Compared to this point last season, only Arizona (85.2 ppg.) averaged better than 80.0 points through the first three weeks of the season in the Pac-12.

Thanks in large part to the new defensive rules that outlaw hand-checking, scoring is up this season.

Led by UCLA (90.9 ppg.) six Pac-12 teams are averaging more than 80.0 points this season. The others include: Utah (90.7), Oregon (88.0), Oregon State (84.8), Washington (84.1) and Stanford (81.8).

Arizona State guard Jahii Carson scored 40 points in a game, which is the most this season.

A year ago, former California guard Allen Crabbe was the only player in the Pac-12 averaging 20 or more points at this point of the season.

This season, seven Pac-12 players are averaging 20 or better. Here’s the list:

Team ………………. Name …………………. Scoring avg. …… Games played ….. Season high

Oregon State ……… Roberto Nelson ……. 25.4 ……………….. 5 …………………. 36
