Pac-10 gets six in

Seemed like the Pac-10 got a lot of respect, with WSU receiving a No. 4 seed — higher than most projections — and the two perceived bubble teams — Oregon and Arizona — getting a nine and a 10. And with UCLA a one and Stanford a three, that’s three of the top 16 teams from the Pac-10.
But that didn’t extend to Arizona State, which was left out despite finishing ahead of both Oregon and Arizona in the standings (getting the tiebreaker on the Ducks) and going 3-1 against those two head-to-head.
What obviously killed ASU is what we mentioned earlier — a strength of schedule of 296 and an RPI of 88. (What also killed the Sun Devils was a bad call in the Pac-10 Tournament).
Still, six bids ties the most in conference history; and both Oregon and Arizona get in with .500 or worse records in conference play, the first time that’s happened in the Pac-10.
It’s also the second straight year the Pac-10 has gotten six teams invited, the most-ever over a two-year span for the conference, official validation that the conference has never been perceived to be stronger. Now the task will be following that up with some deep runs in the NCAA Tournament.
CBI BIDS DELAYED — We’ve been told that the CBI field won’t likely be completed until later this evening, so official news on the Huskies may not come for a few more hours.
