Regardless of what Lute Olson thinks, I love the Pac-10 Tournament. Conference tournaments are very fun to watch. Who wouldn't want to see Dick Bennett's Washington State Cougars beat Stanford one more time?
In the end, I see Washington and Arizona hooking up next Saturday. And that's the way it should be. We've already seen two very good games between these two teams. A third one sounds very enticing as well.
March Madness. It's a sickness. But I don't want to be cured.
