Looking ahead: Pac-12 preview
Arizona ready to challenge for title; Jordan Adams' star is rising
The Pac-12, after a strong showing this past season with six NCAA tournament teams, should not see much of a drop-off in 2014-15. Arizona returns three starters and will have even more depth. UCLA, despite losing Kyle Anderson and Zach LaVine to the NBA draft, reloaded in recruiting. Oregon will have one of the best backcourts in the league, and Colorado returns everyone but Spencer Dinwiddie (who declared for the draft this week). Add in that Cuonzo Martin is inheriting a roster talented enough to make the NCAA tournament this upcoming year and you can see why expectations are high in the league.
