Day two

Some of the games didn’t necessarily go to plan, but the end result of the first day of the tournament for the Pac-10 did — two wins as higher seeds, one loss as a lower seed.
Day two should be a little more interesting, especially the Arizona-Purdue and USC-Arkansas games.
As long as it shoots anything like it did at the Pac-10 Tournament, Oregon should win.
I also think USC will get past Arkansas. The Razorbacks had a nice ending to the season to get into the tournament, and have a higher RPI — 35 to USC’s 40. But the Trojans should be motivated to play better defense than they did against Oregon, and if Nick Young gets rolling at all, Troy should move on.
As for Arizona, who has a clue what the Wildcats are going to do from one game to the next? I doubt Lute Olson does. Arizona is truly one of those teams in the tournament that could lose in the first round or go to the Final Four.
Watching the way Arizona lost to Oregon makes one think an early exit is in store. But then, maybe all those guys will remember that NBA scouts are watching and decide to bring it.
I’m still in Sacramento, so I’ll try to pass on any nuggets I get here, as well as just some general observations. Feel free to pass along any of your observations, as well.
