Pac-12 Tournament 2012 Bracket Reactions to the Quarterfinals

If you didn't watch the insanity that was the Oregon State Beavers upset of the Washington Huskies, take a few moments out of your day to read the thread on the Dawg Pound. But the story of the day will be missed free throws. The Huskies were downright abysmal from the charity stripe, and none more so then super frosh Tony Wroten who missed four straight in the closing minute.

The comments really can go on forever. Although Wroten had a solid game (aside from the finish), it isn't hard to find the goat for the Huskies in this game, or people that are skeptical about their chances on getting picked come Selection Sunday.

We may have the distinction of being the first Power 6 Conference regular season title winner to be left out of the NCAA since the field expanded to 64 teams. What an honor.

Romar said Wroten's final four shots looked good, with the exception of the second to last attempt. Other thought they looked a bit rushed. Whatever the case, the results were symptomatic for a UW team that struggled at the line all season. The Huskies ranked 11th in the conference with a 61.8 shooting percentage on free throws. Today they were 46.2 percent (12 of 26) at the charity stripe.

Washington, even with the Pac-12 regular-season title, must now sweat out Selection Sunday. The Huskies’ nonconference resume has nothing to shout about. The worst home loss -- a blowout to South Dakota State -- might look better now that the Jackrabbits won the Summit League title. But that’s still a team from the Summit going into Seattle and getting a win.

Needless to say this was a devastating loss for a team that already had a shaky resume in a conference that has a shaky standing amongst the national opinion. Unfortunately for Husky fans everywhere, they find themselves on the wrong side of Selection Sunday this year.
