Golden Nuggets: A 24-win, Top-40 RPI Cal Team Will Go to the NCAA Tournament, Right?

Despite having 24 wins and the best resume--by far--of all Pac 12 teams, Cal is not a lock for the NCAA tournament. We should go the tournament, but it's going to be a long wait until this afternoon's selection show. Until then we can take solace (or maybe not) in the most recent NCAA tournament projections.

Best RPI in the Pac-12, but Cal couldn't win the regular season title OR the conference tourney. That says something. So does the lack of Top 50 wins. One of the first four teams out of the field.

After the jump the women's team locks up a 6/7 seed with a strong showing in the Pac-12 tournament and rugby returns to its dominating ways.
