    While the bears are dominating, they are having some bad turnovers. Hope they don’t think they have this in the bag after the half and still come to play.

      That’s what makes O’Neill the idiot he is. The Beavs could still finish 17-13. They are not getting in the tourney with that record and ending the season with three straight losses. I would say they are in the NIT with today’s win and that is some measure of improvement.

        With Tulsa’s bad loss to Memphis today, I’d say right now the Beavers would be the final team in the field but a sweep in LA and they’d have to make it to at least the semis for a chance. I think they split in LA and win 1 game in the Pac-12 tourney and that will be enough to get them in. If they sweep in LA, they’re in. Huge week for the basketball program. Everyone in that program knows how huge these two road games are. Hopefully they’re embracing things and not putting too much pressure on themselves. A struggling USC team on Wednesday gives the Beavers a good shot at getting a quality road and putting them in a good spot.

    Man, if the Beavs scheduled those 2 extra games they’d be a lock right now (assuming they won them, which is a big assumption given this team’s inconsistency). I wonder if the committee takes that into account.

    This next week will be fascinating. I think they need to win 1 road game and possibly 1 in the pac tourney to make it a lock. Anything short of that they’re probably in that “first 4 out” camp. Amazing since their RPI and SOS are both so much better than a team like Arizona. The wins carry more weight than anything, if we’re being honest. It’s just like a Cy Young award — nobody is winning that with 12 wins even if they k 300 batters and have a 2 ERA.

    We are tied at 8-8 with USC and Stanford.
    Wednesday against USC will be a huge game, possible tie-breaker.

      hate to say it but we should probably hope that Oregon beats UCLA on Wednesday. If UCLA drops that game they cannot finish ahead of the Beavs in the standings. Or the Beavs could just do themselves a favor and beat them at Pauley. USC has not been playing well at all lately either and got absolutely demolished in both games in the bay area. Cal is looking scary good right now

        It’s kind of odd also that Stanford could still finish 10-8 and 17-12 and they are not in any conversations. It’s very, very unlikely because they would have to win two games in Arizona, but if they did they would end up in the upper half of the league.

          Stanford is only 5-11 vs Top 50 RPI teams. They don’t have any bad losses. What they lack is enough signature wins. They’re an NIT team at best.

          They could beat ASU in Tempe but I don’t think they will. No way they win at McKale

          Arizona would be a signature win, but too little to late and like we both said not likely. Turd is playing much better, the nice part of that is that it makes the Beavs road win look better.

    just back from the game. Beavs did what they needed to do. Put away an inferior opponent. Too bad they didn’t get the opportunity to play that team on the road this season. Was awesome to see GP2 break out the retired number 20 to honor his dad in what may be his final game at Gill. Tried to get a pic with GP after the game but missed out. He couldn’t stick around very long. Oh well. Need to split with the LA schools to have a realistic shot or win the conference tournament. I don’t see that happening though. Cal and Utah are playing their best of the season and right now that’s my Pac-12 tournament championship game prediction. If there’s some NIT games at Gill we will be there.

    RPI dropped to 32 after this game. Just playing a team with an RPI around 200 will do that even if you win.

    Coupled with the rest of this weekends results, Beavs are now tied for 6th with USC and Stanford

    Won despite some terrible free throw shooting. 7 for 17! That kind of performance won’t get them to the tourney. You know WSU is that bad when you can shoot 41% at the free throw line and win the game by 20.

    USC has lost 5 of their past 6. Losing to the Beavs would actually put them on the bubble.

    Looking through USC’s recent box scores and their losses, the common theme is scoring early. In the last three games, USC has given up 40 points in the first half and eventually lost by double digits. One was a home loss to Utah.

    A cold start to the game will doom the Beavs on Wed. Play like they did vs Kansas and USC will not be able to come back.

      I’ve said for a while now USC is the easier road game. USC is overrated and UCLA is underrated/under performed all year. UCLA is more dangerous and a worse matchup, imo.

        the reason UCLA has underwhelmed/under performed and will continue to do so is Steve Alford. With the talent they have there is no reason they should be in 10th place. I agree UCLA is a worse match up. Neither game will be easy. Much like the road trip to the bay area I’m not expecting them to win either game so if they manage to steal one that would be gravy. Much better to go into the conference tournament that way than being swept on the road.

        Game I am most interested in this next week(besides the Beavs) is Cal at Arizona.

      No disrespect, but you have to bring a little research into the conversation……there have been six or seven 16 win teams that have made the tournament in the recent past. Georgia did it in 2001 with a 16-14 and it was an at large bid, not a conference tournament championship.

          I think the main point was he’s wrong and winning 20 games is not a necessity to receive an at large berth. More than one example was given and history clearly shows this

          I checked….7 teams with 16 wins were “at large berths”….meaning they did not win the conference tournament. USC got in, I believe in 2011, with a 19-14 record.

      Interesting stats, but also not correct. You’re 0-2. Oklahoma STATE was dusted by Oklahoma in their first conf tournament game. They also only went 8-10 in conference games. The mighty Big-12 also only had two teams advance past the first weekend and both teams lost in the sweet sixteen. So much for being the toughest conference

    Beavs in as a play into the 11 seed vs Florida in Joe Lunardi’s bracket which was the only major bracket picker to have the Beavs out. Odd place though because the winner plays Arizona but that doesn’t really matter right now.

    They are pretty much in everyone else’s brackets.
    http://www.bracketmatrix.com/

    So I think one more win puts them in. 2 gets them off the bubble.

      Lunardi has them as a 11 seed but I think they’re a 10 seed in the committee’s eyes. A split and winning 1 game in Vegas is all they need to make it but getting an LA sweep should be the team’s goal so they can avoid any chance of playing in a first four game. They’ve struggled on the road but they played well at Stanford and if things broke right late against Cal they could have had a chance to steal that one. So, overall they’re playing better on the road than they were on some earlier trips. Oregon took it to them but they’ve done that to everybody in Eugene. USC and UCLA are both struggling. A lot of guys on USC’s team are talking like a team who has lost confidence in themselves and UCLA is a mess. Big chance for Oregon State to get a couple big wins and get themselves in the tournament.

    Baseball weekend recap,

    Pitching was much better this weekend. Need to cut down on walks. Especially in the bullpen. They have 25 walks and 4 HBP vs 25 Ks on the year. That’s unacceptable for relievers. It’ll lose a lot of games.

    I expect guys who are struggling in the bullpen to still get a few more shots in the non conference. But once conference play starts, they won’t been seen again. Seems like Heimlich will end up being the Saturday or Sunday guy.

    Hitting continued against weak pitching.

    Wonder when Larnach, Hickey and Martinek will make their debuts. They should add a lot to the team.

      How bad was the pitching the Beavers faced over the first 8 games? We have 8 guys batting .333 or better. This seems like the strongest offensive team we have seen over the last decade.

        There are no black holes in the lineup like the past few years. It does not appear that one or two guys have to carry the offense and there is protection from slumps by having depth to rotate guys in and out. If Elliot Cary comes back healthy, it could be really something.

          Seems like that last few years the Beavs struggled to hit in the post season, while the teams they played were able to nickle and dime them. They say that good pitching beats good hitting. I’m not so sure. You don’t have to hit the long ball; just keep stuff in play. Move guys over. Personally, I’m not down with the whole sacrifice strategy. Outs are bad. Do what you can to avoid them.

    Might as well brush up on tie breaking procedures………….Per the Pac-12 media guide

    1. Two team tie……………….Head to head results. If a tie is not broken (say teams A and B went 1-1 against each other) then it goes to head to head results against other opponents starting at the top of the standings and continuing down the standings with head to head results until the tie is broken (Teams A and B both went 0-2 vs Team C which finished in 1st place. Team A went 1-0 vs Team D which finished in 2nd place, Team B went 0-1 vs Team D. Team A would then win the tie breaker).

    2. Multiple team tie. The combined records vs the tied opponents. Team A went 2-1 vs Teams B and C, While teams B and C went 2-2 vs the two combined opponents. Team A is then awarded the highest remaining seed, then the two team tie breaking procedure is used between teams B and C to determine those seeds.

    Clear as mud?
