Husky Men's Basketball

Tough road to tourney

I’ll start this morning by linking my story in today’s paper on UW’s NCAA Tournament chances.
I talked this week with three of the more respected bracketologists in the game, including Joe Lunardi of ESPN, and Jerry Palm and Ken Pomeroy, who each run their own web sites.
The general consensus is the strength of UW’s schedule the rest of the way makes it possible for the Huskies to get in if they could win six of their last eight. But they all also agreed that the way UW has played of late leaves little real reason to think the Huskies can do it.
One note that didn’t make it in the story was whether the fact UW has four losses by 20 or more points would hurt them — meaning, is a blowout worse than a buzzer-beater?
“RPI doesn’t factor that in, but subjectively in the committee’s mind, it factors in a little bit,” said Pomeroy. “If they end up being a bubble team, they are going to look at the fact that there might have been a few games where they weren’t competitive. But you can consider scenarios where if they got hot and won road games at Pitt and Oregon, it would change that perception.”
