The latest news and analysis on Husky men's hoops.

Looking ahead at Pac-10 tourney seeds and morning links

If the Pac-10 Tournament began today, Washington would be the No. 3 seed and play sixth-seeded Oregon State in the second round. If the Huskies advanced to the semifinals, they would meet the Arizona State-Stanford winner.
Washington State, Oregon, UCLA, Arizona and California would be on the other side of the bracket. The Bears clinched the tournament’s top seed.
Before looking at the conference games from Saturday, we should note the Huskies’ strength of schedule received a boost last night when No. 22 Texas A&M dropped No. 21 Texas 74-58.
AROUND THE PAC-10:
— Our game story from Washington’s 59-52 victory focused on Isaiah Thomas and Matthew Bryan-Amaning.
— Here’s a Wazzu perspective on the Cougars narrow defeat.
— California gave coach Mike Montgomery a wonderful 63rd birthday present and gave their seniors who played their final game at Haas Pavilion a nice parting gift. The Bears won at least a share of the Pac-10 title and continue to separate from the pack.
It’s just a guess, but Cal has a good chance of returning to the rankings Monday.
— The Sun Devils still can win a share of the conference title, but they need a home sweep of Southern California and UCLA, as well as a California loss at Stanford.
— Arizona freshman guard MoMo Jones banked in a game-winning 16-footer at the buzzer for the biggest shot of the Pac-10 season. The Wildcats dropped Stanford 71-69 in a stunner.
— Oregon State nearly blew a big late lead against USC, but hung on for a 49-44 win that kept out of the bottom of the conference.
— It’s almost sad to watch USC fold like it has in the final games of the season. The Trojans are lacking the senior leadership to keep players focused and it’s starting look as if they’re feeling sorry for themselves.
— All you need to know about Oregon’s 70-68 win at UCLA is senior Tajuan Porter scored 29 points for the Ducks. It was his second highest scoring game this season.
— Oregon center Michael Dunigan has a sore hip, which bodes well for the Huskies. Washington travels to Oregon Thursday. Dunigan dominated UW in their first meeting, finishing with 20 points and 14 rebounds. He claimed the Player of the Week award after the Husky game.
— Senior Nikola Dragovic sprained his right ankle during warmups, but played anyway because UCLA was short on players. Maybe his injury was a harbinger for a depleted UCLA team which is staring at its third losing season since 1947-48.
