournament last season. They will lose some significant minutes from Ben Dowdell, Troy Payne and Robert Smith, but they return the conference's leading scorer in Kevin Foster who averaged 20.2 points per game as only a sophomore. When you have a big scorer, it provides plenty of opportunities to score some upsets.

Here is the WCC's preseason poll, as well as the preseason all-conference team:
