As we enter the final two days of conference championships leading up to Selection Sunday approaches. Bracketology reports are posting fast and furious in advance of the 2011 NCAA Tournament and the St. Mary’s Gaels are hanging around for now. SB Nation released their latest bracketology report and they once again have Saint Mary’s in the 12 vs. 12 “play-in” game. They have St. Mary’s taking on Georgia with the winner advancing to face the fifth seeded Arizona Wildcats. If Arizona wins today’s Pac-10 Championship game, I’d imagine the Wildcats would climb a bit.
Over at ESPN, Joe Lunardi has released his latest bracketology report and he has St. Mary’s a little bit safer. Lunardi includes the Gaels as an 11 seed facing the sixth seeded West Virginia Mountaineers in the Tampa pod. The winner of that game would face the winner of Florida and Indiana State. Although Lunardi does not have St. Mary’s as a last four in, they’ve got to be real close.
