LAS VEGAS – Drew Timme scored 18 points and became Gonzaga’s all-time leading scorer as he led No. 9 Bulldogs against No. 16 Saint Mary’s 77-51 on Tuesday night in the West Coast Conference Tournament championship game.

The Zags (28–5) continued their WCC dominance with their fourth straight tournament championship and 10th in 11 years, with Saint Mary’s in 2019 being the only exception. Gonzaga has won 21 tournament titles overall.

Saint Mary’s (26-7) was actually the No. 1 seed in the tournament and the teams split the regular season series. The Gaels were the last team to defeat Gonzaga, who goes on a nine-game winning streak in the NCAA Tournament, which includes beating Saint Mary’s in the regular season finale.

Both teams will find out their seedings and destinations on Sunday.

Gonzaga made 58% of his shots, while holding Saint Mary’s on 33% of his shots. The Zags led by as many as 37 points and never lost.

Timme was efficient in hitting 8 of 10 shots to take four Bulldogs to double figures. Malachi Smith scored 14 points, Nolan Hickman 12 points and Julian Strawther 10. Anton Watson had 10 rebounds.

Timme’s short jump with 10:18 left put him in first place alone as the leading scorer in Saint Mary’s history. He was just five points short of breaking the mark, and his 18 points in the game gave him 2,210 for his career. Frank Burgess held the previous record of 2,196 from 1958-61.
