  1. Jeff. I am going to challenge you on AZ being out. You have to take into account teams that get better throughout the year. Arizona incorporated 3 freshman...2 starting. Miller has finally gotten the play he was looking for. Since Feb 1, we have lost 1 game(at Wash) and will go into the Pac tourney winning 8 of 9, with 5 of those games on the road. Not to mention Mayes and Parrom have been out with injury. We will finish reg season 23-9, have zero bad losses(worst at UCLA) and have played 13 true road games. We have been in every game and have wins against 3 conference winners: at Cal, at New Mex St and Valpo. Non-Conf schedule of SD St, Clemson, Valpo, Duquesne, at Florida, at St Johns, at Gonzaga, at New Mexico St, Miss St and Oakland. I know all the other bubble teams can't say the same. They either do not have the OOC schedule we have or have been blown out a few times, or have bad losses, or do not have the number of road wins we have. We will lack in the top 50 win category vs bubble teams in the Big10, Big East, ACC and Big 12. Not our fault the bottom half of Pac has so many 200 + rpi's. Put Zona in any of the other conferences and we have 5 top 50 wins, easy.
