Ranking the Pac

Two weeks into conference play, no real change at the top.
1, UCLA — Has won three straight road games to start conference play by an average of 72-60.
2, Cal — Will be interesting to see the reaction Mike Montgomery gets on his return to Stanford Saturday.
3, Arizona State — So much for Herb Sendek’s deliberate offense. ASU is averaging 76.5 points in Pac-10 play, second behind U.
4, Washington — Next few spots are pretty indistinguishable and subject to rapid change. But we’ll go with Huskies here for now. Sweep of Oregon schools would solidify upper-half status.
5, Arizona — Who knows which Arizona team is going to show up game-to-game? Fittingly, Arizona is averaging 61.5 points in Pac-10 play, allowing 61.0 en route to 2-2 record.
6, USC — But Trojans are starting to make you wonder. Fresh phenom DeMar DeRozan is 0-14 on three-pointers this season.
7, Washington State — Cougars showed some life in beating the Cardinal. Sweep in Oregon would revive post-season hopes.
8, Stanford — So how will Stanford recover from two one-point, last-second losses on the road? Stanford scoring 68 points per game in Pac-10 play, 76 for the season.
9, Oregon State — Beavers surely thinking they can get one this weekend with UW and WSU coming to town. Not helping themselves with 63.6 percent free throw shooting, worse even than UW.
10, Oregon — Only winless team in conference play, Ducks look like a squad ready to implode, which should have UW and WSU wary this weekend.
