Three Pac-12 teams finish the regular season in the top seven. So you have to feel like three Pac-12 teams are in the hunt for a national title.
A look at the AP Poll rankings for Pac-12 teams.
3rd: UCLA Bruins. UCLA finished February with some crucial wins, including beating all of the other three Pac-12 tournament-bound squads. A 2 seed (perhaps a 1 seed?) is definitely within sight if they can beat Arizona and Oregon in the Pac-12 tournament.
5th: Oregon Ducks. Oregon hasn’t had a signature win in awhile, but they’ve taken care of business for much of the season and seem to be in perfect contention.
7th: Arizona Wildcats. Arizona had quite the season, but they’ll still have some work to do if they want favorable seeding come Sunday. A likely matchup against UCLA on Friday will provide them with that opportunity.
The USC Trojans finished 32nd overall.
