Five reasons BYU will make the NCAA tournament
St. Mary’s is 3-0 against BYU since the Cougars joined the West Coast Conference. Last year, the Men from Moraga were outstanding. This year’s Gaels are still stellar but not quite what they were last year. Nevertheless, Dellavedova’s dagger in Provo gives the Gaels an aura of invincibility when it comes to playing BYU. This, however, will not last.
BYU will likely face St. Mary’s two more times this year—in Moraga on Feb. 21 and in the West Coast Conference semifinals. BYU has to win at least one, and I believe they will find a way to win at least one of those contests. The Gaels are a good team but not good enough to beat BYU three times in one season. If the Cougars can beat the Gaels in Moraga, the Conference semifinal matchup could well be a NCAA play-in game of sorts, as St. Mary’s is also a bubble team.
