WEST COAST: After three seasons in which they threatened to turn the NCAA tournament upside down, and a fourth in which they complained of a lack of respect in a low seeding they received last year, only to lose, Gonzaga now has to hope for the mercy of the tournament selection committee. The Bulldogs fell, 72-63, in the WCC Tournament final at the "Slim Gym" (ie., the Jenny Craig Arena) to San Diego, but the combination of an RPI rating of 42 and the sudden departure of Fresno State and Georgia from tournament consideration should enable Gonzaga to receive an at-large bid. Jason Keep scored 18 points to lead the Torreros, who had to overcome a 15-3 deficit to start the game.
