March 5 USC
*Maui Invitational (championship on Nov. 24)
How good can the Huskies be? They'll find out against Arizona, the Pac-10's projected runner-up this year, and Derrick Williams, the Wildcats' star power forward, who will challenge Matthew Bryan-Amaning inside. If Washington can roll in their meetings with the Wildcats, the conference should be the Huskies' to win.
