    The Conference standings are as follows:

    West Coast
    Team Tot. W-L
    Gonzaga 11-1
    Santa Clara 9-2
    St. Marys 8-2
    BYU 8-4
    Pepperdine 7-5

    The RPI standings are as follows:

    USF 164
    Pepperdine 183
    San Diego 231
    LMU 251
    Portland 256

    The league has very few noteworthy wins.

    Gonzaga's win over RPI 27 Oklahoma is the league's best win.

    BYU has a win over No. 42 Cal State Northridge. BYU has four decent losses to Baylor, Iowa State, Notre Dame and Florida State and a win at PAC-12 Utah.

    SMC's best win was against No. 88 Pacific in revenge of their earlier loss to that same team. They also have a win over No. 90 Utah State.

    Santa Clara has wins over three teams ranked between 51-100 in St. Louis, Wagner, and Pacific. They have no bad losses.

    San Francisco beat RPI 93 St. John's but has too many losses and a couple of bad losses to Holy Cross and Nevada.

    Pepperdine beat Washington State - RPI 174.

    San Diego has no good wins or bad losses.

    LMU's best win was against might Northern Arizona at RPI 181.

    Portland has a lot of good losses.

    All notes are from CBSsports.com.

    Mods, feel free to move this to the WCC board.

    Wait... I thought the Dons were going to be the team to beat this year.

    Hadn't you heard?

    Their national championships mean that they are ALWAYS the team to beat.

    I was already celebrating our rise in the RPI - alas, reality.

    The road game at SCU will be even harder than usual, that team has become accustomed to winning.

    BYU = 4 losses??

    Last year the WCC was 11, year before 13. We are getting better without help from SM or BYU now. Sky is the limit if everyone gets better.

    Ugh. RPI. Pretty worthless, even this far into the year.

    I think a portion of that bump last year was BYU joining.

    WCC has been as high as 7 in the past. http://realtimerpi.com/2004-2005/rpi_conf_Men.html

    There would probably have to be some fundamental changes to climb higher than that, though the MVC figured it out once.
