Bracketology 2012: Washington Huskies Probably Play Themselves Out Of NCAA Tournament

The Washington Huskies are one of the weakest big conference champions in a long-time. Although they finished 14-4 in the Pac-12, they were projected as a lower seed for most of the past few weeks (Washington was an 11 seed according to Joe Lunardi and Chris Dobbertean of SB Nation).

They did themselves no favors on Thursday. Washington's loss to Oregon State will put them right back on the bubble, and they'll have to sweat out Selection Sunday. Washington has only one win against a top 50 RPI team (Oregon) with seven losses , the Huskies went 6-8 on the road. The loss revealed all the usual deficiencies: An inability to run halfcourt offense, Tony Wroten dominating the ball, and Lorenzo Romar not doing a great job adjusting within the game.

If Washington does make it, they might need to play an extra game. The Pac-12 had only a remote chance of being a one-bid league, but the loss by the Huskies might have greatly aided those chances.
