If BYU plays defense in every game the rest of the season like they did
last night, they will not lose another regular season game and should win the conference tournament as well. So of course in that case they will be in NCAA team.
I hope that kind of defensive effort becomes the new normal, but until it is repeated consistently it is an aberration. they will have to have more games like last night to say they are on track for an NCAA berth. The conference is so weak this year and BYU has essentially nothing from their non-conference schedule to build an at-large resume on. Would be awesome if they win out including the tournament, because they would not only get a birth but a respectable seed. But pump the brakes on saying BYU is on track for something based on one really good performance. If that game becomes a trend, then I will absolutely agree with you.
