With Arizona's 69-53 loss to Washington State on Thursday, you have to start to get very concerned with the Wildcats' chances of making a 25th consecutive NCAA tournament appearance.
Arizona's team – with the exception of Nic Wise in the first half and Jordan Hill in the second – was almost completely lifeless throughout the team, especially in the second half.
Chase Budinger has now had two bad games in a row, Kyle Fogg had one of his worst games of the season following perhaps his best, Jamelle Horne continues to do absolutely nothing for Arizona and Fendi Onobun was brutal.
What's worse is that UA desperately needs a win at the least likely place to get one: at Washington on Saturday, a game in which the Huskies can clinch a Pac-10 title with a win.
What it comes down to is that – assuming UA loses to Washington - Arizona must sweep California and Stanford at home next week and then the team might even need a win in the first round of the Pac-10 tournament.
Even more bad news is that if the tournament was played today, that first round Pac-10 tournament game would be against UCLA.
It's getting desperate for the Wildcats if they're going to continue their drive for 25.
Is Arizona's bubble bursting?
