Keep in mind going into the season the experts predicted this would be a game between the first place team and a third place team, a third place team that would likely need a win to make the NCAA tournament. The experts had it right but had the teams reversed. Heavy preseason favorite Washington is slumping in the Pac-10, having lost three of their last six Pac-10 games. UCLA has won eight of its last nine, including last Saturday's magical win against then 10th-ranked Arizona. Meanwhile, Washington is calling this game "playoff time", in that if they lose they are out of the tourney.

UCLA has not won at Hec Ed since 2004. Will they break the streak this year? The UCLA preview is here. You can follow the game online here.
