Gaels at WCC Media Day

With less than two weeks until opening night and a Gaels basketball doubleheader at home, coaches and student-athletes from all West Coast Conference teams traveled to Los Angeles for the WCC Tip Off Event. Joe Rahon and Randy Bennett represented the men’s team and Devon Brookshire and Paul Thomas represented the women.

Preseason polls and all-conference teams were released and the Gaels once again found themselves near the top. The men were picked second by coaches, received three first-place votes, and landed Naar, Pineau, and Rahon on the all-WCC preseason team. The women were picked to finish third, earned one first-place vote, and Stella Beck was named to the preseason all-WCC team.

It was lights, camera, action as the Gaels talked about the excitement for the upcoming season and the focus in the final stretch of practices before games begin. SMCGaels.com has a full round-up of the day with multiple videos.

Both Gaels teams play their first game of the year at home in McKeon Pavilion. On Friday, November 11, the women host Cal at 5:30pm and the men play Nevada at 8:00pm. Tickets are available on SMCGaels.com and the games will be streamed live via GaelVision.
