The Pac-10 tournament starts tonight in Los Angeles. If you're looking for a prediction, I'll take UCLA. But proof that this league is wildly unpredictable and lacking a true dominant force can be found in the following bit of information:
- No. 1 seed Washington was swept this season by No. 3 seed California.
- No. 2 seed UCLA was swept this season by No. 4 seed Arizona State.
- No. 3 seed California was swept this season by No. 8 seed Oregon State.
- No. 4 seed Arizona State was swept this season by No. 7 seed Washington State.
Arizona is the only true bubble team in the Pac-10.
The Wildcats play Arizona State on Thursday.
Win that, and they're in the field.
Lose that, and who knows?
