The 2019 West Coast Conference Tournament will take place March 7-12 at Orleans Arena in Las Vegas. Gonzaga will be the top seed, followed by a stalemate from Saint Mary’s, BYU and San Francisco.
The conference’s hopes of winning two NCAA Tournament bids likely hinge on a team other than Gonzaga winning the WCC crown. The Bulldogs have locked a berth off regardless of their performance in Las Vegas, but the Gaels, Cougars and Dons would likely need the automatic invite that comes with claiming the WCC tournament.

It seems unlikely, however, that Gonzaga won’t live up to his dominance in regular-season conference play. The Bulldogs have won every WCC game this year by a double-digit lead, a mark that includes victories at San Francisco, Saint Mary’s and BYU.
Gonzaga, led by Rui Hachimura, Brandon Clarke and Zach Norvell Jr., has won six consecutive WCC tournaments. BYU has never won it, and San Francisco hasn’t since 1998.
