Zona Zealots Pac-12 Basketball Power Rankings

1. Arizona (6-0) last: 1

After destroying Texas Tech on the road, Arizona had a close call at home against a pesky Southern Miss defense. They got it done, however, and have their first true test against Clemson this Saturday.

2. Colorado (6-1) last: 3

A loss to Wyoming doesn’t sound great, but Wyoming is 9-0 and a top 50 RPI team, so we will cut the Buffs some slack.

3. California (6-1) last: 2

A loss to a respectable Wisconsin team on the road is not too bad, but a losing by more than 20 points is not desirable. Cal will have a chance to redeem themselves this week when they take on #21 UNLV.

4. Oregon Ducks (7-1) last: 4

Wins over University of Texas San Antonio and Arkansas-Pine Bluff keep the Ducks put.

5. Oregon State Beavers (4-2) last: 6

A 6 point loss to #10 Kansas is not bad. Unfortunately for the Beavers, however, the rest of their non-conference schedule does not look impressive, and another loss could send them in the wrong direction quickly.

6. UCLA (5-3) last: 5

UCLA had a chance to get a quality win over #23 San Diego State, but couldn’t get it done. With the departure of Lamb and Smith, UCLA’s depth could become a big concern in the long run.

7. Stanford (6-3) last: 7

Wins over Seattle and Denver aren’t impressive enough to get the Cardinal out of the bottom half of the Pac-12

8. Arizona State Sun Devils (6-1) last: 9

Yes, ASU is 6-1, but they haven’t played anyone except for Creighton (who crushed them) and their non-conference schedule is one of the weakest in the Pac-12.

9. Washington (4-3) last: 10

The Huskies beat a solid St. Louis team and then barely escaped defeat against Cal State Fullerton. We have yet to figure this team out.

10. USC Trojans (3-4) last: 8

The Trojans are on a three game losing skid with a recent loss to Nebraska.

11. Utah Utes (5-2) last:12

A loss to Southern Methodist is not surprising.

12. Washington State Cougars (5-3) last:12

A win against Gonzaga this week could take the Cougars out of the cellar.
