Arizona tabbed to win Pac-12 basketball title by conference media

Despite an uncertain future due to its involvement in an FBI bribery investigation, Arizona remains the team to beat in the Pac-12 for the 2017-18 season. So says the league’s media members, who for the fifth time in six years picked the Wildcats to win the conference.

The Wildcats garnered 22 of 23 first-place votes, with second-place USC getting the other one. According to Pac-12.com this is the 15th time since 1989-90 that Arizona has been the preseason choice to win the league, doing as predicted on nine occasions including 2013-14 and 2014-15.

Arizona returns three starters from last year’s squad, which shared the Pac-12 regular-season title with Oregon and then went on to win the conference tournament.
