Pac-10 “Player of the Week”
The week long war of words between Washington point guard Isaiah Thomas and Klay Thompson added even more fuel to the fire for this mid-season rivalry game. In front of a frenzied crowd Thompson and the Washington State Cougars ended their drought against the Washington Huskies with a convincing 87-80 victory. Thompson scored 25 points on 9 of 18 shooting from the floor and 3 of 6 from behind the three point line. He also contributed 2 rebounds, 4 assists, a block and 5 steals while breaking out of a personal slump against the Huskies. This was a must have game for the Cougars within the Pac-10 Conference and as a resume builder for NCAA Tournament consideration.
What’s “Hot” in the Pac-10?
With the conference schedule now at the midway point, it is time to take a look at possible tournament teams and scenarios. Last year the Pac-10 struggled to get two teams into the NCAA Tournament, but that shouldn’t be the case this year. Assuming that Washington and Arizona don’t collapse down the stretch, both teams appear to be in and playing for seeding. UCLA could make a big statement this week against a solid St. John’s team from the Big East. Washington State’s win against in-state rival Washington was a huge leap forward, but the Cougars can’t afford many missteps.
Traditionally the Big Sky, Big West, MWC, Pac-10, WAC and WCC get awarded approximately 12 tournament bids in a given year. The Big Sky and Big West are traditionally one bid conferences, leaving roughly 10 tournament slots available for the other four conferences. Saint Mary’s and Utah State appear tournament bound at this point and could assist the Pac-10 greatly if each wins their conference tournament and secure an automatic bid. If Saint Mary’s and Utah State both lock up automatic bids it would leave eight spots to divide between the MWC and Pac-10. Under this scenario either Cal or USC would have a shot at making the tournament if they finish above .500 in conference plus make a decent run in the Pac-10 Tournament. Realistically, however, Cal and USC appear to be on the outside looking in.

What’s “Cold” in the Pac-10?
The bottom half of the Pac-10 standings yields only one team with a legitimate chance of playing their way into the NCAA Tournament. USC has quality non-conference wins against Tennessee and Texas. As each day passes, SC’s win against Texas looks more and more impressive. If the Trojans can string together a couple of high-profile wins in the second half of conference play, they could surpass Washington State as the fourth team out of the Pac-10. Stanford and Oregon are both still playing for secondary post-season tournaments, while Arizona State and Oregon State are playing out the season as spoilers.
