The UCLA Bruins are the three-time defending Pac-10 champeens in mens basketball. Mike Montgomerys Cal squad and its lights-out shooters have been on a tear. And the Arizona State Sun Devils, ranked in the Top 25 all season, have a chance of winning their first conference championship ever.
However, theres one Pac-10 team, the Washington Huskies, that we bet youve been sleeping on. Aside from senior forward and 2007-08 All-Pac-10 second-teamer Jon Brockman, the dawgs are led by a bunch of no-names, such as 5-8 freshman point guard Isaiah Thomas. However, they can ball up just about anybody, as evidenced by a dominating win against Oklahoma State and a strong start to the conference season.
