Selection Sunday Preview 2012: West Coast Conference

Selection Sunday is finally here and we are rolling through the conferences to let you know what to expect this evening when the 2012 NCAA tournament bracket is announced.

Let’s take a quick look at what we’ll be seeing from the WCC:


Saint Mary’s – The Gaels locked up an automatic bid by beating Gonzaga in the WCC tournament final. At 27-5, they would have gotten in anyways, but being crowned tournament champions certainly helped their seeding.

Gonzaga – The Zags should still be fine in terms of seeding despite losing in the WCC final. They finished the year strong and most believe they’ll be in that 6-8 seed range.

BYU – BYU had a very good post-Jimmer Fredette season and while they’ll be sneaking in with a lower seed, could still play the spoiler role well.


No other WCC teams are expected to make it into the field.

What are your thoughts on these three WCC teams?
