Basketball: Bears vs. Gaels a possibility?

ESPN bracketologist Joe Lunardi is projecting — at least today — a matchup lots of Bay Area basketball fans have long anticipated: Cal vs. Saint Mary’s in the NCAA tournament.

Lunardi has the seventh-seeded Gaels facing the No. 10 Bears in a first-round matchup at Omaha, Neb. Looming in the second round would be No. 2 Missouri.

By the way, Cal vs. SMC in the NCAAs is not unprecedented: On the way to winning their 1959 national title, the Bears beat the Gaels 66-46 in the regional final at San Francisco.

    I don’t like the ominous red down arrow next to our name. CBS discuses Washington wondering if they have any quality wins at all but mentioning their 17 pt loss to – umm was it South Dakota State .. maybe SD State at home.

    Notre Dame doesn’t deserve a 5 seed. We could beat them.
