Projected seed: 6

Washington State has assembled a robust resume anchored by key victories, especially those over a powerhouse opponent like Arizona and a quality win against UCLA, demonstrating they can topple the upper echelon of their conference. Furthermore, their defensive prowess, which is evident in their ability to consistently stifle teams within a competitive Pac-12, adds to their credibility. Discrepancies such as the loss to a lesser-ranked California cannot be overlooked but can be balanced against their overall solid performance in conference play. The upcoming game is an opportunity to further solidify their standing, and a strong finish in the Pac-12 could bolster their argument for a higher seeding. Handling business efficiently in these late season games against middle-tier conference opponents while showing that elite win potential will be key come Selection Sunday.
