The media poll for the Pac-10 was released yesterday at the conference’s media day, and the Washington Huskies saw themselves projected to finish second in the conference to the California Golden Bears.
It was widely assumed that the media would choose between Washington and Cal in a weaker Pac-10 conference. Cal received 25 first place votes, Washington received 7, and UCLA received five. No other team was given a first place vote.
Here is the full media projection…
- Oregon State
- Arizona State
- Washington State
Among the notable quotes from coaches during yesterday’s press conferences were Ernie Kent saying that Michael Dunigan has dropped more than 40 pounds from last year, Herb Sendek saying that offense is going to be more of a group effort for the Sun Devils, Craig Robinson said that the Beavers will have to be careful not to expect wins to come easier now that they are a sleeper pick, and Lorenzo Romar saying that Isaiah Thomas has greatly improved his defense.
