California Golden Bears Getting Some Respect In Power Ranking of Pac-12
That can be expected as UCLA and Arizona get top recruits all of the time, plus some great players are returning on both teams. The Buffaloes will be returning a large amount of talent and have very high expectations, hence the No. 2 ranking in this power ranking.
Leading scorer Allen Crabbe may be gone, but in comes four-star recruit Jabari Bird. Not to mention, Justin Cobbs will be back, among other players.
Cobbs is the highest scorer returning. He averaged 15.1 points per game last season. Him and Bird will be scoring threats all season long and should help make up quite the combo.
However, it will not be easy to win the conference title. Arizona is going to be a top five team or at least it should be in the rankings once the season starts. It does not help that Colorado will basically bring back everyone, minus Andre Roberson.
UCLA loses its head coach, but it also brings back a couple of key players.
An NCAA tournament appearance is likely going to happen once again, which is all that matters in the grand scheme of things.
