It doesn't get any bigger than tonight when conference leading Washington faces Arizona State at Hec Ed. With a victory tonight the Huskies will be able to put a full game and a half between themselves and the Sun Devils.
Washington hasn't won the league outright since 1953 and this team headed into the last two weekends of play has the best chance of any Washington team in recent memory to do exactly that.
I wouldn't say this is the best team Washington has ever fielded even if they do win the conference and go deep into the NCAA tournament. However they will be remembered always as the team that actually achieved the goal of winning a conference championship.
I like Washington's chances against anyone on their home court and as we saw in Tempe earlier this year the Huskies match up very well with the Sun Devils when they are running on all cylinders.
Frankly the Arizona game coming up on Saturday concerns me quite a bit more with their big three. Washington had no real answer for what the Wildcats were doing when they played last time in Tuscon.
That all being said the home court advantage in the Pac 10 is a huge equalizer and I expect the Huskies to sweep the series this weekend.
