Bracket guru Jerry Palm includes UW in NCAA tourney projections

The Huskies have a fan in CBSsports.com bracket guru Jerry Palm, who includes Washington in his latest NCAA tournament projections.

If the Selection Committee were picking teams today, here’s where the Pac-12 teams would be headed according to Palm: Arizona (2-West), Utah (3-Midwest), Stanford (8-West) and Washington (10-South).

Here’s a look at where the Pac-12 teams stand in the NCAA tournament projections from ESPN’s Joe Lunardi: Arizona (2-West), Utah (3-South) and Stanford (8-Midwest).

Interesting to note, Palm and Lunardi project Arizona and Utah would play first-round games in Portland.

Also, Lunardi has Washington among his first four teams not making the tournament.

Washington is 48th in the RPI rating. Here’s where how the other Pac-12 teams stack up: Arizona (5), Utah (10), Stanford (31), Oregon State (72), UCLA (76), Oregon (78), Colorado (93), Arizona State (117), Washington State (124), California (134) and USC (145).

Not much change in the national rankings as it pertains to the Pac-12 teams. Arizona is sixth in both polls while Utah is 10th in the USA Today/coaches ranking and 11th in the Associated Press poll.
