March Madness 2011 Bubble Watch: PAC Ten Monday Update

Whatever happened to basketball on the West Coast? With March Madness 2011 approaching faster than you think their isn't even one lock yet to play in the tournament.

PAC 10 Bubble Watch

Arizona (10-2, 21-4)- Arizona is barely on the bubble and will likely graduate to a lock very soon, they had a 67 to 52 victory over in state rival Arizona State that almost seals the deal. It is hard to believe that we can even be talking about them on the bubble with that record but they haven't really beaten anyone. They have a one game lead on the conference at present and we have no doubt they will win the conference.

UCLA (9-3, 17-7) - Unlike Arizona UCLA actually has some decent victories that allow them to get into the dance without winning the PAC 10. The Bruins beat BYU and St. Johns and that helps a lot. UCLA beat Oregon State at home 69 to 61, a win is a win but this one falls only into the needed to win because a loss would have been embarrassing. UCLA is going to get every opportunity they need to finish the season out strong and impress with games against Arizona, Washington and Washington State to finish out the season.

Washington (8-4, 16-7) - Washington can flat out score with the second highest scoring average in the country but they had a rough stretch in conference play and they need to finish hot. They beat Stanford 87-76 at home on Saturday. There next game is against Arizona State on the road, so they better win that one against the lowly Sun Devils. Our guess is that the Huskies will take some more stumbles again and will not be dancing in March Madness 2011, but that is just our fearless prediction.
