BYU Hoops Temperature Check: Feb 7

It's been a few weeks since we checked in with bracketologists and experts to see where BYU basketball stands. As the Cougars approach the home stretch, here are the current prognostications:

CHRIS DOBBERTEAN, SB NATION

12-seed v. (5) Florida State, and is the very last at-large to not have to play in a play-in game. (Last week: First Four Out).

JOE LUNARDI, ESPN.com

11-seed v. (6) Louisville in Albuquerque. (Last week: First Four Out)

JERRY PALM, CBS SPORTS

12-seed play-in game (Last Four In), v. (12) Seton Hall for right to play (5) Indiana. (Last week: Out)

ANDY GLOCKNER, SI.com

11-seed v. (6) Vanderbilt in Albuquerque. (Last week: First Four Out)

MID-MAJOR TOP 25

#11 (Last week: #14)

*****

Well, beating Gonzaga has BYU's profile high enough to get back in the tournament. Jerry Palm thinks BYU is in "last four in" range, meaning the Cougars would have to win a play-in game. Chris Dobbertean thinks BYU barely escapes that fate, while Glockner and Lunardi think BYU deserves an 11-seed. The definite message is that the Cougars can still get in, and not all was lost in the defeat to Loyola Marymount -- but the Cougars are still on the bubble.

Any loss besides at Gonzaga almost definitely means, it would appear, a WCC tourney title would be necessary. Time to take care of business.
