Dons Display Grit in WCC Semifinals

LAS VEGAS, Nev. - Giving it all they had until the final buzzer, the University of San Francisco men's basketball team battled throughout every possession on Monday night, but the Dons ultimately fell to No. 9/8 Gonzaga, 84-73, in the semifinal round of the 2023 University Credit Union West Coast Conference Tournament at Orleans Arena.


  • Finding their rhythm early, Gonzaga raced out to an early 12-2 lead through the first 3:45 of the contest.
  • Although the Bulldogs would extend their advantage to fifteen, 25-10, at the 12:44 mark, USF responded by whittling their deficit with each possession thereafter.
