GU baseball plays at Wazzu Tuesday and then goes to BYU for 3 to wrap WCC season. Sitting tied for 3rd at 12-9 with LMU and USF. Mathematically out of race for championship and automatic berth since Pepp and USD are 14-7 and they play each other this weekend.

Thus, GU could finish as high as 2nd. Don't know if 35 or 36 wins will be enough to get an NCAA at-large.

West Coast Conference (3 bids)

SAFELY IN: San Diego, San Diego



One change from last week: Gonzaga rejoins our field of 64 after a one-week absence.

After losing 11 of its previous 14 games, Gonzaga got back on track this weekend with a sweep of Portland to vault from sixth to third in the WCC. But Gonzaga is still just 3-10 against the top 25, and it was swept at fellow bubble dweller New Mexico in March, so clearly the Zags remain on precarious footing. Gonzaga has struggled against the best teams on its schedule, but it has fared better against the next tier, going 13-3 against teams 51-100 for a 16-13 overall record against the top 100. And Gonzaga's RPI (No. 45) is in much better shape than New Mexico's, Tulane's or Texas State's, for instance....
