It's Selection Sunday, and here's our overview from today's paper on the chances of the Washington Huskies and eight other Pac-10 teams -- everyone but Oregon State -- awaiting a call today. It includes some comment from Pac-10 commissioner Tom Hansen about what the league is doing or can do to help its teams. Bottom line answer: Not much.
As for those Huskies, the latest NIT-ology projection keeps them as a No. 1 seed in the College Basketball Invitational, likely hosting someone -- this project says Sam Houston State -- Tuesday or Wednesday at Hec Ed.
I think Huskies in the CBI and hosting is probably what we'll hear today. However, I think the bigger question is between CBI and nothing, rather than NIT or CBI.
In any case, the NCAA makes its picks at 3 p.m., so I would expect the NIT and CBI selections (and word on Washington) to be settled between 4 and 5 this afternoon.
Never miss a local story.
I'll pop in here as soon as word comes.
