Doug Haller at Arizona Central
1. UCLA ... Yes, I know the Bruins have questions in their backcourt, but their frontcourt will be among the best in college basketball. Joshua Smith and Reeves Nelson both could contend for Pac-12 Player of the Year honors. That's too much to ignore.
Haller basically says that the conference won't be around two teams like last year but will be much deeper. I'm surprised he placed the UoA at third behind Cal. He believes Tyler Lamb is the key to all UCLA success in the back court.
