California -1½ vs. Washington: These two Pac-10 teams are clearly on the bubble for a tournament bid and need wins in the league tourney. This one appeared to be a toss-up until Washington’s big man, Jon Brockman, came up hobbling with an ankle injury. His loss can’t be overstated as Brockman leads the conference in rebounding and double-doubles. The Huskies will make too many mistakes and turnovers without him, opening the door for a hard-fought win for the Golden Bears. Take California laying up to -2.
