Pac-10 Basketball Pick 'Em: Week 1 Results

The first week of the SBNation Pac-10 Basketball Pick 'Em is complete, and it was a good time.  I'm really going to enjoy picking the Pac-10 games against the other SBNation Pac-10 blogs.  Should be good for some basketball arguments.

The Wildcats look pretty good so far, as does the Pac-10 as a whole.  Some interesting results on a few of the games this week, but over-all the Pac-10 looks solid.  Oregon in particular surprised me, as I thought they would be much stronger than they were this past week.  I'm not sure why, but my gut was telling me the Ducks would be a solid team this season.  We'll see how it goes as the season moves on.

Finishing in sole possesion of first place this week is 'Rule of Tree' with a record of 15-3.

Representing the AZ Desert Swarm staff, I had a record of 13-5, which was better than I expected.

Out of the AZ Desert Swarm fan submissions, TouchdownColts had the best record, at 5-7.
