Bracketology Predictions 2011: Joe Lunardi's Latest NCAA Tournament Bracket Projections

With just a few hours to go until Selection Sunday, bracketologists are making the final tweaks to their 2011 NCAA Tournament bracket projections. Joe Lunardi, ESPN’s resident bracketology expert, continues to shuffle his field around, changing seeds while making last-minute decisions on bubble teams throughout the day.

Lunardi’s full bracketology update can be found here. Let’s take a look at where the local schools are on Selection Sunday.

Washington Huskies: Washington is safely in after winning the Pac-10 Tournament on Sunday. The Huskies clearly improved their NCAA Tournament stock during the Pac-10 Tournament, winning three-straight games to bring home the title. Lunardi rewarded the Huskies, bumping them from a No. 10 seed to a No. 7 seed overnight. In his latest bracketology, Lunardi has the Huskies paired with Georgetown in the first round of the West regional, set to take place in Phoenix.

Gonzaga Bulldogs: The Zags are holding steady in the latest bracketology, but their opponent has changed. Previously, Gonzaga was a No. 9 seed and paired with Utah State. The Bulldogs are still a No. 9 seed on Selection Sunday, but are paired with Missouri in the Southeast regional. Lunardi projects the two teams will meet in Chicago in the first round.
