By beating Gonzaga last night, Saint Mary's improved its projected NCAA tournament seed from 8.9 to 7.8, per BPI. The Gaels are also more likely (27%) than any D-I team to win all of their remaining regular season games.

Moving forward, a few interesting proposals will go to a vote of the Division I Council in April. Included is one that would turn the spring evaluation period in football recruiting (April 15-May 31) into a contact period, during which coaches could visit with prospects at their high schools. Another proposal would allow coaches to talk publicly (on social media and to the media) about recruits. Also, there's a proposal designed to ease the requirements for players seeking an extension of their five-year clock.

Nothing controversial on the agenda for Power 5 legislators at the NCAA convention autonomy business session this morning. Expected to pass is a rule that would require schools to provide medical care to student-athletes with athletically related injuries — for up to two years after their collegiate playing careers. Another proposal calls for a mandated, three-day break from men's basketball activities, with some conditions, for every team during the December holiday break.

Huge resume win for Saint Mary's over Gonzaga. The Gaels went totally off the radar after losing to Washington State and Georgia — but have now won 13 in a row. If they avoid bad losses, they're going to be in the NCAA Tournament again.
