After beating Ohio State by 23 last night, Penn State has cracked BPI's top 25. The Nittany Lions have a 33% chance to reach the NCAA tournament.

Few talks beating St. Mary's, tournament pre-seedings and more

Gonzaga HC Mark Few joins Courtside to weigh in on the Bulldogs' massive conference win over St. Mary's, the biggest differences that he's seen in his team over the course of the year, the depth in their guard play, the level of skill from Nigel Williams-Goss, problems with on-floor communication, paying attention to the buzz of tournament pre-seeding and more.

Might have expected *either* Gonzaga or Rhode Island to be left out, but not both. Gonzaga has elite predictive metrics but a middling RPI and Rhode Island has a top-five RPI but just one Quadrant 1 win. Confusing message from the committee.

Decent-sized upgrades to BPI ratings for Gonzaga, Texas Tech, Nevada and Florida after yesterday. Downgrades for Tennessee and Virginia. Texas A&M moved into top 30, Oklahoma dropped to 31.

Gonzaga avenges its home loss to Saint Mary's by dominating the Gaels in Moraga. Hopefully we get a rubber match in the West Coast Conference tournament. We're likely headed for a share of the regular-season title, although Gonzaga still has to play at BYU.
