Gonzaga, Washington Selected To Sports Illustrated's Top 15

Sports Illustrated's 2010-11 Men's College Basketball Preview will hit newstands on Wednesday with Gonzaga University and the University of Washington ranked 14th and 15th respectively.

While the Pac-10 and WCC only placed one (current) team each in the Top 20, the Pac-10 has three additional teams in their Top 50: Arizona (41), Arizona State (45), and UCLA (49).

Future WCC addition BYU also came in at #17 with senior guard Jimmer Fredette being selected to the SI All-America team selected by Seth Davis and Luke Winn.

For whatever it's worth with the still open possibility that Seattle University gets invited to the WAC, Utah State represents the current WAC at #50 and recent WAC addition Texas State comes in at #64 to round out SI's projected tournament field.
