Pac-12 Basketball Power Rankings: December 12

Our first look at the current state of the conference.

The 2016-17 college basketball season is over four weeks old and we have now enough evidence to publish our first set of Pac-12 power rankings.

We take a look below at how each team currently stands according to House of Sparky's Connor Pelton and Kaelen Jones.

Rank Pelton's Picks Jones' Picks
1. UCLA UCLA
2. USC Oregon
3. Arizona Colorado
4. Oregon USC
5. California Arizona
6. Utah Utah
7. Colorado Stanford
8. Stanford Washington
9. Arizona State Arizona State
10. Washington California
11. Washington State Washington State
12. Oregon State Oregon State

The Skinny:

UCLA is our consensus top pick in the first edition of our power rankings. The Bruins are off to a 10-0 start, including wins over Texas A&M, Kentucky, and Michigan in three of their last four games to secure a spot atop the Pac-12.

After that, things are, predictably, a mess.

Utah and Arizona State are consensus selections at sixth and ninth, while Washington State and Oregon State round out the bottom two spots of the rankings.
