SMC Hoops – Best In The Bay

A few people have asked about the Saint Mary’s men’s basketball ticket commercial that is running currently on various channels on Comcast Cable throughout Contra Costa County.  (You can see it during Saturday’s 8 p.m. CSN Bay Area telecast of the Gaels vs. Murray State).

The theme of the spot revolves around the Gaels’ being the best Division I men’s college  basketball program in the Bay Area.  How did we come up with that statement, you ask?  Well, here is a simple chart that explains a basic fact – SMC has the best winning percentage over the last decade of any men’s basketball program in the Bay Area.
