UW Huskies Open Pac-12 Tourney Wednesday Vs. Oregon St.
Following a bitter loss at home to end their 2017-18 Pac-12 schedule against the Oregon Ducks, the Washington Huskies Men's basketball team, more than likely, needs to win the conference tournament in order to secure a bid in the NCAA field of 68.
Washington (#7), whom ended their season at 20-11 and stumbled their way through their last eight games going 3-5, open the Pac-12 tournament at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vagas tomorrow evening at 6:00 p.m. against tenth-seeded Oregon St. The game can be heard live in Central Washington on 1460 ESPN Yakima. First year play-by-play broadcaster Tony Castricone will have the call, beginning with the pre-game at 5:30 p.m.
The Dawgs need a strong showing to even have a shot at getting an at-large bid to the Big Dance and even then, according to ESPN in-house 'bracketologist' Joe Lunardi, that may not be even close to enough.
If Washington wins tomorrow, they would then face #2 Southern Cal on Thursday night, also tipping at 6:00 p.m.
"Selection Sunday" begins at 3:00 p.m this weekend. Make sure you are registered for the "Million Dollar College Hoops Bracket Challenge". Highest point total wins a 55" TV and $100 gift card from Yakima Steak Company!
