Happy to be home: Standings say UW still in Pac-10 race

There’s no better cure for a team that has problems on the road than returning home for four straight games.
Coach Lorenzo Romar said the Huskies “have little room for error” and it would seem as if they need to win every game during their two-week homestand to preserve postseason tournament chances. Fortunately for UW, it is 12-1 at Hec Ed.
Things may appear bleak for Washington, which had high hopes of repeating as Pac-10 champion and making a deep run in the NCAA tournament, but a close inspection of the conference standings suggest UW still has a chance to get back into the title race.
The Pac-10 home and away records, with the remaining H-A games in parenthesis.
CAL 4-1 1-1 (4-7)
ASU 2-1 2-2 (6-5)
USC 3-1 1-2 (5-6)
AZ 1-1 3-2 (7-4)
Stan 4-0 0-3 (5-6)
UCLA 3-2 1-1 (4-7)
WSU 2-2 2-2 (5-5)
UW 3-1 0-4 (5-5)
OSU 1-1 1-4 (7-4)
UO 0-3 2-2 (6-5)
Only Arizona has winning road record and the unbalanced schedule seems to favor the Wildcats and Oregon State, while slowing down Cal and UCLA.
FIELDS WINS PAC-10 PLAYER OF THE WEEK:
