San Francisco did themselves good with a big win over St. Mary's this week. That gives the Dons the inside edge for the No. 3 seed in the WCC Tournament. And to think the season began with them losing one of their most important players.
Instead of being led by big names, this San Francisco team has moved to the top of the conference quietly without the stars. Otherwise, we would be hearing a lot about Kruize Pinkins. I mean, how do you ignore a name like that.
The junior is one of the best rebounders in the country at the offensive end and helps the Dons to extend their possessions. And over the last two games, he has contributed 42 points on the scoreboard.
Can Pinkins help lead San Francisco when Pacific comes to town? We will find out here at 3 p.m. Pacific.
