Husky Men's Basketball

The latest news and analysis on Husky men's hoops.

Ranking the Pac

While the middle may be more of a muddle than ever, the top and bottom continue to gain some clarity (unfortunately for the home team).
So here they are:
1, UCLA — Everyone keeps saying the Pac-10 champ will have three or four losses this year, but I don’t really see UCLA losing more than once the rest of the way, assuming everyone stays healthy.
2, Stanford — Looking more and more like the only true competitor for UCLA. Unfortunately for Cardinal, it has already lost to the Bruins at home so overtaking them seems pretty unlikely.
3, Arizona — Arizona’s top guns not enough to slay UCLA’s tower of power. But now have three in a row at home giving Wildcats a chance to stay close.
4, USC — Erratic nature to be expected given its youth. Would be no surprise if Trojans put together a 6-3 or better second half to gain a lot of momentum going into tournament.
5, Cal — Bears got off the mat with a sweep of the Washington schools, first team to do that since Arizona in Jan. 2006. Oddity is that they did it without DeVon Hardin raising question of whether the Bears are somehow better off without him?
6, Washington State — Lack of depth beginning to be a real issue. Cougars also could really use another scoring threat.
7, Oregon — Ducks need at least a split of Bay Area trip this weekend as they begin a stretch of five of seven on the road.
8, Arizona State — NIT probably best ASU can hope for now.
9, Washington — Worst aspect of this weekend for UW might have been seeing that the home court mystique is gone.
10, Oregon State — Best chance for a win could come Feb. 16 when UW rolls into town.
