• The Conference of Champions once again boasts five teams in the AP top 25, three of which are ranked in the top 10. STANFORD is ranked #1 for the sixth-straight week, and is followed by #8 UCLA, #10 OREGON, #11 ARIZONA and #25 WASHINGTON STATE with ARIZONA STATE receiving votes. The Cougars, who were picked last in both the Pac-12 preseason coaches and media polls, are ranked in the AP poll for the first time in school history on the strength of their upset of the Wildcats, which earned them Team of the Week recognition.
• For the seventh time this season, the Pac-12 will boast an AP Top 25 matchup in Conference play with #11 ARIZONA hosting #10 OREGON this Thursday at 4 p.m. PT / 5 p.m. MT on ESPN, marking the first time in program history the Wildcats will play on ESPN in the regular season. The ranked matchups continue on Sunday as #8 UCLA hosts #25 WASHINGTON STATE at 11 a.m. PT / 12 p.m. MT on Pac-12 Network.
• STANFORD holds the top spot in the latest NET Rankings, followed by #3 OREGON, #9 UCLA, #18 ARIZONA, #35 WASHINGTON STATE, #60 USC, #70 COLORADO, #73 ARIZONA STATE and #74 WASHINGTON for nine teams inside the top 75. The three teams in the top 10 are the most of any other conference.
• Four Pac-12 student-athletes (ARIZONA’s Aari McDonald, STANFORD’s Haley Jones and Kiana Williams, and UCLA’s Michaela Onyenwere) have been named to the John R. Wooden Award Midseason Top 25 Watch List. The honor is presented annually to the most outstanding player in college basketball. A Pac-12 student-athlete has won the award in back-to-back years and in three of the past four seasons (Kelsey Plum in 2017 and Sabrina Ionescu in 2019 and 2020).
• ESPN’s Charlie Creme’s latest bracketology has six Pac-12 teams in the 2021 NCAA Tournament. Creme has STANFORD earning the top overall seed, ARIZONA, OREGON and UCLA each tabbed as No. 3 seeds, ARIZONA STATE as a No. 7 seed and WASHINGTON STATE at No. 9. If it holds, the No. 1 seed would be the first for the Conference since 2013.
