Fans invited to Selection Sunday event at UW

Update: As of this morning, ESPN's Joe Lunardi has Washington up to a No. 7 seed, and he has them in the West, opening against No. 10 Villanova in Tucson.

Fans are invited to watch the Selection Sunday television broadcast along with the Huskies, starting at 3 p.m. Sunday at the Don James Center at Husky Stadium.

The Huskies are certain of hearing their name called, as their win over Arizona in the Pac-10 tournament championship brings along an automatic bid. However, they will learn their seeding, opponent and opening-game time and location.

As of Saturday evening, The Bracketology Project matrix was showing Washington as ranging from a No. 8 to a No. 11 seed.

After the win over Arizona, coach Lorenzo Romar was asked to look forward a bit to that next tournament:

"We felt from the beginning of the year if we came out and played Husky basketball and played the way we were capable of, we'd have a chance to be successful in most any game," he said. "So we'll go see. We'll see what happens. It's a good time for us to be playing together and playing right. I know that much. Where we go, what comes of the field of 68, you just wait for the call, prepare yourself and you go."

Here's the invitation from the school:

The Huskies just won the Pac-10 Basketball Tournament! Please join Coach Romar and the team tomorrow, Sunday, March 13 in the Don James Center at Husky Stadium to watch the NCAA Selection Show. The Don James Center is located inside Husky Stadium on the second level of the north side. Parking is free on Sundays in the E-1 parking lot.

This is a FREE event for all Husky fans. Coffee, lemonade, and light snacks will be provided. Doors open at 2:30 p.m. and the show starts at 3:00 p.m.

No RSVP necessary, bring your friends, show up and support your Dawgs!

Romar also was asked what other Pac-10 teams he thinks are deserving of a call today:

"Based on being able to play those teams, I'd say they're all capable," he said. "Theway SC defends, and with their front line and the quickness of their guards, you just don't face that alot. I think if they get invited to this tournament, they definitely could advance.UCLA's starting five is very, very, very talented. They've got a big front line. They've gotsome scorers in there. They come out ready to play, and they obviously could make some noise.Arizona, I think they could play with anyone. They defend. Derrick Williams is so hardto deal with. They can shoot it, so they have a chance. I hope we get four in, because it will befun to watch this conference."
