The Washington Huskies say they hope to cut down nets on consecutive Saturdays.
After winning the Pacific-10 Conference regular season championship with a 67-60 win over Washington State on Saturday, the Huskies said they are now serious about winning the Pac-10 tournament, which runs Wednesday through Saturday at Staples Center in Los Angeles.
The tournament opens at 6 p.m. Wednesday with No. 8 Oregon State meeting No. 9 Stanford. That game will be followed at 8:30 p.m. by No. 7 Washington State against No. 10 Oregon.
On Thursday, No. 4 Arizona State meets No. 5 Arizona at noon; No. 1 Washington meets the Oregon State-Stanford winner at 2:30 p.m.; No. 3 California meets No. 6 USC at 6 p.m., and No. 2 UCLA meets the WSU-Oregon winner at 8:30.
The semifinals are at 6 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. Friday. (If the Huskies advance, they would meet the Arizona State-Arizona winner in the early game.)
The championship game is at 3 p.m. Saturday.
Washington hopes to be there.
"We're going to enjoy (the regular season title) and then get right back down to business and try to attack the Pac-10 tournament one game at a time," coach Lorenzo Romar said. "Whoever we're going to be playing – the eighth or the ninth seed — we've got to bring it. We're not content with what just happened. We're excited, we're elated; but we're not content."
All tournament games will be broadcast on FSN, except the championship, which is on CBS.
