Breakdown of Western Conferences:
Gonzaga: 2-seed playing in SLC.
BYU in First 4 Out
SMC in First 4 Out
New Mexico: 4-seed
Colorado State: 9-seed
Boise State in First 4 Out
Wyoming in Next 4 Out
Arizona State: 12 seed (last 4 in)

Every other Western Conference has only the auto-bid, with no teams mentioned in First 4 Out or Next 4 Out.
Lunardi continues to project both BYU and SMC strong enough that it looks like if one can sweep the other in the last regular season meeting and in the WCC tournament, they should be in pretty good position. As always, a sweep of the "other" school and a home win against Gonzaga would lock up a bid for either of them.
