With 3 Weeks Left in Pac-10 race, No. 22 Washington is in Driver's Seat

Posted: Updated:

SEATTLE (AP) - There's three weeks to go in the Pac-10 men's
basketball race and the team in control is No. 22 Washington.

With a 10-3 league record, the Huskies need no help from here on
out to wrap up the school's first regular season conference title
in 24 years.

If Washington wins its final five games, the Huskies will be the
Pac-10 champs. Not bad for a team picked to finish fifth in the
league before the season began.

Washington's final push begins tomorrow night at No. 20 UCLA, a
place the Huskies hold only one win in the last 22 years. Then
comes a road game against USC, followed by a trio of home games to
close the season ... against No. 14 Arizona State, red-hot Arizona
and finally rival Washington State on March 7.

The Huskies head into their final five games with a 19-6 overall
mark. They're out to claim just the third regular season conference
title.
