Bracketology Predictions 2011: Washington A No. 7 Seed In Jerry Palm's NCAA Tournament Bracket Projections

How big was the Pac-10 Tournament win for the Washington Huskies? After floating around on the bubble last week, Washington has seen its seed jump following its win over Arizona on Saturday. Before the win, Washington was widely seen as a No. 10 seed, but after securing an automatic NCAA Tournament bid, the Huskies are moving on up.

Earlier this morning, we checked out Joe Lunardi’s latest bracketology. Lunardi moved the Huskies up from No. 10 to No. 7 in his Selection Sunday morning, all on the back of the Pac-10 Tournament win. But Lunardi wasn’t alone as many bracketologists followed suit.

CBS Sports’ Jerry Palm bumped the Huskies up, as well, moving them to the No. 7 seed line. Palm has the Huskies in the Southwest region, set to square-off against Tennessee in the first round. The news on the travel front isn’t as good, though, as Palm projects the Huskies will head to Chicago in the first round.
