This Week In Pac-12 Basketball - Entering The Slow Season Before Conference Play

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: It's going to be slow for the next couple of weeks outside of a couple of marquee games until Pac-12 play begins. Two great match-ups and a "really, that's the best you could find?" headline the coming week (Washington and Marquette are playing as I type). Lucky for us, the Buffs play two games at the Coors Event Center.

Arizona Wildcats at Florida Gators, Wednesday, 5:00 p.m., ESPN: Coming off of two wins last week, Arizona has a golden opportunity to break back into the Top 25 with a road win over the No. 12 ranked Gators.
Washington Huskies vs. Duke Blue Devils, Saturday, 10:00 a.m., CBS: The Pac-12's second big match-up takes place at Madison Square Garden when the Huskies (who will be huge underdogs) try and take down the No. 5 Blue Devils.
New Mexico Lobos at USC Trojans, Saturday, 5:00 p.m., Fox Sports West: Yep, this is the third best game I could find this week. Hey, the Lobos are 6-2...
