Oregon Hoops blogger Jason Green points out the obvious. March Madness is a slim possibility. The Oregon Ducks led by E.J. Singler will have to win some big Pac 12 games and get off to a great start, since the Ducks only face one team ranked in the preseason top 25 in the first half of the season.
Insider Steve weighs in with five things to watch for with the Washington State Cougars basketball team in 2011/12. Ken Bone is a fine coach but will he have a competitive team this year remains to be seen. Reggie Moore, D.J. Shelton and Brock Motum have to have HUGE seasons.
