I think it is broken. 29-5 with a 6-7 seed.

I am fluctuating between one more loss and two.

I really think we're playing better - especially Sam coming hard playing his best ball, Gary finding a bit of a comfort level and Kevin closer to normal. But this team is not exactly a group of road warriors, has a loss to Portland (not even close) and a near loss (way too close) to Santa Clara. I think we'll lose one of the two BYU/SMC that we expect to be close and I am terrified that we'll lose one that we don't expect to be close. USD or Pacific.

I do think they'll win the WCC tournament.

28-6 and a seven seed.

Before conference started I said we will win at least 4 of 5 vs BYU and SMC, I really think we sweep them in the regular season and take care of business at USD and Pacific. I think SMC is going to be a beatdown, they just aren't good this year.

The Zags don't play at home again, this season. That's a tough situation this early in February. My 8 ball says two losses before the NCAA tournament, and two wins there.

a 7 or better seed is wishful thinking.

even IF we were able to win out -- highly doubtful imo -- an 8/9 is best we're gonna get this season. Just a feeling...

We still have to play BYU AT BYU(undefeated at Marriott), and SMC AT SMC(even are most talented yrs, this is tough draw). Not to mention Grier and USD have our # most seasons. Will go either way.

We could conceivably drop 3 of 4, yet also doubtful. I feel we lose only 1 more game this season and possibly WCC Championship as BYU reeks of desperation right now.

Zags receive 8,9, or 10 seed by my best guess.

I hate to be pessimistic, but even if Gonzaga wins out I don't see the committee rewarding Gonzaga with a spot in Spokane. They've never done it before I don't see them doing it now. Something that would be much more in line with the committee would be to put Gonzaga as a 7 seed in Raleigh to matchup with Duke in the round of 32. I really hope I'm wrong, but I don't expect any help from the committee at all. The recent trend has been to stick Gonzaga right in their opponent's back yard.

I can't believe the pessimism! I totally understand thinking we won't win out, but as of now we are easily a 7 seed or maybe higher. Our RPI, record, BPI, KenPom, etc basically every statistic says were are a top 6-7 seed. There's no reason for us not to win out, and even if we do lose a game we will still be at least a top 8 seed

My pessimism isn't with Gonzaga it's with the selection committee.

This makes absolutely no sense to me. I'm not too worried about it because I don't think he's right, but what's his logic behind this move?

Lose 1 of the next 4 then get blown out in the semis to land a 10 seed then we sneak up on everyone and make the Final 4!

They rewarded us with a spot in Portland before.

one more loss, seeded between 7 and 10, lose to a 1/2 in (real) round 2 in disappointing fashion - ie, had that one and let it get away -- unless its syracuse, then its a boat race

An RPI in the 8-15 Range, and a 6 seed in the tournament.

Call me Polly and I'll fluff my feathers. Win out, including Vegas, then at Spokaloo in the tournament and anything can happen. I am especially encouraged by our team getting healthy at the right time and this trumps all the gloomy analytics. Go Zags!

Trying to be unbiased here and I don't see an impressive resume for the Zags this year. No quality wins, and bad losses to Portland and Dayton.
Regardless of how the rest of the season goes I don't think anyone should expect a decent seed. The WCC is still regarded as a weak conference to the rest of the country and rightfully so.
I still don't even know what to make of the Zags yet. I wonder if they would even be a .500 team in the Big 12 or 10.

Zags11

I think gonzaga still have 20 wins in those conferences.

My 8 ball says that Wichita State's win over GU last year is going to create doubt about untested teams and cost them the #1 seed this year. #IRONY

Why ? Many thought a win @ BYU was going to be a tall order. . .BYU played better and the Zags committed a ton of turnovers.

They made Carlino look like an all-league player

It came from the 8-Ball not me. I only ask the questions. I have maintained 29-5 with BYU being the 5th loss.
