PAC-10 CONFERENCE NOTES
PAC-10 TEAMS GEAR UP FOR THE STATE FARM PAC-10 TOURNAMENT: With the regular season officially over, Pac-10 teams turn their attention to the 2010 State Farm Pac-10 Tournament held in Los Angeles, Calif., March 11-14. Stanford has clinched the top seed in the tournament for the ninth-straight year, winning the regular-season crown for the 18th time overall. UCLA earned the No. 2 seed after winning a program-tying 15 league games, and USC is the third seed, its best seeding since 2004.
The first six games of the first two days of the tournament will be streamed live on the internet by visiting www.10teams1trophy.com or www.pac-10.org. The semifinal and championship games will be televised nationally on Fox Sports Net on Saturday and Sunday.
STANFORD, UCLA RANKED IN NATIONAL POLLS: Two Pac-10 teams are ranked among the top 25 in the nation for the first time since the week of Jan. 4. With its only loss of the season to date coming to No. 1 Connecticut, the Cardinal is holding steady in the No. 2 spot in the Associated Press and ESPN/USA Today Coaches polls. UCLA entered the AP poll for the first time since Nov. 20, 2006 and is ranked No. 23 in both.
California was ranked in the top 25 in both rankings the first five weeks of the season. Arizona State also appeared in the national rankings for the first nine weeks of the season. Arizona, Oregon and USC have received votes in one or both polls this season, while the Bruins got votes in the first AP poll of the year.
GRAY-LAWSON EARNS PRESTIGIOUS HONOR: California SR G Alexis Gray-Lawson was awarded the WBCA's Frances Pomeroy Naismith Award, presented to the nation's top player standing 5-foot-8 and under. Gray-Lawson is the second Pac-10 player to ever earn the award and the first since Rhonda Windham of USC won it in 1987.
