That would leave the WCC with eight schools and without their two marquee basketball programs (Zags and BYU). The WCC is left with St. Mary’s, San Francisco, Santa Clara, UOP, Pepperdine, Loyola Marymount, San Diego, and Portland. All decent programs (especially St. Mary's) but you have to think they would need to add schools.
For expansion, if the WCC sticks with Christian based schools (even though they’ve had Nevada, UNLV and San Jose State as full members in the past), the obvious candidates would be Seattle, Denver, Cal Baptist, and Grand Canyon.
