Bracketology Predictions 2011: NCAA Tournament Bracket Projections Ahead Of Selection Sunday

The Washington Huskies and Gonzaga Bulldogs are safely in the NCAA Tournament, awaiting their seeding on Selection Sunday. For both the Huskies and Bulldogs, it's no longer a matter of if, but where, as each took home an automatic NCAA Tournament bid with conference tournament wins this past week. Now that we know they're in, it's time to take a look at the latest bracketology predictions to get a better idea of where each may be playing next week in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.

Washington Huskies: According to Joe Lunardi's latest bracketology at ESPN, the Huskies are a 10 seed, paired against a seven seed in the first round. Lunardi has the Huskies facing the Georgetown Hoyas in the first round of the West regional. The better news for Washington, however, is the location. Lunardi projections the Huskies and Hoyas will play in Denver to open the NCAA Tournament, a short jaunt from Seattle compared to other possible locations.

Gonzaga Bulldogs: Gonzaga faces a tougher draw if Lunardi's bracketology holds true. The Zags are on the dreaded 8/9 seed line, pegged as a nine seed in the Southwest regional. Lunardi has the Bulldogs paired with Utah State in the first round, set to take place in Tulsa.

The projections go out the window as the field of 68 is announced on Selection Sunday, live on CBS. Stay with our bracketology StoryStream throughout the day for the latest updates leading up to the NCAA Tournament selection show at 3 p.m.
