I agree whole heartedly with the ESPN article. There is more parity in the WCC this year than any other time in the last decade, or at least the last three years during the BYU era.

First, Gonzaga is still good, but they are not their usual, out of this world good.

Second, the middle of the WCC is much better than most years with the rest of the conference proving they can beat top teams on any given night.

I hope the Cougs are playing the Zags in the championship game, but this year, anything is possible.

I'm happy I get to watch every game on either ESPN or BYU. There will be a lot of WCC fans in CA, OR and WA tuning into BYUtv this week. Maybe they'll stay over and watch Studio C.

USA Today sees talent that is deserving of NCAA tourney in BYU.
But I am confused, I expected to see u as a #1 seed. After all they have a .500 conference record and stellar OCC record in the top 10 SOS.

Last 5 in: Oregon, BYU, California, Dayton, Minnesota

Multi-bid conferences: Big 12 (7), Pac-12 (7), A-10 (6), Big Ten (6), AAC (5), ACC (5), Big East (3), SEC (3), MWC (2), WCC (2)

------------------

So #2 WCC team is as good as the current #6 and #7 PAC-12 teams.

@CougFaninTX: "There is more parity in the WCC this year than any other time in the last decade, or at least the last three years during the BYU era."

Having more parity among bad teams isn't a good think, considering only 2 teams are going dancing with the #2 team being on the bubble.

Compare that parity in the PAC-12. Utah is one game from of being #4 in the PAC-12 with 7 teams predicted to be in the tournament.

Gonzaga has never been great, as a number #1 seed they lost in the 2nd round last year. This year they are average, as good as ASU.

But seriously folks!

Nice spin uteology. If it provide some relief from the sting of missing out knock yourself out.
The only reason California is mentioned is that they get to play Utah at home and get that extra win. One game away from being #4? Really? LOL.
