Intentional Upset: San Diego Overcomes Gonzaga
Crashing big parties and dances that you otherwise may not be invited to is always a treat, especially this time of year. Not wanting to miss out on this type of fun, the San Diego Toreros overcame some hot shooting by the 22-ranked Gonzaga Bulldogs in order to win the West Coast Conference tournament and to secure an automatic bid to the Big Dance, starting next Thursday (Tuesday if you count the play-in game).
Not only did the Toreros achieve all of these goals, they also snapped a 13-game losing streak to everybody’s en-vogue Cinderella pick. The Toreros victory also promises the West Coast Conference will have two bids to the Big Dance, taking a spot from one of the remaining bubble teams (teams like Florida and Syracuse).
