This Week In Pac-10 Men's Basketball
Dec. 30, 2008
A couple of non-conference games are on the docket Tuesday before Pac-10 play begins Friday... The Pac-10 was 16-1 over the last week, with a 24.1 point margin of victory in those 16 wins. The Conference posted a 29-3 record over the past two weeks and is 86-29 (.748) in non-league play this season. Compare that to last year's stellar season, where the Pac-10 was 94-25 (.790) in non-conference action before entering league play, and the league hasn't appeared to miss a beat... ARIZONA STATE has opened the season 11-1 for its best start in 34 seasons... STANFORD remains perfect after nine games, while UCLA and WASHINGTON have won six straight... This week's rankings include UCLA (No. 12 AP/No. 9 ESPN/USA Today) and ARIZONA STATE (17/14).
