Game One: USC (7) vs. Oregon State (10)
Winner: Oregon State, Scott Rueck’s team seems to be peaking at the end of the year, while the Women of Troy can’t say the same thing.
Game Two: Utah (6) vs. Arizona (11)
Winner: Utah, the Wildcats have the offense to outscore the Utes, but they won’t get the necessary stops to advance to Friday.
Game Three: Washington State (8) vs. Arizona State (9)
Winner: Arizona State, even though WSU got the better of the Sun Devils in their two meetings this season, I have a gut feeling ASU will pull the upset.
Game Four: Washington (5) vs. Oregon (12)
Winner: Washington, the Huskies just aren’t going to fall in the first round, especially in Seattle.
Game Five: California (2) vs. Oregon State (10)
Winner: California, don’t be shocked if Oregon State gives the Bears a game again, two weeks after falling by two at the hands of the nation’s No. 5 team.
Game Six: UCLA (3) vs. Utah (6)
Winner: UCLA, the Utes will likely be a little more competitive than they were in their last meeting with UCLA.
Game Seven: Stanford (1) vs. Arizona State (9)
Winner: Stanford, the Sun Devils road almost certainly ends with the Cardinal.
Game Eight: Colorado (4) vs. Washington (5)
Winner: Colorado, Jazmine Davis, Talia Walton and Kristi Kingma will keep it interesting right down to the wire, but Colorado earns the right to take another swing at Stanford.
Game Nine: California (2) vs. UCLA (3)
Winner: California, Cal just seems to be a bad matchup for UCLA, and I don’t see that changing in Seattle.
Game Ten: Stanford (1) vs. Colorado (4)
Winner: Colorado, the Buffs will come in with confidence, and will finally put in a full 40 minutes of quality basketball in against the Cardinal.
Game Eleven: California (2) vs. Colorado (4)
Winner: California, in another close game between these two opponents, Cal grabs the win with a late layup from Brittany Boyd.
