Analysis
There's only one current Top 25 foe here-- Kansas State--but two other road games will pose challenges. St.�Mary's isn't as tough as it was when Ernie Kent took the Gaels to the NCAAs in 1997, but it's the second-best team in the WCC. And while Utah is no longer the Sweet�16-caliber club it was in 2005, the Utes are a terrific three-point shooting team (sixth in the nation last year at 41.1%), and they have a 7' 1" NBA prospect in Luke Nevill.
