The Gonzaga Bulldogs still have a couple days before the suit up in the WCC Tournament, but in the meantime a lot of the lower seeds are knocking one another off. Two games on Thursday means there are two less teams alive in the tourney.
The duo of Angelo Caloiaro and Rashad Green scored 19 points each to lead the No. 5 San Francisco Dons to a decisive 87-66 win over the No. 8 Portland Pilots in second round action at Orleans Arena. Perris Blackwell added 15 points and Cole Dickerson grabbed 10 rebounds to help lift the Dons (19-12).
In the second game, Johnny Dee scored a career-high 30 points to help lead the No. 6 San Diego Toreros past No. 7 Pepperdine Waves 76-54. Dee went 9-of-14 from the floor and 6-of-9 from three-point range for San Diego (13-17). Ken Rancifer chipped in 12 points and Christopher Anderson handed out eight assists for the Toreros.
And so, here is the schedule for Friday where we'll find out who Gonzaga's opponent will be in the seminfinals.
