Saint Mary's Gaels

2012-13: 28-7 (14-2)
In-conference offense: 1.14 points per possession (2nd)
In-conference defense: 0.94 points per possession (2nd)

For the first time in four years, Saint Mary's will be without guard Matthew Dellavedova, one of the nation's best offensive players and the team's leader in each of the past two seasons. Despite the loss, Randy Bennett's team will not be without experience. And it will be in a position to compete with the West Coast Conference's best.
