WCC Basketball Tournament Schedule: San Francisco awaits Winner Of Santa Clara-Portland

The San Francisco Dons wrapped up their 2011-12 regular season on Saturday with a tough loss to the Saint Mary's Gaels. USF was locked into the fifth seed in spite of the loss thanks to San Diego's loss to Gonzaga. USF claimed a huge upset win over Gonzaga last weekend, but was unable to build on it in a tough loss to the Gaels.

San Francisco now gets to wait for their second round opponent in the WCC tournament. USF will face the winner of Santa Clara-Portland, who square off on Wednesday. The winner of that matchup will advance to face San Francisco on Thursday, March 1. The Dons swept both series and will look to continue their strong play once the tournament gets going.

USF now sits only two wins away from a potential 20-win season. If USF can beat the winner of Santa Clara-Portland and then potentially spring an upset of Loyola Marymount, they could be looking at a possible NIT appearance. It will take some strong performances over the next week, but it remains a possibility.
