From SI.com: "Now that Gonzaga is atop the West Region, it’s going to be hard to knock it back down to a No. 2 seed. The Bulldogs have cruised to an 8–0 record in the West Coast Conference, with their slimmest victory thus far being by 13 points at San Francisco, the league’s second-best team. If the Bulldogs win out, nothing Michigan State, Michigan or Kentucky does will matter. North Carolina could theoretically pass Gonzaga in résumé strength if it, say, wins two of its three games with Duke and Virginia and then wins the ACC tournament, but that would likely result in either the Blue Devils or Cavaliers, not the Bulldogs, falling off the top line. In short, Gonzaga is going to have to lose at least once, and possibly more than that, to not be the No. 1 seed in the West Region."

Gonzaga takes on a good San Francisco team at home that is 17-5 Straight Up Thursday.

For North Carolina, Miama is next on tap Saturday.

From SI.com: "Louisville and upending the Cardinals, 79–69. The Tar Heels, too, have won five straight games and go into this week at 7–1 in the conference, tied with Duke a half-game behind Virginia. The Tar Heels still have three games remaining with those two teams (two against Duke, one against Virginia), so it’s safe to say tougher days loom ahead. It’s likely that their performance in those three games will determine the conventional wisdom surrounding their Final Four bona fides heading into the tournament, but it’s safe to say that they’ve separated themselves from the rest of the conference. They can do so even further this week with home games against NC State and Miami."
