LMU pulled the surprise upset and Santa Clara rolled over Pacific in the first round.

LMU didn't win too many games in the conference season, but now they are three more wins away from a NCAA Tournament berth. It probably won't happen, but it has to feel good to at least be playing with the big boys now after upsetting the Portland Pilots, 67-64, on Thursday night in the first round of the WCC Tournament.

Santa Clara had a much easier time rolling over Pacific, advancing into the quarterfinals with a SCORE win. Santa Clara will face Gonzaga in the quarterfinals and LMU goes on to face BYU.

Most of Gonzaga nation was angling for a Pacific win on Thursday night. The Broncos played Gonzaga very tight this year and a Sam Dower three was needed to give the Zags the victory the last time around. Santa Clara will also have a day off because the women take over the court on Friday, giving them the necessary rest.

Here is the updated bracket.
