Nine games are scheduled this weekend in the Pac-12 conference with some good match-ups included. Here are my six things to look at over the weekend in the conference of champions.
1 The top 10 battle of unbeatens will be the top match-up when 5 Florida Gators (7-0) heads to Tucson to take on the unbeaten 8 Arizona Wildcats (7-0). Tip-off is Saturday night at 7 pm on ESPN.
2 Cal (6-2) returns to the hardwood after a tough loss to San Diego State last weekend. They’ll host 16 Creighton (9-1) and national player of the year candidate Doug McDermott to Haas Pavilion. This game tips at 8 pm on the Pac-12 Network Saturday night.
3 At the Matt the Oregon Ducks (6-2) welcome in Dana Altman’s home state Nebraska Cornhuskers (8-1). Fox Sports Net/ROOT Sports has the game at 1:30 pm from Eugene.
4 Interestingly all nine games will be played at Pac-12 sights, outside of the two ranked opponents nothing to glamorous.
5 Colorado’s Andre Roberson finds himself fourth in rebounding nationally at 12.3 per game.
6 Arizona State has the nation’s fourth best team at blocking shots at 7.90 a contest. They are behind Kansas 9.13, St. John’s 9.00 and Syracuse 8.88.
