NIT Bracketology Has St. Mary's & USC Potentially #1 Seeds, Cal & Washington State Also In Mix

Bay Area's own St. Mary's Gaels and the Pac-10 stalwart USC Trojans could be in the NCAA tournament, but their fate is up in the air. If they don't end up making it though, their likely destination is back home, to host the National Invitation Tournament in their arenas for the next few weeks. They are projected as number one seeds by multiple sites that track NIT bracketology. Both NIT-ology and the Bracket Project have USC as a 1 seed, and the Bracket Project has St. Mary's as a one seed too.

Of course, their fates will have to wait for the NCAA Tournament Selection Committee, who could take one and/or the other.

The California Golden Bears and the Washington St. Cougars are almost certainly going to the NIT. Wazzu had a disappointing season, but Klay Thompson is expected to suit up at least a few more games as a Cougar, as Washington State is projected a two seed by NIT-ology and a three seed by the Bracket Project. Cal is seeded fourth by NIT-ology and fifth by the Bracket Project, and neither team seems in danger of hitting the somewhat less notable NTI bubble.
