Oregon, UCLA, Arizona Basketball Fight For The Pac-12 Regular Season Crown

It's a three-team race for the Pac-12 basketball regular season crown.


There is now a three-way tie atop the Pac-12 standings (Oregon, UCLA, Arizona), which team do you think ultimately wins the regular season?

NorcalNick, California Golden Blogs: Oregon holds the tie-breaker and the weakest schedule, Arizona is the best team. That presumably means that UCLA is the longshot, but the Bruins are too mercurial to try to predict. If Dominic Artis doesn't return immediately, I'm going with Arizona. I'm tempted to go with them anyway. The Ducks are supposed to hear from a doctor on Monday, but I'm skeptical that he'll be at full strength regardless, which is why the Wildcats seem to be a safer bet.

Jack Follman, Pacific Takes: Unfortunately I don't feel that great about any of those teams, but I guess I will pick Arizona by default. They haven't played that well in-conference, but they have the best balance of talent, size, experience and coaching of any of those teams.

Adam Butler, Pac Hoops: I still think Arizona wins this thing. They're the most talented roster and across 18-games talent, like cream, rises to the top. They haven't done much to bolster their situation with a pair of home losses but maybe that's ok. They only have three home games remaining! That said, I wouldn't be shocked to see Oregon edge this thing out with the remaining schedule they have.

Shotgun Spratling, Conquest Chronicles: Arizona has proven it knows how to win the close games, which is what champions do down the stretch run of the season.

Parker Baruh, Ralphie Report: Arizona is the most talented and deepest team in the Pac-12 and should win the conference. Their matchup this Thursday against Colorado is crucial, but with the way UCLA is playing right now and Oregon still in question with Dominic Artis injured, I think Sean Miller's team will pull out the Pac-12 title.
