Pac 12 2013-2014 NCAA BB Power Rankings

1. Arizona (+175)

Aaron Gordon was the huge pickup in the offseason for the Wildcats. Gordon is going to be on a lot of highlight reels this year. It isn’t just Gordon though, the Wildcats are deeper than anyone in the conference.

Nick Johnson is a very good all-around player, and T.J. McConnell should be a great fit at point guard. Arizona should pull away from the rest of the Pac-12 this year.

2. Oregon (+500)

I like what Dana Altman is doing in Eugene. Mike Moser transferred in from UNLV, and if he fulfills his potential this team could be extremely good. Dominic Artis gives the team a play maker at the point guard spot. Damyean Dotson flies under the radar, but he’s an important piece as well. The Ducks should be very good.

3. Colorado (+300)

If Andre Roberson hadn’t left early, the Buffs would have been my second ranked team in the conference. Losing their interior presence and shot blocker will hurt this team. The Buffaloes have a great leader in point guard Spencer Dinwiddie. Tad Boyle has established himself as a high quality coach.

4. UCLA (+350)

Steve Alford is the new head man in Westwood. The Bruins had an up and down season last year. Muhammad is gone, but the Bruins still have a trio of super sophomores. This team is tough to get a good read on going into the year. Expect another up and down season for UCLA.

5. California (+800)

Allen Crabbe is gone, but the rest of the team is back. Jabari Bird is a five-star recruit who could come in and be the team leader right away. The Golden Bears are ranked higher here than they are by most experts. I think Cal could sneak up on some people.

6. Stanford (+800)

Stanford was a major disappointment last year. After winning the NIT in 2012, they were a popular pick to win the Pac-12. Instead, they finished a game worse than the year before. The Cardinal should have a better season this year. There’s too much talent here for them to finish much worse than this.

7. Arizona State (+1500)

Jahii Carson is probably the best player in the Pac-12. He doesn’t have enough help to make this team great, but the Sun Devils will be a lot of fun to watch this year. Herb Sendek’s team could easily get into the NCAA Tournament.

8. Washington (+1200)

The Huskies relied too heavily on C.J. Wilcox last year, and I worry they’ll do the same this year. This isn’t the same fast-paced team they were a couple years ago.

9. Oregon State (+2000)

Oregon State has some major question marks. Eric Moreland is one of their best players, but he is suspended to start the season. The Beavers has been improving though, so they’ll stay out of the cellar.

10. Utah (+2500)

The Utes aren’t nearly as talented as many of the other teams in this conference, but they play hard all the way to the final buzzer.

11. Southern Cal (+5000)

Andy Enfield should give this team some more energy, but he’s going to need more talent than he has right now to compete in this good of a conference.

12. Washington State (+5000)

Washington State is slowly turning into a bottom-feeder in the Pac-12.

Free Pick to Win Pac 12 Conference:

Arizona – The Wildcats are much better than anyone else in this league. Look for them to coast to a Pac-12 title.
