BYU is picked to win the West Coast Conference tournament and would be better off doing so rather than leaving their NCAA hopes in the hands of the Selection Committee.

I have as many conference tournament championships as Dave Rose does.

Its been over a decade since byu won a conference tournament.

I think that tells us how likely it is byu will win this tournament.

Its choke after choke for byu in their conference tournaments.

And considering the wcc is a bad league, that says something

BYU will hopefully give a strong showing no matter what, and at least make it to the finals.

Most bracketologists project BYU in the tournament as long as the Cougars make it to the WCC championship game. Of course, winning the championship game would eliminate any chance of BYU not being invited to the Big Dance.
