The Bulldogs (23-5, 13-3) finished second after St. Mary's (14-2) clinched the conference title with a 67-60 win over San Francisco later Saturday. The top two seeds get a bye into the semifinals of the West Coast tournament next Saturday.

Gonzaga pulled ahead 59-57 on a jumper by Sacre with 1:51 remaining and closed the game on an 8-0 run.
