The Washington Huskies continue to boost their case for the NCAA Tournament as Selection Sunday nears, winning two consecutive Pac-10 Tournament games to reach the finals. The Huskies appear to be safely in the NCAA Tournament after an impressive performance at Staples Center. On Saturday, though, the Huskies can ensure themselves a spot in the Big Dance with a win over Arizona in the Pac-10 Championship with the automatic bid on the line.
The latest SB Nation bracketology arrived this morning following a long night of college basketball on Friday. As it stands now, the Huskies are on the 11-seed line, set to take on St. John’s in the first round. It’s the location that should have Huskies fans excited: SB Nation projections Washington will play its first round game in Denver.
While both teams in the Pac-10 Tournament championship — Arizona and Washington — appear to be safely in the tournament, there’s still plenty on the line. Both teams are playing for a higher seed and Arizona, according to SB Nation’s Chris Dobbertean, is playing for a top-four seed.
The Pac-10 Tournament concludes with Arizona facing Washington (CBS, 6 p.m. ET). The Wildcats have a shot at a top four seed with a victory.
