Washington snubbed again by national media

Heading into third round of the NCAA tournament, few talking heads at ESPN or college basketball writers are giving much thought about the Washington Huskies.
Most of the attention is being given to the three Cinderella darlings, No. 9 Northern Iowa, which knocked off No. 1 overall seed Kansas; No. 12 Cornell out of the Ivy League and No. 10 Saint Mary’s, which features a flamboyant rising star in center Omar Samhan.
There’s also a lot of discussion about the three No. 1 seeds (Kentucky, Syracuse and Duke) and championship contenders such as No. 2 Ohio State, No. 2 West Virginia, No. 2 Kansas State and No. 3 Baylor.
Michigan State, which has injury problems, is in the news for all the wrong reasons and Purdue has garnered coverage because it has also overcome injuries.
Meanwhile the other teams, including Washington, Tennessee, Butler and Xavier are flying below the radar.
Despite its No. 11 seed, UW doesn’t fit into the spoiler group. To steal a line from a poster, the Huskies are more like Sleeping Beauty than Cinderella. If not for the midseason slip, they would probably we a No. 3 or 4 seed.
Ray Ratto a columnist at CBSsports.com says the Huskies are the the only “underdog” team with a chance of pulling off an upset in the third round.
