Bracketology 2012: Saint Mary's, Cal Representing Bay Area In Latest College Basketball Reports

The NCAA tournament is just under two months away and bracketology reports are starting to heat up. SB Nation released their latest NCAA Basketball Bracketology report and they have Saint Mary's and California representing the Bay Area. Saint Mary's is listed as a six seed facing Cincinnati in the West region. Cal is listed as ten seed facing Indiana in the South region.

SMC is in a position where they can boost their potential seeding in a solid way over the next few weeks. The completed a season sweep of BYU on Saturday and get a chance to do the same at Gonzaga in two weeks. If they complete the season sweep, they very well could run the table in conference play. A season sweep of WCC play would leave them 27-2 heading into the conference tournament. Add in a postseason conference title and they could start dreaming of four and three seeds.

Cal is tied for first in the Pac-12 with a 7-2 conference record, while sitting at 17-5 overall. They are in a dog-fight in the Pac-12, which could be lucky to get more than two teams in the tournament this year. The Bears should be able to get over the 20-win mark, but a few extra wins would go a long to securing a bid in case they fall short in the postseason tournament.
