Pac-12 Basketball: 5-Year Ranking

    
November 15th, 2011

 

As part of our 5-Year Ranking series, here's how the Pac-12 teams stack up according to conference wins. With the exception of Oregon St, every team in the league has had at least two .500 seasons or better in the last five years. The league adds Utah, who was a mid-level MWC team, and Colorado, who was in the bottom rung of the Big 12.


First Tier

1 - UCLA - 65 wins - This is a lot of wins for a program that seems to be a mess right now

2 - Arizona - 52 - While much of the Pac-12 is struggling, Sean Miller seems to building for the future

3 - Washington - 51 - Huskies have the most wins in the league over the last 3 seasons


Second Tier

 

4 - USC - 49 - For better or worse, have settled into a .500 team for the last 3 years

5 - Washington St - 47 - Propped up by 07-08 success, WSU is on the downturn

6 - California - 46 - Mike Montgomery has the Bears climbing the Pac-12 ladder


Wannabees

 

7 - Stanford - 43 - Ho hum sums up the state of Stanford basketball

8 - Arizona St - 38 - Devils have been up and down under Sendek. This seems like a down year

9 - Oregon - 36 - It's been a miserable few seasons for Oregon, but I have faith in Altman


Also-Rans

 

10 - Oregon St - 23 - The league doormat has NIT potential this year, which would be a positive step
