Pivotal Game as Sun Devils visit Huskies in Pac-10 Showdown

New, 1 comment

Ah, mediocrity. The word is used as a descriptor for a lot of things in life - the Diamondbacks, Olive Garden, Family Guy, Bud Light. Never has the word been so apt as right now in 2010 when describing the Pac-10 basketball slate. Despite losing two NBA draft picks in 2009, the Sun Devils are sitting atop the conference with a dazzling 6-4 record.

At 16-7 overall, ASU needs to win six more games to have a good shot at making the NCAA Tournament with an at-large bid. There are 8 regular season games remaining on the slate, and then ASU will be playing at least once in the Pac-10 Tournament. What this information really implies is the following: the Devils cannot have a letdown game tonight, or lose next weekend to either of the Oregon schools. The next three games are essential.

Washington has looked good lately after an abysmal start to Pac-10 play. The Huskies decimated the Cougars, then beat a now-tough Arizona Wildcats team. Sitting at 15-7, UW must win a lot of games in order to be dancing in March.

In reality, our conference may only get 2 or 3 bids. But if UW, ASU, Cal and Arizona can all win the majority of their remaining games, we may have a shot at 4. UCLA is out unless they win the Pac-10 Tournament.

Man, lets look at the stats, shall we?
