One that I find most intriguing is SMC (12-2) @ BYU (12-2) at 1p. Big game for WCC standings early on the league slate.

Saint Mary's (12-2)
BYU (12-2)

Pepperdine (3-10)
San Diego (10-3)

Santa Clara (4-9)

A Saint Mary's win pushes them close to the Top-25 again. Then a few more moves them in. This's important for the WCC in order to put two teams into the Dance again. Would really like to see BYU make it three for the Dance. It's very early (league-wise), so there's a chance. (San Diego's really intriguing this season. Hope they keep winning. Hope San Diego's turn-around is a harbinger of more & more wins, and better & better teams to come.)

BYU's defense is light years ahead of last season. They might be less talented than last season but they definitely look better as a team. Not gonna be a pushover.

And then there were none. UA beats ASU 84-78. ASU kept battling back from double digit deficits in the 2nd half, Cats were kinda barely hanging on at the end. Ayton w/ a monster game and Trier came alive in the 2nd half after a quiet first 20 minutes.

All the talk from BYU fans about them taking over the WCC and unseating Gonzaga, and yet Randy Bennett and SMC seemingly has a better formula for beating them than anyone. They have just totally dominated the series since the Cougars joined the league.

BYU played far better team basketball on offense and defense than usual. Both of these teams played well.

In Oklahoma's win over TCU yesterday, Trae Young scored 35 points and had 14 assists. And the crazy thing is, that's not exactly unusual for him to put up numbers like that. He was a McDonald's AA and I saw him on some lists of top impact freshmen, but holy cow he's been unbelievable this year. Marvin Bagley, DeAndre Ayton, Trae Young...who do you take as #1 in the draft this year? Probably can't go wrong with any of those 3.

Trae is so fun to watch. I will go out of my way to see his game. I think he is probably the leader for POY so far. (Btw, he had 39 yesterday). But I donít think heís even in the discussion for #1 pick. Itís either Bagley, Ayton or the Euro kid.

I thought I heard that he is leading the nation in scoring avg and assists, pretty impressive for a freshman.

especially if he can maintain it playing in a p5 conference...there are still worries about his physical profile from an nba scouting perspective, which maybe keeps him out of consideration for the top few spots.
