    Pac 12 Hoops 2019-2020

    A good start for the league last night going 5 for 5 with Utah and Cal probably surprising some folks. Cal trailed early against Pepperdine, but rallied for a convincing win. We'll take anything we can get from Cal this season.

    Three more games tonight, but nothing to write home about.

    The first big opportunities the league has come on Friday:

    Washington vs. Baylor in Alaska
    Arizona St. vs. Colorado in China (irony).
    “It only ends once. Anything that happens before that is just progress.”

    Well, because he thought it was good sport. Because some men aren't looking for anything logical, like money. They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned, or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn.

    shocked and surprised that we won last night.

    I want to say that Krysko took an "Alford Plea" to seal that win last night.

    I admit to not following Cal or Pepperdine closely, but why would anyone think Cal over Pepperdine is surprising?

    Because Cal was shitty last year.

    Yeah, but isn't that Pepperdine every year?

    Pepperdine came into the season at like 104 in the KenPom ratings and Cal was 178, so Pepperdine was a projected winner by those measures. I think the expectation of Cal is that they could be historically bad. A home game vs. them will most likely be a Q4 game, which is why we'll take any win that keeps them in the top 200. As it is, they moved from 178 to 152, so, moving on up!

    Maybe I'm incriminating myself on my inattentiveness to PAC 12 basketball right now, but why are you ASU and Colorado playing in China? Does it count as a conference game? That's two of the projected better teams in the conference so it will be interesting to see how that goes.

    It's part of the Pac 12 China series...I think this is the third year they've done it? Last year it was Cal and Yale.

    It will not count as a league game.

    The Pac-12 has started well. No huge wins, but no embarrassing losses either. And because of that, we can all root against Arizona right now with a clear conscience.

    Baylor and Iowa St. are really good wins, I think.

    Oregon gets a crack at Memphis tomorrow, which should be a top 50 team all year long. Oregon St. plays Oklahoma in the same event. Even WSU going to Santa Clara and getting a win would be nice.

    But yes! Good start for the league!

    Couple of intriguing games for the league tonight:

    Oregon vs. Memphis & Oregon St. vs. Oklahoma in Portland (Phil Knight Invitational).

    Cal vs. UNLV (UNLV actually plays Pac 12 foes back to back, getting UCLA on Friday)

    WSU @ Santa Clara - Believe it or not, this game could help Wazzu and the league. Santa Clara is 122 in KenPom and a road win for WSU would be really nice.

    Donnie Tilman with 17 points and 9 rebs last night for UNLV

    Oregon looked pretty good beating Memphis, typical Ducks - long and athletic
