Santa Clara -155
ANALYSIS: WCC teams are really going to want to beat up on BYU this season with the Cougars leaving the conference in the dust for the Big 12 starting next year. The big news here is that Santa Clara star guard Brandin Podziemski has been cleared to play after missing Saturday's win against Pacific in the concussion protocol. He's a WCC Player of the Year candidate, averaging 18.7 points, 8.5 rebounds and 3.5 assists, all team highs. teammate Keshawn Justice ranks third nationally in assist-to-turnover ratio (3.53) and leads the WCC and is 16th nationally with 56 3-pointers made. Carlos Stewart ranks 11th in the WCC in ppg (14.9) and second in FT percentage (84.9). Santa Clara leads the WCC and ranks 10th nationally in rebounds per game (40.3). No blue blood is going to want to see this team in the Big Dance. The Broncos are 6-0 ATS in their last six.
