The fifth and final day of the 2012 WCC Tournament will take place on Monday. There will be no games on Sunday due to religious services, as well as to give the final teams a day to recuperate before the big showdown. To the surprise of few, the championship game will come down to one last matchup between the two top seeds in the tournament.

The St. Mary's Gaels pulled off quite a feat when they claimed the regular-season WCC title. It marked the first time in over a decade that the Gonzaga Bulldogs did not claim at least a share of the top spot in the conferece at season's end. Now the Gaels and the Zags will face off one last time before the 2012 NCAA Tournament.
St. Mary's advanced to the final game by coming from behind to knock off the San Francisco Dons in the semifinals, while Gonzaga coasted to a relatively easy win over the BYU Cougars.
The championship game will tip off at 6:00 p.m. PT on Monday night and will be televised nationally on ESPN.
