What you need to know about Saint Mary’s

Saint Mary’s strolled past the San Diego Toreros with points to spare on Thursday, taking the contest 60-46. Four players on Saint Mary’s scored in the double digits: guard Logan Johnson (14), forward Kyle Bowen (12), guard Tommy Kuhse (10) and forward Matthias Tass (10).

Saint Mary’s held San Diego to just 36.5 percent shooting and 2-for-13 from the 3-point line. It was the 10th time this season the Gaels have held an opponent to less than 40 percent from the floor. But they’ll be hard-pressed to hold Gonzaga below that number, as the Bulldogs lead the nation by shooting 53.0 percent from the field.

What you need to know about Gonzaga

Meanwhile, Gonzaga beat the San Francisco Dons on the road Thursday, 89-73. It was another big night for the Bulldogs’ center Chet Holmgren, who posted a double-double on 21 points and 15 rebounds along with six blocks. The true freshman has made himself into a national player of the year candidate by becoming a dominant rebounder and inside-outside scoring big man, in addition to blocking shots at a ridiculous (3.5 bpg) rate.

A pair of numbers to keep in mind before tip-off: The Gaels enter the matchup with only 59.5 points allowed per game on average, good for ninth-best in college basketball. But Gonzaga comes into the matchup boasting the most points per game in college basketball at 89.5. We’ll see which of these strengths — offense or defense — will win out.
