[ANALYSIS]Teams from the Pac-12 and WCC have won nine Division I men's titles and finished second 11 other times, but the conferences had to settle for one team apiece in the 2011 NCAA Division I Tournament. Their respective conference champions, UCLA and St. Mary's, are headed to the postseason. Cases could be made for Washington and Portland, but no other Pac-10 or WCC team seeking an at-large bid won a non-conference game against a tournament team.

Washington went 5-1-2 against non-conference opponents and beat Loyola, Ill., which won the Horizon League, and UAB, the Conference USA runner-up.

Portland, which beat Washington, had wins over Big Ten champion Northwestern, UAB and St. Mary's (twice) and went 5-2-1 against non-conference foes.

San Diego State, which competes in men's soccer in the Pac-12, was 6-1-2 in non-conference play but only one win was over a team with a record better than .500 (Penn at 8-7-2).

The WCC's Santa Clara was 4-1-3 in non-conference play but didn't beat a team with a record above .500.

Neither conference holds a tournament for men's or women's soccer.

    It seems like the committee got more than a few things wrong. I agree more with this article about the selection process: http://bebetter-sportsmedia.blogspot.com/2011/11/ncaa-mens-soccer-selection-committee.html
