Pac-12 Tournament Outlook

At this point, California is the only Pac-12 team who should feel even remotely confident about their NCAA hopes.  The Bears are tied atop the league at 12-3 and are just outside of the RPI Top 30.  They have virtually no depth, but Cal does have a terrific trio of backcourt players in Allen Crabbe, Jorge Gutierrez, and Justin Cobbs, who combine to average 42.4 points, 13.8 rebounds, and 11.4 assists with Crabbe and Cobbs both shooting better than 40 percent from beyond the arc.

Washington is tied for the lead with Cal after winning eight of their last nine contests.  The Huskies definitely aren’t short on talent, but they struggled in the non-conference and have a few lopsided losses.  They don’t have many interior players, but instead Washington relies on a slew of talented guards and wings like Tony Wroten, Terrence Ross, and C.J. Wilcox.  Lorenzo Romar’s teams always seem to peak late in the season, which could bode well for the Huskies’ chances in the tournament.  As it stands, they are firmly on the bubble.

Plenty of other teams are in need of deep tournament runs to increase their slim at-large hopes, most notably Arizona and Oregon.  Three of Arizona’s five conference losses have come by a total of five points, but they need to rack up more wins to bolster a mediocre tournament profile.  The Ducks suffered two of their losses before Minnesota transfer and leading scorer Devoe Joseph became eligible, but they have no Top 50 wins, which makes a deep run here a must.

For all the ridicule that the Pac-12 has endured this season for its poor non-conference performance and lack of quality wins, that should actually make for a more exciting tournament since virtually every team will come into Anaheim feeling like their only chance to go dancing is to win it.
