CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Washington's reward for winning another
Pac-10 tournament: a nearly 3,000-mile trip for its NCAA tournament
opener, and a possible matchup with North Carolina in the Tar
Heels' home state.

If the No. 7 seed Huskies (23-10) had been steadier during the
season, maybe they'd be playing closer to home.

Washington faces 10th-seeded Georgia on Friday in the teams'
East Regional opener. To get here, the Huskies traveled 2,802 miles
- the longest trip for any tournament team this year.

Coach Lorenzo Romar said Thursday that "if we had done a little
better job during our season, we wouldn't have had to go so far."

Georgia has been through a lot, too. The Bulldogs (21-11) spent
a few days on the bubble after an early loss in the SEC tournament.
