Trap game! On Jan. 7, 2005, St. Mary's blitzed the Unnamed Major Program 89-81, and stole many of the RPI points they needed to sneak in as a tournament at-large. SMC would go on to lose in the WCC title game - their resumé is slightly worse this year, due to a four-game losing skid to high-RPI teams back in early December. But will the WCC's new ESPN Big Monday gig give Randy Bennett's squad the juice they need to get over the at-large hump should they repeat their run to the title game? The 6-5 Gaels have beaten Nevada and TCU in the past week, and are hungry for some UMPFN.
