Pac-10 Basketball Tournament 2011: Ranking the Potential Upsets

The Pac-10 tournament officially got under way last night with the opening-round games. Oregon State defeated Stanford for the honor to get destroyed by Arizona today, while Oregon beat Arizona State in order to be dismissed by UCLA tonight.

Unlike those two matchups, there are some plausible upsets. With this conference being widely viewed as the weakest BCS conference in the country, there are a handful of teams capable of upsetting the top teams because those top teams have some flaws.

Also, it's not like Arizona and UCLA completely demolished their way through conference play; they lost four and five games respectively, so there are teams who will have confidence knowing they've defeated the top teams before.

This list of possible upsets is ordered in terms of shock value. I also took into consideration not just the actual game, but the road that "Cinderella" team would take just to get to that round.
