Bracketology: Washington Stays Steady After Strong Week

Washington was able to rebound with wins at home against both California and Stanford. Some people thought that a three-game losing streak was the end of the world for the Huskies, but today's projections show that they are in a great position right now, and with a win at Arizona this weekend, they can get themselves in an even better spot.

Meanwhile Washington State split the games against Stanford and California at home. The loss to Stanford moved them from all but one projection this week and puts them in a position to get some work done. As with Washington, a win in Tuscon against the nationally ranked Arizona Wildcats would put them in a great position. If they can pull of the upset on Thursday, look for the Cougars to move their way back into most projections.

For Gonzaga, they were able to pick up the road sweep against Loyola Marymount and Pepperdine. Up next for the Bulldogs are home rematches with Santa Clara and San Francisco, two teams who beat Gonzaga in California just a few weeks ago. After that is a game that could make or break the Zags' at-large bid: A road game against conference leader St. Mary's.
