The bubble shrank when Saint Mary’s upset Gonzaga on Tuesday night. The Gaels ended up beating the Bulldogs by a surprising 13 points and are back in the NCAA Tournament after a one year absence. There are not many opportunities left for the bubble to shrink, but unlike most seasons, the Pac-12 only has two teams that should be in the tournament. Washington and Arizona State are two of the four teams left in the conference tournament, but those two teams have been susceptible this season and it would not be a big surprise if somebody else wins the Pac-12 tournament and gets a third team into the NCAA Tournament.
