could that happen again?
seems less likely since both those teams are improved
have to remember BYU especially has improved since they played UCLA almost 2 months ago
of course Beach is in if 2 out of 3 of Hawaii, UCLA, & Penn State when their conf tournaments
in a comparison of Penn State vs. Beach, Beach should get in if they beat Irvine next week. HOWEVER, since RPI is uses, the RPI metrics are more favorable to Penn State, plus I'd never trust a committee with the majority members in the east to select Long Beach, especially with the tourny close to Penn State.
so have to approach it as win the BWCT, and if not hope for the best
I think the NCAA would surely want the 4 teams that are so close UCLA, PSU, Hawaii, & Beach in the NCAA tournament
