ESPN’s NCAA tournament bracket guru Joe Lunardi predicts half of the Pac-12 will make the Big Dance. However, Washington is left out of his projections.
According to Lunardi, Arizona will capture the No. 3 seed, Colorado seven, California nine, Oregon 10 and UCLA and Stanford are 12.
That’s a heckuva improvement for a conference that sent just two teams to the tourney last season.
The notable omission is Arizona State (8-1) and perhaps Oregon State (5-2).
At this time, Lunardi doesn’t consider the Huskies (4-4) a bubble team.
