Maybe a Cal win at Stanford on Saturday will impress ESPN Bracketologist Joe Lunardi, whose latest projected NCAA tournament bracket has the Cardinal as his fifth alternate for the field but leaves the Bears out of the discussion.
Lunardi projects four Pac-12 teams in his latest NCAA field.
Saint Mary’s is listed as the fourth team in the “first four out,” and Stanford is first among the “next four out.”
Arizona is seeded No. 2, UCLA and Oregon both No. 7, and Colorado No. 8.
