GU @SMC on ESPN right now. Zags had an early lead, Gaels have pulled even.

Might be relevant to some of the discussion on here: conference close game to blowout rankings.

All other home teams won tonight.
GU beat USF 96-61, with a big 2nd half.
SMC beat LMU 81-48.
SCU beat PU 106-55! Kratch went for 32.
BYU beat USD 82-70.

Pilots almost assured the #10 slot; 2 back with 3 to play. #6 thru #9 are LMU and PU at 5-10, USD and UOP at 4-11. One of those teams will get the bye, one will play UP, and the other two will play each other. My prediction is that LMU will win 2 more and be the bye, PU will lose all 3, and USD will win one, and UOP will lose all 3. That would leave PU and USD tied for #7/8. Both of them beat BYU, and they split their games. The USD win over LMU might mean they play the Pilots back to back.

Too bad, the Pilots have played best against LMU this year with 2 close losses, and I'd like another chance against the Lions.

Purple tinted glasses: I can remember times when we beat LMU twice in the season and then lost to them in the tournament. And, the other way around where we have lost to them (and Saint Mary's) twice in season only to beat them in the tournament.

Pepperdine beat LMU as well. I think Pepperdine would actually take a tiebreaker over USD at 5-13 thanks to their win against Pacific.

My last guess at a WCC bracket. Used your scenario above with the exception of LMU winning all 3 remaining games. Mostly because I didn't feel like breaking a 3-way tie between BYU/USF/SCU for third place.

GU cruised past UOP 82-61.
SMC won at BYU 70-57, as BYU was hit with injuries.
LMU beat PU 82-61.
USD got the upset at SCU 60-58 in double OT. That was not the win I predicted for the Toreros. And it hurts the Broncos' chance to pass BYU.

That increases USD's changes of getting the #7 spot.

A couple blowouts, a couple nail biters.
GU won @USD, 96-38.
SMC won at PU 78-49.
LMU beat USF 53-51.
SCU beat UOP 69-68.

PU and USD still tied at 5-12. PU hosts USF. I still predict that UP plays USD back-to-back. Otherwise, Dean's bracket is looking solid.

In addition to BYU's win,
USF won at PU 76-65,
SMC beat SCU 70-56,
LMU beat UOP 67-66.

SCU and USF both have a 10-8 record. I think SCU gets the #4 seed. If so, Dean's bracket is correct.

Almost correct, gotta switch up USD and Pepperdine in the 7/8 spots.

Oops, I know USD was #7, just missed it on your bracket. Good job.

GU 3 of 16 from 3Pt, and only 55% (missed 13 of 29) on FTs. Choke?

If not a "choke," hopefully it was a wakeup call....

Very few in the WCC like to see BYU win (probably something to do with the relative size of BYU compared to the rest of the WCC schools), but I for one am glad GU suffered its first loss to a WCC school rather than going out early in the NCAA Tournament and then both GU and the WCC taking grief for being a "weak" team in a "weak" conference.

Definitely a dominate performance by Eric Mika (29 points and 11 rebounds), but even better, there were apparently a few NBA scouts at the game....hopefully they'll tell him he'll be drafted in the first round, and he'll leave BYU early .  Cool

And the writers agreed, dropping GU from 1st to 4th in the AP poll:
1. Kansas (58) 26-3
2. Villanova (2) 27-3
3. UCLA (3) 26-3
4. Gonzaga (2) 29-1
5. North Carolina 25-5
6. Oregon 26-4
7. Arizona 26-4
8. Louisville 23-6
9. Kentucky 24-5
10. West Virginia 23-6

Interestingly, Villanova lost at home to then #22 (now #11) Butler (their second loss to the Bulldogs this season), and did not drop in the polls.  UCLA moved up with their win over then #4 Arizona in Tucson and Oregon stayed at #6 by winning twice at the buzzer in the Bay Area.  

With conference tournaments coming up, some teams in the top-10 are bound to lose (North Carolina and West Virginia lost tonight), but no doubt it's still imperative that GU win the WCC Tournament if they are to get one of the #1 seeds....hopefully in the west.
