GU and WSU projected as decent seeds in NCAA field


Bracketology 101, which bills itself as the most-accurate of the NCAA seeding sites (how accurate can it be, when there is still more than half the year to go yet?), has its most recent field of 65 posted.

Of note is Gonzaga is now listed as a five seed, Washington State is an eight, UW a three, UCLA a one, Arizona a two, Oregon a four and GU's opponent Saturday, Nevada, a seven.

The Pac-10 teams will never end up that high, as they will beat up each other throughout the course of the conference season. Plus, with the West Coast bias (and there is one), every loss they suffer to each other will count almost double.
