No. Our guys are too willing to share the ball. Any given game, Pangos, Bell, or Dower will pick up the scoring load needed, while Kelly and Elias have been consistently good all season.

I'm sorry, but Wiltjer isn't the guy we thought he was. The ebb and flow of that game was entirely based upon the presence of Wiltjer on the floor or on the bench. He simply can't defend.

This is a wild, wacky WCC tournament. Very unpredictable with LMU and San Diego pulling on upsets.

San Diego up 7 on Saint Mary's right now? Really?

We need a win against SMC but I would like to see USD beat them, or at least beat them up some.

I do have a feeling that we will win tomorrow by more than we won today, no matter who we play.

we really don't need to play another rpi killer like San Diego.

Plus it looks better on the WCC as a conference if St Mary's can still make the NCAA tourney even if they couldn't take a game away from the Zags

Yes. I do seem to grapple with those "fact" things from time to time.

What is funny is that I knew the game was Monday - - should have said next game.

Anyone have a feeling that we will blow out whomever, on Monday, by more than 18?

You make a good point. With all the excitement about Duke's win, they could jump us on Monday and all the hype next weekend with the big tournaments, we could become an after thought.

If they come back and beat USD and then the Zags pound them by 20 will they be in?

In yesterday's Bracket Math, Lunardi had the Gaels at #37 ... the last at-large team was #51.

There are a ton of teams moving up, and a loss to USD would drop them ( my guess ... ) at least 8-9 spots overnight.

32 conferences, 31 with auto-bids, three of which have been awarded. They'd have to pray for the 28 remaining tournaments to "go chalk".
