The men’s tournament begins on Friday and finishes on Tuesday, March 7, with a day off on Sunday thanks to religious observance by BYU.
There is plenty on the line for the top three seeded teams in the tournament: No. 1 Gonzaga, No. 2 Saint Mary’s, and No. 3 BYU.
The Zags are fighting for a No. 1 seed out west. They have no other options but to sweep the WCC Tournament to hopefully get that goal. Saint Mary’s is squarely in the tournament but any wins would go a long way to improving their seeding. BYU is suddenly almost in bubble conversation, but needs some more good wins to seal the deal.
Here is the bracket for the 2017 WCC Tournament:
