Saint Mary's gets No. 10 seed, will face Richmond 

Saint Mary's received the No. 10 seed in the South Regional of the NCAA tournament and will face Richmond in a first-round game Thursday at Providence, R.I.

By winning the West Coast Conference tournament, Saint Mary's (26-5) earned an automatic NCAA bid. This is Saint Mary's sixth NCAA tournament berth and third under coach Randy Bennett, who is in his ninth season at the school.

Richmond (25-8), the No. 7 seed in the South, finished third in the Atlantic 10 and is making its seventh trip to the tournament.

Saint Mary's is 1-5 all-time in NCAA tournament games. The Gaels' only win came in 1959, their first NCAA trip. They opened with a victory over Idaho State before falling to California, which went on to win the tournament.
