A Look Inside the Men's 2010-11 Pac-10 Conference

The Pac-10 Conference had a down year in 2009-10 when many players left early for the NBA. The University of Washington won the conference tournament but Cal won the regular-season conference title.  Many teams are young and still learning the fast-paced style of college basketball.

Other schools saw players transfer out, like Oregon, which lost six players and was hit with imposed sanctions by the NCAA. USC is still suffering from sanctions imposed last year and Arizona has been hit with sanctions by the NCAA as well. USC has to wait one more year to be tournament-eligible. 

Arizona, Washington State, Arizona State and UCLA will give Washington a run for their money during conference play.  Those teams bring back the majority of their players from last year.

It will be interesting to see how the conference unfolds and how many teams get invited to play in March.

The teams that will be struggling in the conference this year will be Oregon, Oregon State, Stanford and Cal. All are in the rebuilding phase, which happens in college sports. How quickly will these teams bounce back and be contenders?

Once March rolls around we will have all the answers, including the answer to the biggest question—just how good is the Pac-10 Conference?
