Pac-12 basketball standings: Arizona Wildcats back on top

Wildcats are back.

NCAA Basketball: Washington at Arizona Casey Sapio-USA TODAY Sports

1. Arizona Wildcats (9-0 in conference, 20-2 overall). Nine up, nine down. A win at Oregon this week would put the Wildcats in firm command of the Pac-12 title race.

2. Oregon Ducks (8-1 in conference, 19-3 overall). Likewise, Oregon has some work to do, but they too have a great shot at winning this conference if they can knock off Arizona this week and take the tiebreaker.

3. (tied)

UCLA Bruins (6-3 in conference, 19-3 overall). UCLA’s third loss probably takes them out of the running for the conference crown. Their seeding is now of paramount importance.

California Golden Bears (6-3 in conference, 15-6 overall). Cal is as firmly a bubble team as you can find. The win over USC is helpful, but Cal could use an Oregon/Arizona/Utah win.

Utah Utes (6-3 in conference, 15-6 overall). Utah is beginning to pop up on some brackets, but like Cal, they need some resume boosters.

6. USC Trojans (5-4 in conference, 18-4 overall). USC can probably feel much safer about their tournament chances after upsetting UCLA, but the work is far from over.

7. Washington State Cougars (4-5 in conference, 11-10 overall). The Cougars have overachieved after a miserable non-conference record, but they are still miles away from qualifying for anything.

8 (tied)

Stanford Cardinal (3-6 in conference, 11-10 overall). Stanford is running out of chances for marquee wins.

Arizona State Sun Devils (3-6 in conference, 10-12 overall). Arizona State has more wins than you’d think at this stage.

10 (tied)

Colorado Buffaloes (2-7 in conference, 12-10 overall). Colorado somehow pulled off one of the biggest upsets of the year against Oregon. They have much work to do to get onto the bubble.

Washington Huskies (2-7 in conference, 9-12 overall). Washington has one of the best players in the nation, but it’s not looking like Markelle Fultz will be playing in March.

12. Oregon State Beavers (0-9 in conference, 4-18 overall). Baseball season is on its way Beavers!
