ESPN’s Dan Gottlieb lists Washington among the school’s that shouldn’t be underrated when the 2008-09 men’s basketball season rolls around.

Gottlieb thinks the Huskies’ down cycle in hoops may be about to ends, and that UW could reach as high as No. 2 in the Pac-10 next season.

Here’s his take on the Dawgs:

&bull Washington has gone through a down cycle after a 1-seed a couple of years ago. The Huskies didn’t even make the NCAA tournament last season. But with the Pac-10 set to be down and the Huskies bringing back eight of their top 10 (barring a transfer), Jon Brockman should put up huge numbers in the Dawg Pound. Quincy Pondexter was disappointing as a sophomore, but he has a ton of skill. Keep an eye on incoming scoring combo Isaiah Thomas. Look for UW to compete with Arizona for the No. 2 spot (behind UCLA) in the Pac-10.

And here’s his full report.
