Zona Zealots Pac-12 Basketball Power Rankings

1. Arizona (3-0) last: 1

Freshmen Brandon Ashley is making his mark early, becoming the team leader in points (13.7) and rebounds (7.7) per game.

2. California (3-0) last: 3

They haven’t played anyone challenging yet, but Allen Crabbe is already averaging 26.7 points per game. Put him on your Pac-12 Player of the Year watch.

3. UCLA (2-1) last: 2

UCLA’s one point victory over UC-Irvine and loss to Georgetown is enough for us to bump them one notch in the wrong direction.

4. Colorado (4-0) last: 4

An upset over #16 Baylor gives the Buffs a #23 ranking in the nation.

5. Oregon Ducks (4-0) last: 6

Oregon’s first true test comes this week against #18 UNLV.

6. Stanford (3-1) last: 5

A loss to Belmont is not a good start for the Cardinal, but they will have a chance to redeem themselves against #13 Missouri this week.

7. USC Trojans (2-1) last: 7

The Trojans got trounced by Illinois and do not look like a great basketball team to start off the season.

8. Oregon State Beavers (3-1) last: 9

We won’t punish Oregon State for a close loss to Alabama, especially when the Pac-12 teams behind them haven’t faired any better.

9. Washington (2-2) last: 8

The Huskies are only 2-2 after losing to Albany and #4 Ohio State. They also required an overtime to beat Seton Hall and are overall off to a very bad start.

10. Arizona State Sun Devils (2-0) last: 11

Two wins over Central Arkansas and Florida A & M, teams with a combined record of 1-4, do not yet tell us much about the Sun Devils.

11. Washington State Cougars (2-2) last:10

Back-to-back losses to Pepperdine and Kansas (a 78-41 disaster) spells trouble for the Cougars.

12. Utah Utes (1-1) last:12

Losing to Sacramento keeps the Utes in the cellar.
