Lunardi: UW is No. 11 seed in East region

Just six days remaining before Selection Sunday. It’s going to be an intense week of bubble-watching and NCAA tournament speculation. We’ll keep you updated with the latest projections.
Let’s begin with ESPN’s bracket guru Joe Lunardi who tends to have a good read on these things. He projects Washington will capture the No. 11 seed in the East region and will face No. 6 Vanderbilt in Nashville, Tenn. If that unfolds, it’s a tough draw for the Huskies because that’s essentially a home game for Vandy.
Lunardi believes California will get a more favorable draw. He has the Golden Bears seeded 10th and facing No. 7 Creighton in Columbus, OH.
After Arizona’s regular-season finale loss to Arizona State, the Wildcats fell out of Lunardi’s bracket. They’re listed as the seventh best team outside the 68-team field. Oregon is listed as the third best team outside the bracket.
