Chris Dobbertean has been bust crunching the numbers and getting the order set for his latest bracketology for the 2012 NCAA Tournament, and unfortunately for the greater Northwest area their teams are dropping like flies as the possible squads making the big dance may have whittled down to just one.
That one team would be the Gonzaga Bulldogs, who remain a lock to make the tournament in the latest bracket. Interestingly enough they've fallen two spots since our last bracket was published, dropping from the No. 6 seed previously down to a No. 8 seed currently, possibly signaling a bit of a lack in confidence in the Bulldogs this season.
As for the Washington Huskies, their loss to Oregon State in the Pac-12 tournament will likely be the deal-sealer on their cinderella status, currently sitting as one of the 'next four out' sitting behind seven other teams that would make the tourney ahead of them. What a difference a game makes.
