Wilner says UW may be Pac-10’s best in 09-10

Jon Wilner of the San Jose Mercury News writes today that everything he is hearing is that UCLA’s Jrue Holiday will soon hire an agent, which would make it a done deal that he stays in the NBA Draft.
That development could, he writes, make the battle for the top of the Pac-10 next season a two-team affair consisting of UW and Cal.
And he further says that while the Bears will likely be the top-ranked team heading into the season, he’d probably side with the Huskies as the eventual winner, writing that UW’s core group “has more talent, more potential” than Cal’s.
It didn’t necessarily look like it last season when the Bears beat the Huskies in both regular season meetings, the only team to sweep UW. Cal outscored UW by 24 in the last 17:21 of the game in Berkeley in February, as dominant as any Pac-10 team was for an extended stretch against the Huskies this season.
But then the Bears were also swept by Oregon State.
As for Holiday — the younger brother of UW’s Justin Holiday — he continues to be cited as a probable first-round pick. DraftExpress.com has him slotted at No. 20 in a mock draft updated Saturday (and one that doesn’t include Jon Brockman anywhere).
