It was another interesting week of Pac-10 basketball, with a few surprises along the way. I'm pretty happy with where the Wildcats are right now, and the Pac-10 as a whole. Lets hope the Pac-10 earns a little more respect this season. I'm still a little bummed that neither Arizona, nor Oregon were able to pull of the upset this week, although Arizona looks to improve as a result of their game with #6 Kansas. Big thumbs up to Cal, for their defeat of #11 Temple. That's the way to make the Pac-10 look good.
Ok, so your AZ Desert Swarm staff members took a couple shots to the stomach this week, going 14-5, and finishing 8th out of 9 for week 2. Ouch. We'll need to step up our game a bit.
