Either win out, including Gonzaga, or win the WCC tourney to guarantee an NCAA berth. If BYU can't do either of these two things, they might not get in.

RE: TJ- My sentiments exactly, and the Cougs have no one else to blame but themselves. They can't rely on anyone else to "help them out." With that being said, keep things rolling, Cougs! Epic game last night. Wow!

BYU needs to win, it is as simple as that. If they lose another game at any point they leave it up to chance and it is a slim chance. If they beat Gonzaga and make it to the final of the WCC tourney win or lose I think they are in, if they lose to Gonzaga and cannot win the tourney it is questionable.

Any chance of the Utes making it to the tournament?

"Any chance of the Utes making it to the tournament?"

Yes, the Utes have a realistic chance of making it to the PAC 12 tournament.

It's hard to fathom how BYU might not be among the 65 best teams in the country. However, the way the selection committee plays favorites with the "major" conferences always results in some deserving teams being left out.

Since the WCC is far better than the PAC-12 this year, they deserve at least 3 teams in the tourney. Right now those 3 teams would be St. Mary's, Gonzaga and BYU.

"Right now those 3 teams would be St. Mary's, Gonzaga and BYU."

But if BYU slips up, LMU is lurking right behind them. They are a pretty good team as well. If not for early season injuries, they could very well be 1st or 2nd in the conference right now.


SMC losing to an Ohio Valley team really does not help make the WCC look like a 3-bid league. It might be different if Murray St. had still been undefeated. Good luck in the conference tourney.

@sls "Since the WCC is far better than the PAC-12 this year"

hahahahahaha. thats also what everyone else around the country would do to that delusional comment. the wcc already proved how overrated they are.... oh oops the pac 12 is STILL ranked higher than the weak nobody wcc. hahahaha what a joke of a conference.
