Arizona Weekend, Battle for Pac-12 and Bracketology

Arizona Weekend

Ashley Westhem (The Stanford Daily) reviews Stanford's games vs ASU and Arizona in: Women’s basketball finds itself on the wrong end of history

Battle for Pac-12

With three weeks left in the Pac-12 season, the top four spots are still up for grabs. Steve Gress (Corvallis Gazette-Times) writes about the prospects of the top four teams in: Battle for Pac-12 going down to the wire


Charlie Creme (espnW) still has six Pac-12 teams in his bracket with these seedings and evaluation:

2 Oregon State
Despite their first Pac-12 loss (at Washington), the Beavers are right back on top of the league -- all by themselves -- after Arizona State and Stanford stumbled, too.
3 Arizona State
The Sun Devils swept Stanford for the first time since 1984 with a win on Friday, but didn't have the same energy two days later and lost at home to Cal, which dropped them into second place in the Pac-12.
4 California
Despite losing Brittany Boyd late in the game to a possible concussion, the Bears avenged last month's 15-point loss to Arizona State and beat the Sun Devils at the buzzer in Tempe. Cal has won seven in a row since that loss to ASU.
5 Washington
The Huskies stunned Oregon State behind some clutch 3-point shooting from Jazmine Davis and Aminah Williams to recover from a tough road trip through northern California. But UW still sits fifth in the Pac-12 with little chance of changing that.
6 Stanford
A lost weekend in Arizona probably ended the Cardinal's chance at a 15th straight Pac-12 regular-season championship.
11 Washington State
The Cougars have two separate four-game losing streaks and just squeeze in as the last team in the field. Their good wins -- Dayton, Maryland and Gonzaga -- are better than anything their chief competitors have.
