Don't look now, but we are just one month away from the start of the Pac-12 Tournament in Las Vegas.
So, how does the conference look at the moment? House of Sparky's Connor Pelton and Kaelen Jones' break it all down below.
|Rank||Pelton's Picks||Jones' Picks|
|6.||Oregon State||Oregon State|
|10.||Arizona State||Arizona State|
|12.||Washington State||Washington State|
Oregon seems to be the clear-cut No. 1 team at this point. The Ducks have won nine of their last 10 and have an eight-point road win against Arizona on their résumé.
Arizona State finally broke free from their spot at No. 11 thanks to a road win against Washington State. The Sun Devils do appear to be playing better, and — thanks to some impressive nonconference wins — still have a good shot at an NIT berth.
The Wildcats’ margin is beginning to get a little bit thinner, as Oregon turned in a couple of solid performances and USC extended its impressive run in Pac-12 play.
Elsewhere, the interior of the conference remains a crapshoot, as Washington and California appear to be the most capable of challenging for a spot in the upper tier as of now.
