SAN FRANCISCO -- The Arizona Wildcats were picked to win the Pac-12 Conference by the slimmest of margins over UCLA, in the conference's official media poll released this morning.

The Wildcats received one more point than the Bruins -- but one less first-place vote -- to finish on top.

Arizona has finished within one spot of the poll's predicted spot in each of coach Sean Miller's previous three seasons. UA was picked fourth in 2009-10 and finished in a fifth-place tie, it was picked second in 2010-11 and won the league, and the Wildcats were picked third and finished fourth last season.

The full results of the poll, voted on by media members who regularly cover the league, with total points and first-place votes in parentheses:

1. Arizona (15) 403

2. UCLA (16) 402

3. California (3) 325

4. Stanford 296

5. Washington (2) 278

6. Colorado 262

7. Oregon 217

8. Oregon State 166

9. USC 163

10. Washington State 111

11. Arizona State 107

12. Utah 78
