NCAA Basketball Standings: Stanford Cardinal, California Bears Sit Atop Pac-12 Conference

After three weeks of Pac-12 Conference play, there is one thing that is clear, aside from the fact that this is a terrible year for the conference. The Cal Bears and Stanford Cardinal have been the class of the conference so far in the 2011-2012 season, as both Bay Area schools sit atop the Pac-12 basketball standings:

Pac-12 Basketball Standings
Team Conf. Overall Last Week Sagarin Rating Pomeroy Rating Next Week
California 5-1 15-4 2-0 24 16 at Washington, at WSU
Stanford 5-1 15-3 2-0 40 42 at WSU, at Washington
Washington 4-1 11-6 2-0 84 94 Cal, Stanford
Oregon 4-2 13-5 2-0 79 95 USC, UCLA
Arizona 3-2 12-6 1-1 65 52 at Utah, at Colorado
Colorado 3-2 11-6 0-2 91 107 ASU, Arizona
UCLA 3-2 10-7 1-0 92 67 at OSU, at Oregon
Arizona State 2-3 6-11 1-1 186 171 at Colorado, at Utah
Washington State 1-4 9-8 0-1 124 121 Stanford, Cal
Utah 1-4 4-13 0-2 291 316 Arizona, ASU
Oregon State 1-5 11-7 0-2 94 74 UCLA, USC
USC 0-5 5-13 0-1 165 147 at Oregon, at OSU

The conference hasn't had a team ranked in the top 25 of either the Associated Press poll or ESPN/USA Today coaches poll in six weeks, and that doesn't figure to change any time soon. Stanford was the only team to receive any votes, finishing 35th in both polls. This week will let us know whether or not the Washington Huskies (4-1, third place in the Pac-12) are for real.

The UCLA Bruins and USC Trojans travel to the Pacific Northwest this week for battles with Oregon and Oregon State. The Oregon Ducks had a big week this last week with a rare sweep in Arizona.
