206 Clicks: Huskies On The Bubble, These Teams Losing Will Help Tournament Chances

  • Pac 12 Tournament Bracket, Quarterfinals 2012: Arizona Knocks Off UCLA--After Thursday's disappointing loss to the Oregon State Beavers, Washington has to wait three days to find out whether they'll be playing a meaningful game next week. All Husky fans need to be cheering for California to win the Pac-12 tournament. The Pac-12 at this point looks like a two-bid league, someone other than California getting the automatic bid hurts the Huskies' chances. ESPN's Joe Lundari has Washington as one of the last four teams in. Other bubble teams still in action? Texas, Tennessee, NC State, Arizona, Saint Joseph's. If you're a Husky fan, here's your rooting interest for Friday:
  1. Need Oregon State to beat Arizona in the Pac-12 semifinals.
  2. Need Missouri to beat Texas in the Big-12 semifinals.
  3. Need Ole Miss to beat Tennessee in the SEC quarterfinals.
  4. Need Maryland to beat NC State in ACC quarterfinals.
  5. Need Saint Bonaventure to beat Saint Joseph's in the Atlantic-10 quarterfinals.
  6. All consensus-tournament teams/favorites need to win out.

  • If you want to read about the loss, Montlake Madness provides some solid analysis.
  • Gonzaga is after a polish basketball prospect named Przemek Karnowski. The Slipper Still Fits discusses his recruitment with a scout.
  • The Associated Press wrote a nice short feature on Isaiah Thomas. Sure, the Huskies could have used his leadership this season, but I'm glad everything is working out for him. Will he have a more successful NBA career than Nate Robinson?
  • The Mariners slaughtered the Cubs and danced in their blood according to Lookout Landing...and Dustin Ackely hit a home run! Seattle takes on the Arizona Diamondbacks at 12:05 p.m. today. In the bad news of Thursday, catcher Adam Moore broke his right wrist and will likely miss the rest of Spring Training.
  • Let me leave you with a highlight video of Tucker Haymond. Haymond is from the class of 2013 and is one of the top basketball recruits in the state. He currently holds offers from Western Michigan and Seattle U.
