: : UCLA won by 35 over OSU. UCLA looks like a different team than ever before. Close looks like she's pulled the proverbial rabbit out of the hat because they looked great.
: : Oregon Sunday might be the Pac Game of the Season.
: On the sidelines, Close looks like she knows this season will make or break her at UCLA. She has lot more urgency and she looked sad at the end of the game, but not as sad as the fans or the team.
: This team started the season, same as last. Pac 12 favorites to win. No one thinks that anymore. Talen twise, I think this team is a Final Four contender. Coaching wise, I think the ceiling is Elite eight, max.
Oregon is class of the Pac 12. Their best player had an off day offensively but still made plays to get teammates shots.
If Canada is off, UCLA is done. They spend way too much time watching her and waiting for her to do something.
She is a great player, but Close has made this team all about her, which is going to hurt them come March.
Even though Ionescu is unquestioned leader of Oregon, the entire team is working together and making things happen. And Graves is the better coach.
Pac 12 looking at 6-7 teams in NCAA:
Oregon, UCLA, ASU, Stanford, Oregon State, Cal, USC.
