3.1: Chronicle Live -- Saint Mary's vs. Cal NCAA Tournament resume
How awesome college basketball now and we'll do local style out of pac twelve -- out -- get it done on the West Coast Conference at Saint Mary's College but let's compare and contrast. Can you choose one over the other as to which is the best in the Bay Area let's bring in our best in cal coming sticks around sort of drew Schiller. I wouldn't open with you true right now Q compare those two let's let's open up this way. Which of those two has the stronger resonate for this season playing Saint Mary's for sure that when you look at their wins in conference play one against in -- that -- BYU twice. So Americans have a very difficult nonconference schedule they lost to Baylor. Earlier on in the season I think it was Smart by coach and in not to schedule as tough a non conference last year they lost to San Diego State and BYU to vote against the sweet sixteen. And also lost to Vanderbilt in Utah State and that really cost them. It had been in say term as at large birds of this year I in the position themselves better. But to get an at large berth should they not win the WCC -- this -- that's my next question either of these teams are they are locks to get into. NCAA tournament -- think a lot Saint Mary's is closer I agree would you they're better team just from just in Zagat alone -- have a -- like that. You beat him fall apart at the end we've seen it before where you like and whether you like we're a team is it than they have a couple. Bad losses things that don't look good on the -- other teams get hot -- -- -- for you IDC -- is probably -- probably. Cal's probably OK but he and they lose -- Stanford and they lose in the in the first round -- that as -- whatever around the going to be right by it. That's not the looks -- it. I would say both are okay but you don't wanna just be okay you wanna be solid going in Saint Mary's after all the time that they've been hurt. At the end I think sooners especially want to go out. On an upswing -- another problem for cows that they play Stanford this weekend -- because of their bad loss to Utah last week there RPI dropped significantly so even if cal does beat Stanford. It's not even really consider that bit of the when India really got a lot terrible they lose and if and then to have lost two of the last three right that would be worse.
Drew Shiller and Tim Kawakami agree that currently Saint Mary's has a better tournament resume than the Bears.
