Here's an early glance at the Pac-12 Hoops Power Rankings, where Cal makes a big jump and Oregon takes a tumble.

1. Arizona (17-0, 4-0) – So, they’re good.

2. UCLA (13-3, 2-1) – Gave Arizona a run, then dominated Jahii Carson.

3. Colorado (14-3, 3-1) – A million :(s after Spencer Dinwiddie’s injury. Great kid made them good. Now? Who knows?

4. Cal (12-4, 3-0) – Mike Montgomery is getting the absolute most from his players.

5. Oregon (13-3, 1-3) – What the Ducks? Who is this team?

6. Arizona State (13-4, 2-2) – Carson and Jordan Bachynski are still too good a 1-2 punch to count out.

7. Stanford (10-5, 1-2) – Explain how the Cardinal lost at Oregon State but won at Oregon. I’ll wait.

8. Washington (11-6, 3-1)

9. Utah (12-4, 1-3) – Almost knocked off Oregon in what would’ve been a thrilling upset.

10. Washington State (8-8, 1-3) – Nice win over Utah despite injuries was a boon for Ken Bone.

11. Oregon State (9-7, 1-3)

12. USC (9-7, 0-3) – Still almost completely devoid of talent.
