Lets go WSU!
UCLA is Pac-10's top seed if ... By Brian Dohn on March 6, 2009 2:15 PM | Permalink | Comments (6) | ShareThis I talked to the Pacific-10 office today, and was told if UCLA beats Oregon and Washington State defeats Washington on Saturday, the Bruins would grab the top seed in next week's Pacific-10 Tournament. The first way it would happen is if UCLA wins, Washington loses and California beats Arizona State. That would give the Bruins the edge because of head-to-head competition against Cal, the third-place team. The other way it happens is if UCLA wins, Washington loses and Arizona State beats California The first tie-breaker is head-to-head, and the teams split. The second tie-breaker is how each team did against the highest team in the standings, and so on down to team No. 10. The teams would remain tied regardless of how the standings would play out. The third tie-breaker is overall record, and a UCLA win would make the Bruins 24-7. If Washington then loses to Washington State, the Huskies would be 24-8.
Sorry if our 2 best players were injured. How much I would of liked to beat the Huskies, I would have to say (I can't believe I'm going to say this) but its good to have a Pac-10 title in Washington. Its been a long time for the state. So Congrats Huskies. But we need to focus on winning the tourney, because we gonna need to win it if we have any chance at the tournament.

Romar had a great year but I would have given the nod to Oregon St's coach for coach of the year given the talent he was left. Also whats up with a ten man all league first team, the honor losses meaning the more people they allow to be on it.

LMAO It seems like they got the idea that if you let Arizona in they you can shit on the rest of the conference, Pretty week seedings for all of the PAC 10 teams hopefully a team can get hot and make some noise.
Dash: I fell asleep in the 3rd quarter of both games. Bucks/Hawks was hype though.

Dash: Bucks are not a good team and are only in because Nets/Hawks got injured. They look several steps behind Phoenix.

sativa417: I'm not a Chris Paul fan, since I hate his flopping and Grizz played his Clipps in some good playoff series, so he's like the enemy to me, but still a great player, so down for him finally getting a ring. Crazy Suns are where they are now. When James Jones

sativa417: took over as GM, people were crapping on some of his moves, but he's put together a hell of a team

kfilament: its interesting how everyone wanted to put an asterisk next to last years champions, but honestly this year seems fluky as hell with injuries, etc., but yeah, hate CP3 as a grizz fan by not mad to see him win one.

kfilament: Pumped the Bucks gonna do it.
