Huskies eliminated from Pac-10 title race

California knocked off Arizona State 62-46 this afternoon to claim at least a share of the Pac-10 title. It’s the first conference crown for the Golden Bears in 50 years.
Despite the defeat, the Sun Devils are still alive in the league title race. If Cal loses next week at Stanford and ASU sweeps the Los Angeles schools, then the Sun Devils will share the title with the Bears. It would be ASU’s first conference championship in school history.
Cal’s win today eliminated last season’s champion Washington, USC and UCLA.
The Bears also likely sealed at least an at-large NCAA tournament berth.
Cal coach Mike Montgomery may have sealed the Pac-10 Coach of the Year award, especially if ASU stumbles next week.
Bears senior Jerome Randle, however, didn’t lock up the Player of the Year award. He had seven points on 3-for-11 shooting and four assists. Randle will get a some votes because many coaches believe the award should go to the best player on the best team.
Husky senior Quincy Pondexter is a strong candidate because he’s been the most consistent player this season. He won four Player of the Week awards, which is a feat that’s only been accomplished four times in the history of the Pac-10. Every player who’s done it went on to win the POY award.
