    So Let's Talk Pac-12 Tourney Scenarios: Utah can finish anywhere from 8-11

    Utah has Colorado at home

    Cal 7 wins - @Ore @Oregon St
    Wazzu 6 wins - @Ariz @ASU
    Oregon St 5 wins - Stanford, Cal

    Most likely scenario:
    Utah loses to Colo
    Oregon St beats cal loses to stanford
    Cal loses to both oregon and oregon st
    Wazzu loses to Ariz and ASU

    Cal is the 8th seed
    Utah is the 9th seed (2-1) against wazzu and oregon st
    Wazzu is 10 beat oregon st
    Oregon St is the 11 seed

    If Utah beats colorado and just ore st doesnt sweep and wazzu doenst win a game
    Same seeds as above

    If Utah beats colorado and Ore st sweeps then
    then Ore St is the 8 seed
    Cal is the 9 seed
    Utah is the 10 seed

    I really don't think it matters, but in most tournaments, the 10 seed is better than the 8/9.

    only thing that matters to me is when they play.

    The Buffs are in a bit of a free-fall at the moment. 10-4 and first place outright to 10-7, and quite possibly missing a top 4 seed in Vegas.

    We are probably just what the doctor ordered for them. I think we can make it more competitive than it was in Boulder, though. It's senior night!

    I'm glad we get to honor Marc Renniger for all his contributions to the program. And people say Larry doesn't have any upperclassmen. Psh.

    Ok here are the seeding scenarios. Utah, Wazzu and Oreg st are 1 back of Cal
    If Utah, Oreg st (Cal), Wazzu (@ASU) and Utah all win Cal gets 8th seed, Utah 9th, Wazzu 10th, Oreg st 11th
    If Oreg st and Utah win Oreg st 9th seed Utah 10th Wazzu 11
    If Wazzu and Utah win Utah Utah 9th seed Wazzu 10th Oreg st 11
    If Utah, Ore st and wazzu all lost Utah 9th seed, wazzu 10th ore st 11

    Selfishly I want the 7-10 game because it starts at 6pm pacific. So I hope the most likely happens. Ore st wins and Wazzu loses which puts us at 10

    I can't help but wonder how much trouble CU is in. Was safely in the field before today. Could potentially get the 5 seed in Vegas and a matchup against the best last-place team in the country, perhaps ever. Could enter Selection Sunday on a five-game losing streak.

    In Lunardi's latest projection, I think they were in a 7/10 game with ETSU...and ETSU has been running through teams, so they are no joke. Would get SDSU with a win. Either way, CU looked like a team with a decent chance to be around on the second weekend and now they could easily be one and done.

    Timmy Allen named second team all Pac 12.

    Both Gach gets the player of the week award.

    The talk around town is about whether or not this team (assuming no transfers...fingers crossed) is a tournament team next year. We had one player on the 2nd team all-conference (and he's only a sophomore), but no one else on any lists (including honorable mentions or all freshman teams). Is that enough for me to get my hopes up?

    Gach, Carlson, and Jones do have all-conference honors potential. Maybe some of the newcomers do as well.

    Pelle Larsson is the leading everything for his U18 Swedish team. 16 pts, 7 reb & 6 assists.

    Listed at 6’4”.

    Caleb Lohner. Listed at 6’9”. 230–same size as Battin. But he has a 40” vertical.?

    14, 6 & 2.

    And Martinez is supposedly better than these 2.

    That is a ton of talent coming in.

    And if true that is the same vertical as Donovan Mitchell.

    For comparison, Marcus Williams was a 43.5”.

    And my vertical (standing which is much harder haha) is 18.5”

    Bill Riley mentioned yesterday that he spoke to a "west coast, high-level, D1" coach yesterday (could be larry for all I know) and that person told him that of the 3 incoming recruits, he likes Larsson the best.

    Our 14 for next season, in my predicted order of minutes per game:

    PGs: Jones
    Guards: Gach, Martinez, Plummer, Larsson, Brenchley, Wenzel
    Forwards: Allen, Jantunen, Lohner, Battin
    Centers: Carlson, Thione, Van Komen

    I think Jones, Gach, Allen, Jantunen, Carlson are all around 30 mpg. That leaves about 50 minutes per game to divvy up among the rest.

    You are 1 over—they only get 13 scholarships.

    Wenzel will need to be a Forward—not a great ball handler. Decent shooter.

    I know I'm one over, but we are one over right now. I just listed all 14.

    Holy Crap! 8-11 from 3 point line, with 18 left in the 2nd half?

    Hopefully that opens up the middle for Allen, Jantunen, and Carlson later.

    Ugh, that Both Gach turnover. We can't lose this game. Not after Plummer hits 11 threes. Here we go...last shot for OSU.

    Painful. 14 point lead in the 2nd half. Lead in the last few minutes. Turnover into open three. Just awful.
