11 NCAA Tournament Tickets Punched as Gonzaga Wins West Coast Conference Title

The ticket takers are coming! Eleven teams have secured their bid to the big dance as of Tuesday night. That list includes No. 1 Gonzaga who beat No. 17 Saint Mary’s (82-69) for the West Coast Conference championship — their third straight title and ninth of the last decade. A number of tickets were punched over the weekend before Tuesday’s finals. Another 21 automatic bids will be handed out in the coming days, and bid thieves are lurking. Bubble teams beware.
