This Week In Pac-12 Basketball - Conference Takes Center Stage On Thursday Night

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.

Top 3 upcoming games: This week will make the Pac-12 race much more clear as four of the top five teams face off and California faces a tough road match-up against UCLA. The two games on Thursday night is the best combo that the league has had all season. For as much good as a win in Tucson would do for the Buffaloes, a loss against Arizona State would pretty much derail any hope CU has for making the NCAA Tournament without win the conference tourney.

Colorado Buffaloes at Arizona Wildcats, Thursday, 7:00 p.m., ESPN: This is the biggest game of the year so far for the Buffs. A national television audience will watch a CU team that has won five of it's last six games, but is primed to hit the road for five of their last seven in the regular season. The Wildcats did last week what no one else has been able to do this season in winning at both California and Stanford and has been playing much better since their loss in Boulder.
Washington Huskies at Oregon Ducks, Thursday, 9:00 p.m., Root Sports: The Huskies have been on fire of late, winning eight of their last nine to take over the top spot in the conference. Now they have to head to Eugene to face a Ducks team that is still reeling from a controversial, last second loss in Boulder.
California Golden Bears at UCLA Bruins, Saturday, 2:00 p.m., Fox Sports Prime Ticket: The Bruins have been playing better lately, but haven't been able to get over the hump as they fell in some tough, close losses. California needs to make up for a home loss to Arizona in LA.
