It's very, very simple. Just win. Beat Memphis, then beat LMU, then beat Pepp, then.... You get the picture. It's the only way to get a sniff at an at-large chance (if needed), and it's the key to taking Vegas. Four more hostile road games where gyms will be packed and it's the biggest game of the year to them. It won't be easy and in all honesty the odds are against winning out, but if Few goes with the best players and/or who has the hottest hand...

Portland was only a start, a good start.

You're dead on BZ - winning cures all. We need some help from the other teams to catch SMC. But if we take care of our own business, starting Sat with Memphis, we'll be OK. One game at a time, focused and payin' team ball - bring on the Tigers!

One bite at a time. Memphis is next. That is all.

Winning is always the best policy.

Even if the Zags win out, they are in danger if they don't win the conference tournament.

There are any number of teams that could sneak into post season and rob a spot from GU. For example, Michigan had Ohio State on the ropes the other day. Every upset in the post season conference tournaments will steal an "at large" bid. Given the general parity in college hoops this year, leaving fate at the hands of the selection committee is suicide.

Zags absolutely have to win in Vegas. If they don't, I'm not even sure if they deserve a bid. Going in as a 10-12 seed, GU would face stiffer competition in the first weekend than any team they would face in the WCC tournament (with the possible excepion of SMC). The selection comittee knows that. The Zags lose to any team but SMC in Vegas and it is game over.

Just had to fix that for you.
