Polar Bears

Last night 1,486 devoted Jayhawk fans made the trek through a snowstorm to watch Kansas get walloped by Baylor 76-37 inside Phog Allen Fieldhouse. The number 1 team in the land was unchallenged; Baylor made Kansas look bad both offensively and defensively. Not only did Kansas have no answer for Brittney Griner (who does?), but they also had no answer for anyone else on Baylor's team. This loss kicks Kansas out of the presumed at-large bids according to the College Women's Hoops S-Factor.

As I'm posting this in the afternoon, I already know there is going to be at least one game that messes with the S-Factor tomorrow. Arizona State just lost to Washington State. Arizona State is the weakest of the four Pac-10 teams projected by the S-Factor to make it into the tournament, and Washington State is one of the weakest major conference teams (second only to Oregon State). A loss to the Cougars certainly hurts Arizona State's chances at making the field of 64, although it remains to be seen if it hurts them that much.

Now in: Missouri State, Houston, Army
Now out: Vanderbilt, Kansas, American University

Conferences with multiple bids:
Big East: 9
ACC: 7
Big Ten: 7
Big 12: 5
SEC: 4
PAC-10: 4
Atlantic 10: 2
Conference USA: 2
Missouri Valley: 2
