mascottixNearly one-third of the Saint Mary’s student body arrived as early as 3 a.m. and withstood wind, rain and cold weather to claim courtside tickets to see Thursday’s battle for first place in the West Coast Conference basketball standings.

The 15-2 Gaels host Gonzaga at 8 p.m. Thursday night in sold out McKeon Pavilion.  Both teams are 6-1 in WCC play and the winner will claim sole possession of the top spot in the league standings.

San Diego native John Goodrich was the first SMC student in line for the student distribution, which was moved inside to Dryden Hall due to inclement weather.  He arrived at 3 a.m. and was soon followed by other Gael Force members.
