Sure seems like the message that the NCAA sent St. Mary's today.
First, they leave them waiting at the alter of the Big Dance. Then, they stick them with a game against a WSU team that would have been dangerous in the NCAA's. For them, the match-up is a big stinkin "Yuck."
As Vince and company already have posted, the Gaels lost ONE game at home this year--to the Zags by two.
So, they're tough.
That said, when bubble teams have their bubble's burst on Selection Sunday, their motivation to move on often goes with it--and they often TANK first round NIT games.
However, St. Mary's matches up VERY well with us (and vice versa) so it should be a heck of a game.
That said, if we advance, does South Carolina or San Diego State scare you?
They sure don't scare me.
Simply put: win on Tuesday and I think we're heading to New York.
Lets go get em.
