The Pac-10 looks like a multibid conference after all. With an RPI ranking of 19, Cal (21--9 at week's end) has a great chance to get an at-large spot in the NCAAs even if it loses in the conference tournament; Arizona State (22--9) and Washington (21--9) also might have enough wins to be considered.... Don't expect Gonzaga coach Mark Few(below) to replace Ernie Kent at Oregon next season. A Creswell, Ore., native, Few will be the Ducks' top choice, but he is happy and secure in Spokane and has turned down other offers from power conferences.... Rick Majerus is doing a terrific coaching job with St. Louis, the second-most inexperienced team in Division I (11 of 12 players are freshmen or sophomores), which has won eight of its last 10 games to finish fourth in the Atlantic 10.
