UW rewarded in bracket projections after tournament win

We have one more day to listen and read Joe Lunardi’s gospel. Until the selection committee releases the 2011 NCAA tournament pairings this afternoon, the ESPN bracket guru is the most trusted and knowledgeable source on the subject.
He rewarded Washington, which won the Pac-10 Tournament title and claimed an automatic berth.
Saturday he projected the Huskies were a No. 10 seed, but this morning Lunardi says UW is a No. 7 seed and will face 10th-seeded Villanova in Tucson, Ariz.
This is an ideal scenario for Washington. It’s a somewhat easy trip to a place where they’re familiar. Just as important, it’s a long travel day for Villanova. If UW were to advance, it could meet No. 2 San Diego State in the second round and No. 3 Texas in the Sweet 16 in Anaheim, Calif.
Again ideal scenario.
Lunardi also projects Arizona as a No. 5 seed, UCLA is a No. 8 and USC is a No. 12, which has to appear in the play-in game Tuesday.
Andy Glockner at SI.com, who also does a pretty good job of analyzing the bracket, projects UW as a No. 7 seed in the Southeast region. In this scenario, the Huskies would play No. 10 Butler in Tampa.
Jerry Palm at CBSsports.com also believes the Huskies will be a No. 7 seed, but he has them in the Southwest region facing No. 10 Tennessee in Chicago.
The Bracket Matrix, which computes 87 tournament projections, has UW as a No. 9 seed.
