USATSI_14156857

It went mostly unnoticed by the national media — the ACC, Big Ten and Big 12 get most of the attention — but the Pac-12 was a much-improved conference last season. Six teams were likely to get into the NCAA tournament field, and Oregon had the best opportunity to go deep. The Ducks won the league (the conference tournament in Las Vegas was canceled at the last minute) and finished 24-7 behind senior Payton Pritchard, one of the elite point guards in college basketball the last two years. Pritchard was picked 26th in the first round of the NBA draft after USC forward Onyeka Okongwu (No. 6), Washington forward Isaiah Stewart (No. 16) and Arizona guard Josh Green (No. 18) went in the top 20.
