Not sure I've ever seen a player as good as Jock Landale commit three worse fouls to take himself out of a game. Saint Mary's looked on the verge of pushing Gonzaga to the wire early in the second half, when Landale -- a legit POY candidate -- returned from a foul-ridden, six minute first half and got his game going around the rim. Instead the Gaels got run out of the gym. (Not unrelated: Gonzaga is really good.)

This weekend's best game is not the one you think it is

Forget about Duke-Louisville and Florida State's trip to Chapel Hill. Saturday's best entertainment will come from Spokane, Washington, where Saint Mary's will try to deal Gonzaga its first loss.
