Saint Mary's plans for another upset after stunning Gonzaga

MORAGA, Calif. (AP) Randy Bennett has earned seven NCAA Tournament bids, made one trip to the Sweet Sixteen and turned a two-win team into one of the winningest on the West Coast since arriving to coach at tiny Saint Mary's nearly two decades ago.

This year's trip to the tournament might be the most unexpected, and gratifying, of Bennett's career.

His rebuilding Gaels weren't supposed to get here - not this year, anyway. It was last season's experienced group that went 30-6, won 19 straight games and absolutely planned to be playing on the big March stage only to be left out on Selection Sunday.
