Fine job by Jeff. Not enough space in LAT with scandal at USD (University Side Door). Irvine has 27 wins with a win at St Mary's, which just beat No.1 Zags by 13. But Zots must win Big West tourney to get NCAA. As committee goes sleepless in search of bracket integrity.
Big bubble game at noon with NC State-Clemson. Not sure I would invite either of them, but the loser can forget it. Also of note, bubble-wise: TCU has an important Big 12 game against OK State. Saint Mary's sent someone packing to the NIT last night.
Gonzaga scored 47 points tonight. Gonzaga beat Saint Mary's by 48 a month ago.
Wait a minute ... Saint Mary's beat Gonzaga? And held Gonzaga to 47 points? What? I was so sure that wouldn't happen that I didn't watch.
