    Yeah, the Dons aren't great but they are well above average.
    ...and this one belongs to the Reds.

    BYU has climbed to NET #18. A win Saturday would make the Zags 6-1 vs. Q1 and a near lock for a 1 seed. We can also probably go ahead and lock in the Baylor/Kansas winner this weekend on the 1 line as well.

    If Baylor and Gonzaga cross paths, I personally have zero doubt who wins that game. Also, not sure if you watched the game, but that 17 point win was a result of fouling in the last minute and Gonzaga shooting and making a 3 pointer as time expired. It was around a 10 point lead with a little over a minute left.

    Btw, WVU beat TCU by 32 this year.

    above average? In the sense they are in the top half of the 300+ D1 teams, ok...but that is the only way they get defined "above average". I would not consider a team you play that will either result in a Q3 win or loss above average.

    353 schools...they are 96th in the NET. North Carolina is #94.
    ...and this one belongs to the Reds.

    Gonzaga and Baylor have two commons opponents: Washington & Arizona. Baylor lost to Washington on a neutral court by 3, Gonzaga beat Washington in Seattle by 7. And they both beat Arizona by single-digits.

    I point this out tongue-in-cheek because these games happened in November and December, but I'm a big mid-major fan so you'll always find me going to bat for the strong teams from the "lesser" conferences.

    just gonna admit I may have been too tough on the WCC....sure there is some East Coast bias in there. I was looking at Sagarin rankings, and the WCC ranks stronger than the Mountain West and A-10. I would not have thought it was stronger than either.

    Gonzaga probably moves up if they win given that they're also playing a ranked team on the road. But may be right between them and KU.

    Mick's Minions win their 5th straight, and 9th out of their last 11. This includes 3 wins over ranked opponents. They could be in a tie for first place in the PAC 12 by the end of the evening.
