The 2022 West Coast Conference Tournament in Sin City

The 2022 West Coast Conference Tournament bracket it set and the games will be in Sin City and the Orleans Arena. The bracket and tipoff times were announced by the WCC today.

The ten teams are looking to pursue a chance and clinching the tournament automatic bid and to improve their resume for a potential at-large bid to go dancing in a couple of weeks.

Fortunately, fans will be able to attend the WCC Tournament this season after no fans were allowed last season.

Here’s the 2022 bracket:

Gonzaga, to no surprise, is the 1-seed, with the Saint Mary’s Gaels, who defeated the No. 1 ranked Bulldogs last night, being the 2-seed.

The Gaels and Zags get the byes to the semifinals, which will be Monday, March 7th.

The No. 3 seed is the Santa Clara Broncos, who are much better than people think but were hampered early on this season with injuries and illnesses. It would be fun to see two big rivals (Santa Clara & Saint Mary’s) meet in the semifinals.

The San Francisco Dons are the No. 4 seed, with the Brigham Young Cougars as the No. 5 seed. The two teams split the two regular season matchups, with the road team winning both games.

The first two rounds will be aired on the WCC Network. Then starting with the Quarterfinals, games will be televised on the ESPN Networks with the championship game on Tuesday, March 8th being televised on ESPN.
