Conference breakdown

Here’s a breakdown of NCAA Tournemant play for those conferences that had more than two teams invited (the best way to adequately compare the Pac-10):
SEC (five teams in) 7-2 — Vanderbilt, Florida and Tennessee all 2-0, Kentucky 1-1, Arkansas 0-1.
Pac-10 (six teams in) 7-3 — USC, UCLA and Oregon all 2-0, WSU 1-1, Arizona and Stanford 0-1.
ACC (seven teams in) 6-6 — North Carolina 2-0, Maryland, Virginia, Boston College and Va. Tech all 1-1 and and Duke and Ga. Tech 0-1.
Big 12 (four teams in) 5-2 — Kansas and Texas A&M 2-0, Texas 1-1, Texas Tech 0-1
Big East (six teams in) 5-4 — Georgetown and Pitt each 2-0, Louisville 1-1, Notre Dame, Marquette and Villanova all 0-1.
Big Ten (six teams in) 6-5 — Ohio State 2-0, Wisconsin, Indiana, Purdue and Michigan State all 1-1 and Illinois 0-1.
So that leaves three teams each from the Pac-10 and SEC, two from the Big East and Big 12, and one each from the Big Ten and ACC. There are also one each from Conference USA (Memphis), Mountain West (UNLV), Horizon (Butler) and Missouri Valley (Southern Illinois).
By any measure, obviously, the Pac-10 is doing well, and our columnist, Jerry Brewer, makes that case here, as well.
