NCAA Tournament Bracketology 2011: St. Mary's Among Final Teams In For Now

As we head into this final weekend of NCAA basketball leading up to the 2011 NCAA Tournament SB Nation’s bracketology reports have the St. Mary’s Gaels among the final four teams in the 2011 NCAA Tournament, benefiting greatly from the expansion of the tournament from 65 to 68 teams. The bracketology projection includes the Gaels in one of the new twelve seed matchups. They would face Clemson with the winner advancing to face No. 5 seed Xavier in Cleveland.

The Gaels actually have one more game to play today as they host Weber State in a game added in February. A win doesn’t really help the Gaels while a loss would destroy their NCAA tournament chances. I’d say that qualifies as a bad idea. Either way, the Gaels head into this weekend doing a whole lot of scoreboard watching. I happen to be down in Las Vegas for the Mountain West tournament and SMC is rooting like crazy for BYU to take care of New Mexico today. It’s one of many games SMC will be “enjoying” this weekend.
