John Gasaway ESPN Insider 

Saint Mary's couldn't get much attention this season largely because the Gaels lost three times to Gonzaga by an average of 17 points per drubbing. But you can be worse that the Bulldogs and still play pretty well. SMC dispatched VCU thanks to a combined 50 points on 16-of-26 shooting from Joe Rahon, Jock Landale and Calvin Hermanson.

Chantel Jennings ESPN Staff Writer 

St. Marys heads into the half with a comfortable 46-31 lead. The Gaels shot 64 percent from the floor, which is even more impressive when considering the fact that VCU has held opponents to 42 percent from the floor.

No. 10 seed VCU over No. 7 Saint Mary's is among Thursday's likeliest upsets. But the Gaels' Jock Landale, our player to watch in Salt Lake City, might have something to say about that.
