It's proving time.
Teams around the country are now in the thick of their conference schedules, attempting to move up the standings to set-up successful runs in March.
Washington (11-7) and Washington St.'s (10-8) subpar records suggest both teams will need to dominate the rest of their Pac-12 schedules to improve their tournament resumes. Cameron Dollar's Seattle University Redhawks (5-12) has 11 games left and will try its best to get over .500.
Gonzaga is currently the state's only team deserving of a tournament bid right at this moment. The Bulldogs (15-3) are now 5-1 in the West Coast Conference and have enough talent to keep on winning games against WCC opposition.
