    Pac 12 MBB preseason poll
    1. Oregon (9) 291
    2. Colorado (9) 288
    3. Washington (6) 273
    4. Arizona (2) 263
    5. USC (1) 198
    6. Arizona State 187
    7. Oregon State 161
    8. UCLA 148
    9. Utah 131
    10. Stanford 84
    11. Wash State 47
    12. Cal 35

    I think USC should be 4th or 3rd but kinda surprised at fucla being 8th to be honest.

    3rd or 4th is certainly doable (or better), but it looks like Conference is viewed in 3 tiers, with Top 4 all within 30 voting points, the next 5 within 70 voting points, and a distant bottom 3.

    From a scheduling standpoint, SC is disadvantaged in that we play 3 of top 4 teams twice (not Oregon), but only 1 of the bottom 3 twice (Wash St). Though, if SC takes care of business against Tier 2 and 3 (which has been an issue in the past), then they have 7 games against top 4 that can improve our spot in the standings and rankings.
