Midseason All-Pac 10 Teams

pac10logo.jpgThe Pac 10 is a conference that doesn’t get a lot of love, unless you live in the West. A lot of this has to do with the time zone conflicts, and some of it has to do with the pace of play. Their top three teams (UCLA, Washington State, and Stanford) currently rank 240th, 333rd, and 274th in Game Tempo. The public as a whole generally likes to see fast pace, high scoring teams. You won’t get much of that from the Pac 10. Whether you like their style of play, or not, you have to respect them. Pac 10 currently has four ranked teams in the AP Top 25 (Washington State, UCLA, Stanford, and Arizona State). The funny thing is that Arizona and USC are just as good, if not better than Arizona State. The only weak spot in the Pac 10 appears to be Oregon State. The experience in the Pac 10 this year is it’s strong suite. Finding an All-Freshman team was pretty easy considering the amount of freshman in the entire Pac 10 that play more than 20 minutes/game is around 10. Onto the Mid-Season Pac 10 Awards:

  1. Weaver’s defense is definitely very impressive, and he’s got NBA potential. His numbers have dipped from last season though, and his 1.7 Assist/TO Ratio is dwarfed by teammate Rochestie (3/1 Assist/TO). He’s definitely someone to keep an eye on during conference play.
