PAC-10 WEEKEND WRAP: Showdown at Haas

It's a day late and it's going to be short, but here it is anyway.

Here are the standings:


Pacific-10 Conference Standings

(updated 2.21.2010 at 10:22 PM PST)

Conf Overall
W L W L
California Golden Bears 10 5 18 9
Arizona St. Sun Devils 9 5 19 8
USC Trojans 8 6 16 10
Washington Huskies 8 7 18 9
Arizona Wildcats 7 7 13 13
UCLA Bruins 7 7 12 14
Stanford Cardinal 7 8 13 14
Oregon St. Beavers 6 8 12 14
Washington St. Cougars 6 9 16 11
Oregon Ducks 4 10 12 14

Sets up nicely for what figures to be the game of the year in the conference, when Arizona State visits Haas Pavilion on Saturday. (Assuming neither team stubs its toe on Thursday.)

Again, not a tremendous amount of change in the rankings, as things have really settled in with only two weekends to go. Just a reminder that these are power rankings, meaning that I would expect any team ranked above another to beat that team right now on a neutral floor.

1. California

Rank last week: 1
Record last week: 1-1
Overall Record: 18-9

I wonder why it is that the Bears have such a hard time with Oregon State?

2. Washington

Rank last week: 2
Record last week:
1-1
Overall Record:
18-9

WSU beat USC twice. USC beat UW twice. UW murdered WSU once. Repeat after me: "The transitive property does not apply in basketball ..."

3. Arizona State

Rank last week: 3
Record last week: 1-0
Overall Record: 19-8

Half a game out with just four games to play, including one against the team you're trailing? The Sun Devils have the opportunity in front of them.

4. USC

Rank last week: 4
Record last week: 1-1
Overall Record: 16-10

Repeat after me: "The transitive property does not apply in basketball ..."

5. Arizona

Rank last week: 5
Record last week: 0-1
Overall Record: 13-13

Rough stretch for the Wildcats. To think we all thought they might make a run at the conference title.

6. UCLA

Rank last week: 6
Record last week: 1-1
Overall Record: 12-14

Reeves Nelson tries to take out the floor with his forehead, gets stitches, comes back in the game ... and he needed surgery on the eye? The dude's myth grows larger by the day.

7. Oregon State

Rank last week: 7
Record last week: 1-1
Overall Record: 12-14

Repeat after me: "The transitive property does not apply in basketball ..."

8. Stanford

Rank last week: 9
Record last week: 2-0
Record: 13-14

Could Landry Fields really possibly win player of the year on a team at the bottom of the conference? He's making a strong case.

9. Washington State

Rank last week: 8
Record last week: 1-1
Overall Record: 16-11

Nice to see some fire against USC, but c'mon guys: Should it really be so hard to get up for every game?

10. Oregon

Rank last week: 10
Record last week: 0-2
Overall Record: 12-12

A word to Ernie Kent: Don't beg for you job. That's beneath you. I'm not your biggest fan, but I think you deserve better. Keep some dignity.
