Pac-12 Hoops Roundup & Assessing Cal's Offensive Woes

January 22, 2020

Here we are at the begging of week four of Pac-12 play. Stanford and USC are sharing the conference’s top spot while Washington, Oregon State, and Utah duke it out for the bottom. Everyone saw this coming, right?

Let’s start with the Cardinal. I’m still not totally sold on Furd. Its schedule has been frontloaded to be easy. The conference only has four teams ranked sub-100 in KenPom and Stanford played three of them in its first five games. In its two games against top-100 KenPom teams, the Cardinals squeaked by a reeling Washington team at home and blew a 20-point halftime lead to lose in overtime to USC on the road.
