GAMEDAY: Gonzaga Plays 'Game of the Year' at Saint Mary's

Posted: Updated:

It's Gonzaga's game of the year Thursday night in Moraga, as the second place Bulldogs take on the first place Gaels of Saint Mary's.

The stakes are as high as they've ever been. The winner gets a share of first place in the WCC and perhaps a share of the regular season crown.

The Zags closed to within one game in the standings after trailing by as many as three games midway through the season. Now the resurgent Bulldogs – winners of six straight conference games have a chance to make it seven in a row and extend their streak of conference titles in the process.

"We don't remember when we had a game like this that meant so much in conference," said senior Steven Gray at practice this week. "It was a couple of years ago when we were both ranked but since then there hasn't been that same magnitude or importance. We're really excited to have this opportunity, and we just want to go out and make the most of it."

Thursday's game tips off from California at 8 p.m. on ESPN2.
