With the St. Bonaventure Bonnies dismantling the Xavier Musketeers 67-56 to take the title in the Atlantic 10 Championship game Sunday afternoon, the chances of the Washington Huskies making the 2012 NCAA tournament became that much worse, leaving them dangerously close to falling off the bubble.
Washington was looking great in the Pac-12 Championship until they fell apart late in the game against the Oregon State Beavers Thursday, leaving them on the outside looking in in most bracketologists predictions, including SB Nation's Chris Dobbertean.
The selection committee for the tournament usually shines in the favor of regular season conference champions, especially from the big six conferences, which is one big thing they have going for them. But with their weak schedule (no victoires over teams with an RPI of 50 or higher) and high number of other schools with similar outputs, you can easily make a case for them not making the tourney as well.
With the Selection Show only a few hours away, just where will the Huskies end up? The NCAA or NIT tournament?
