Pac-12 Basketball Report

The Pac-12 basketball race had a familiar face at the top when the regular season came to an end yesterday, but the Washington Huskies weren’t expected to be there. With freshman and sophomores in key roles and then a slow start in December, it was rebuilding team for Lorenzo Romar. Or so we thought. Washington instead went 14-4 in league play behind the backcourt trio of Tony Wroten, C.J. Wilcox and Terrence Ross. They made it interesting in the final weekend, losing to UCLA on Saturday and giving preseason favorite Cal a chance to redeem themselves and at least claim a share of the title. But Cal dumped a game to Stanford and the Huskies became the champs of the league no one wanted to win.
