The team is located in Moraga, California and plays their home games at the McKeon Pavilion. The McKeon Pavilion has a capacity of 3,500 people and opened in 1978. The arena is one of the smallest in the West Coast Conference, and its small size can create a suffocating environment for opposing teams. The team plays in the West Coast Conference. The team is currently coached by Randy Bennett. In Bennett’s eleven years as coach, he has turned the Gaels from a struggling mid-major squad to a perennial NCAA Tournament team. In each of the last five years, the team has made it to the postseason, including three NCAA Tournament berths in that span, and four in his tenure as coach. Bennett is 235-117 at Saint Mary’s and has made it to the Sweet Sixteen once.
