The zags can easily move up three spots as well. The RPI numbers are extremely close.

St. Joseph is knocking on the door of the top 50, but with a couple of tough games still to go (Xavier at Hawk Hill and Dayton at Dayton). Utah falls out of the top 100, with two games left, including one at UNLV). Western Kentucky sneaks into the top 50, with its regular season finished yesterday.

I'll be interested in seeing CDC84's take on all this.

The guy who does this mock bracket is an idiot. Read the comment next to Gonzaga.

That will give GU two more top 50 wins.

Another note, GU has no losses outside the top 50

Seems like an awful waste of time & resources. Had the Gaels had just stayed in Spokane Saturday, they probably wouldn't have run out of gas in the 2nd half.

He had Texas plugged in as the #1 seed in the Midwest. Back to the drawing board. It's a waste of time, anybody could fill out a bracket and hang a label on it. (Have to admit, I did like seeing the Zags as a 6 seed.)

Texas Tech, Western Kentucky, St. Joe's, and Virginia Tech can all help out GU with their RPI numbers... good luck to all of them :)

Texas Tech has 2 tough games against Kansas (road) and Baylor (home)...

Western Kentucky heads into their conf. tourney as the #2 seed... it will be hard for S. Alabama to beat a good Western Kentucky team 3 times if they face eachother in the final.

St. Joe's has a monster schedule remaining against Temple (home), Xavier (home), and Dayton (road)... a great opportunity to lock up their at-large bid status though.

Virginia Tech. has Wake Forest (home) and Clemson (away) left... it would be nice to see the finish strong and jump into the top 50 RPI.

What a great week of basketball, and it only gets better :D

The truth of the matter is that the judgment of the selection committee is going to be subjective. We can turn ourselves inside out collecting and comparing data, but in the end, the selection committee isn't bound by any particular mathematical formula, and a number of schools are going to be saying on Selection Sunday (which, by the way, is just 13 days away), "We was robbed," and there won't be a thing they can do about it.

I just don't want to hear Billy Packer and Jim Nance wailing about the committee not favoring enough BCS schools this year ... Those two guys are dead to me since that pitiful performance - was it just last year?

St. Joe's is not looking good heading towards the final stretch... tonight they lost at home to Temple 57-56 :( Zag fans will have to hope for better results against Xavier and Dayton this week.

Hmm. too bad. I'm not holding my breath about Xavier and Dayton. St. Joe's was favored to win that game against Temple in KenPom, with a 74% probability, followed by losses predicted for Xavier and Dayton, with only 32% and 39% probailities for wins.

[CODE]Sun Mar 2 Home W, 75-69[64] (74%) Saint Joseph's vs. (81) Temple (sr)
