Both the Huskies and the Cardinal are relatively comparable teams this year. Both are going to need big time years in the Pac-12 to get the job done to get into the dance, and it doesn’t really seem all that likely that either is going to be able to do so. Stanford had gotten off to a terrible start in conference play, losing at both USC and UCLA in a span of three days before coming home and beating the Washington State Cougars three days ago. Meanwhile, Washington has lived on the road of late, playing four games just since December 13th away from Seattle. The last two were both big time upsets over Wazzu and the Cal Golden Bears, and now, the team gets to come on the road to Maples Pavilion. G CJ Wilcox has been hot all year long, especially here in the Pac-12, where he has put up 18 and 19 points in his last two games. He’s got a great nose for the ball and is a complete player, and he is the reason that the Huskies are going to be able to come on the road and at least challenge in this one. This is a whole heck of a lot of points to be giving a team that has played great ball on the road this year.
Washington vs. Stanford Pick: Washington Huskies +7.5
Washington vs. Stanford Prediction: Washington 65 – Stanford 63
