  1. No. 6 Oregon (Last: 1)

 

The Ducks come off a sweep of the Arizona schools in dominant fashion, winning 93-60 against Arizona. They are undefeated through six conference games for the second time in franchise history.

 

  1. No. 5 Stanford (Last: 2)

 

Stanford dominated both UW and WSU at home this past weekend to remain tied for first in Pac-12 conference wins. With a 16-1 record, the Cardinal falls right behind Oregon’s 17-1 record.

 

  1. Utah (Last: 7)

 

The Utes have been a pleasant surprise this season, only losing one game. They had a big win over Colorado and have a crucial match-up this weekend against Stanford.

 

  1. No. 10 Oregon State (Last: 4)

 

Oregon State recieved their first loss of conference play this past Sunday at the hands of Arizona State in double overtime. They look to rebound from their loss as they take on the Washington schools next.

 

  1. No. 19 Arizona State (Last: 6)

 

The Sun Devils have not had the start to conference play they were hoping for, but after a gritty win over Oregon State, they look to be headed in the right direction as they go into the second half of conference play.

 

  1. Cal (Last: 8)

 

The Golden Bears took advantage of their home court by winning both of their conference games against WSU and UW. Their next contests will be a road trip to Colorado and Utah.

 

  1. Arizona (Last: 3)

 

The Wildcats had to take on three top-10 ranked teams in a one-week span, where they ended up losing to all three. Their schedule lightens up a bit as they look to move back up the standings after they take on USC and UCLA this week.

 

  1. UCLA (Last: 5)

 

UCLA has lost their last four conference games, the most recent against their crosstown rivals, USC. They look to get back on track after falling down in the standings this week.

 

  1. WSU (Last: 10)

 

The Cougars have lost their last two games, despite the strong play from redshirt junior forward Borislava Hristova. They have a tough challenge ahead of them as they host Oregon and Oregon State.

 

  1. USC (Last: 11)

 

USC was able to snap a five-game losing streak and get their first conference win after defeating UCLA for the first time in three years.

 

  1. Washington (Last: 12)

 

Washington continued to struggle in conference play, despite giving Cal a run for their money on Sunday.

Colorado is the last team in the Pac-12  still  searching for their first win in conference play, leaving them at the bottom.
