After their semifinal win over San Diego yesterday, BracketBot chooses to push St Mary’s over the at-large line for just today – their final in the West Coast Conference is today, and it’s against Gonzaga. If the Gaels play Gonzaga close, I could see them getting an at-large bid as a result, but most likely, a loss in this game is going to mean they end up on the wrong side of the line. Still, BracketBot cares most about today, and I think if Selection Sunday were today they’d (barely) get in.
