Welcome to our weekly look at Pac-12 basketball. We take a quick look at what happened in the past week and breakdown the best games in the week to come. This is a new feature so let me know what you would like to see going forward.
Top 3 upcoming games: Good slate on Saturday and Sunday even though the Buffs aren't playing. UCLA - Texas is the other good one not listed.
USC Trojans at Minnesota Golden Gophers, Saturday, 12:15 p.m., Big Ten Network: The Trojans head north to attempt to beat the Gophers on their home court. A loss here sends the Trojans to 4-5 or 3-6 with New Mexico, UGA, and Kansas ahead.
N.C. State Wolfpack at Stanford Cardinal, Sunday, 2:00 p.m., FSN: Stanford tries to continue their surprising start against a Wolfpack team that has already beaten Texas.
