At least that's the scoop from Joey L at ESPN.
In the current bracket, we are a 10 seed matched up against Tennessee on Duke's side of the Bracket. Meanwhile, the Defeateds are among the first four out. So sad.
Obviously, we're light years away from March, but it's neat to see that our non-conference slate as well as our past success has left us squarely on the map.
In the meantime, if we wish to see our third straight dance, the next games are beyond critical:
LSU is going to be tough, but this is a very winnable game. And for us, we need another non-conference W BIG TIME--and to have it come against an undefeated team from the SEC on their home court would be REALLY huge.
Then, the Defeateds game is going to be season breaker-maker game if there is such a thing in January. Both Washington schools figure to be fighting it out for the 4-6 spots in the conference. As a result, we simply MUST protect home court. And from what I've seen, the Defeateds offer the type of length and athleticism that could offer some big problems for us.
So, give us your thoughts about those upcoming games.
Are they must-wins as I think that they are? Do you think we will win one, both, or none? What will it take for us to pull off a sweep?
Share your thoughts with us and have a very happy and safe Holiday Season.
