Sonoran Hot Reads: Pac-12 basketball goes the way of Pac-12 football

What is happening to the conference?

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

It was supposed to be a great year for the Pac-12 in basketball. Seven teams made the tournament, and all were higher seeds than their opponents. But after one round, only two teams remain, the Utah Utes and Oregon Ducks, the same two teams that prevailed over the rest in the Pac-12 Tournament last weekend. This Robert guy who wrote into Ted Miller about the similarity between basketball and football makes an interesting point. While it's true that the way the two sports crown champions are totally different, it is a bit concerning that the Pac-12 hasn't won a championship in either sport since 2004
