Gaels arrive in Anaheim, conduct short practice

Despite the early hour, members of the Saint Mary’s men’s basketball team were in surprisingly good spirits this morning when they departed campus this morning at 6:30 a.m. The team took a short Southwest Airlines flight to John Wayne Airport in Orange County and arrived at its headquarters hotel, adjacent to the Anaheim Convention Center, around 11 a.m.

The team conducted a short practice at the Convention Center in preparation for tomorrow’s 1:30 p.m. game against Drexel in the first round of the DIRECTV Classic.  ESPN announcers Roxy Bernstein and Stephen Bardo watched as the Gaels went through drills for about an hour – the allotted time provided to each participating team.

After practice, announcer Alex Jensen caught-up with Stephen Holt and Beau Levesque for this pre-tournament preview.

Tickets are still available.  Visit this website or search TicketMaster for tickets.
