As Pac-12 Basketball continues on, which teams are starting to separate themselves in league play?
League play in Pac 12 Basketball is underway, with teams playing anywhere from 3-5 games due to COVID 19 issues. Let’s take a look at where each team falls in our current power rankings.
12. Washington Huskies
It’s been quite a turnaround for the Washington Huskies in the last two years. Going from an NCAA Tournament to the last place in the PAC 12 and being 1-9 this season and 0-5 in the conference. You start to wonder if Mike Hopkins’s time in Seattle may be coming to a close.
Take a look at there Kenpom rankings from the last three years.
Last year’s team did have Quade Green become ineligible halfway through the year. They also lost some very close games but this is a big drop off.
Going back to the 2020-2021 Washington Huskies, They lost their last two games at the Bay Area schools last week to Stanford 91-75 and Cal 84-78. Green has been a good player for them. He is averaging 15.5 points per game and 40 percent shooting. But the rest of their roster has really struggled with Jamal Bey being their 2nd leading scorer is at 7.3 points per game.
Erik Stevenson a transfer from Wichita State who had high preseason expectations. Is averaging 6.1 points per game on 31% shooting. But he did play really well against Cal scoring 27 points.
Washington is the only team in the league without a conference win. Right now they are the 12th team in my power rankings.
