It should come as no surprise, but No. 6 Washington is considered a dark horse to win the Pac-12 Tournament, according to oddsmakers.

Bet.com predicts Arizona will win the conference tourney and capture a No. 4 seed to the NCAAs.

Teamrankings.com gives a breakdown of the odds of each team to win the Pac-12 tourney. Washington has a 3.1 percent chance of winning, according to the website. Arizona is at the top of the list at 33.2.

The BetOnline Sportsbook has also established the Wildcats as the favorites.

AROUND THE PAC-12:

— Here’s our story on C.J. Wilcox who is battling a cold and dealing with a foot injury. There’s also an item on Colorado winning the Pac-12 tourney last season as the No. 6 seed.

— California junior Allen Crabbe won the Pac-12 Player of the Year award. He’s the third Cal player to win the award in the past four years joining Jorge Gutierrez (2012) and Jerome Randle (2010). Here’s video of an interview with Crabbe.

— Colorado’s Andre Roberson talks about winning the Defensive Player of the Year award.

Arizona had a couple of winners (Solomon Hill and Mark Lyons), a few losers (its three highly acclaimed freshmen post players) and a notably snub (Nick Johnson) in the Pac-12 postseason awards race.

— Oregon State is one of the many teams playing on the first day of the Pac-12 tourney that feels it can win the title.

— Utah freshman Jordan Loveridge got snubbed by Pac-12 coaches.
