After missing an opportunity to all but assure itself a spot in the NCAA Tournament, No. 22 Saint Mary's returns to the mundane portion of its West Coast Conference schedule when it hosts Loyola Marymount on Thursday.
The Gaels lost to No. 1 Gonzaga 74-64 on Saturday - their second setback to the Bulldogs this season, losing all realistic chance of winning the WCC regular-season title and facing perhaps a must-win situation in the conference tournament in order to make the Big Dance.
Saint Mary's failed to make the 2016 NCAA Tournament despite a 27-5 record and two victories over Gonzaga as its fate was cemented by losing to the Bulldogs in the WCC tournament championship.
The Gaels have four regular-season games remaining against teams they've already beaten by a combined 58 points this season - and with more of the same expected in the early rounds of the conference tourney, they should get another shot at Gonzaga in the final March 7.
