Huskies NIT-bound?

Posted by Bob Condotta at 1:21 PM

That's what columnist Jeff Goodman writes here, anyway.

Goodman doesn't say much about UW we don't already know, but he does give an interesting list of other teams that could miss the NCAA Tournament --- including those other Huskies from UConn, as well as Louisville. Interestingly, those are the last two teams to beat UW in the NCAA Tournament, each in the round of 16.

And it could make for a lot of entertaining NIT games if that's where this all ends up.

It's worth pointing out again, however, that UW will have five of nine conference games at home in the second half with the four road games including visits to lowly Arizona State and Oregon State. A 6-3 Pac-10 record the rest of the way isn't out of the realm of possibility, which would then put an awful lot of importance on that Pitt game Feb. 17.
