College Basketball: Gonzaga wins WCC bid to NCAA

Eric McClellan scored 20 points, Kyle Wiltjer added 17 and Gonzaga took the guesswork out of its 18th straight NCAA tournament appearance by beating St. Mary's, 85-75, Tuesday night in the West Coast Conference championship game at Las Vegas.

Despite sharing the WCC regular-season crown, Gonzaga (26-7) was not a lock to make the NCAA tournament, but the Bulldogs took the suspense out of it by shooting 61%.

St. Mary's (27-5) tried to keep up with the Bulldogs' shooting, making 12 of 25 from three-point range, but the Gaels will have to hope their resume is good enough for an NCAA at-large berth.
