Insta-reaction to Pac-12 developments on and off the field (and court) … 1. Washington coasts home. The Hotline declared the conference race over-and-out exactly two weeks ago, when the Huskies held a three-game lead (loss column) with 10 to play. Well, now it’s really over. After executing better than — or: not executing as poorly as — Washington State in the final minutes, the Huskies escaped Pullman with a 72-70 victory and hold a three-game lead (loss column) with six to play. Except it’s not really three games; it’s more. It’s more because Oregon State, which is currently alone in second place … let that sink in for a minute … already lost at home to UW and still has to play in Seattle. And it’s more than three games because one of Washington’s six remaining is a stone-cold lock: at Cal. The Beavers (8-4), on the other hand, don’t play Cal — they don’t have an equivalent lock left on the schedule: at USC and UCLAvs. Arizona and Arizona Stateat Washington and Washington State There’s no chance the Beavers get through that stretch 6-0. To finish in a first-place tie at 13-5, the Huskies would have to lose to four of their five opponents not named Cal. Turn out the lights … 2. The rise is real (in this surreal conference). On Jan 31, Colorado lost at home to Oregon State and fell to 2-6 in conference play. Since then, the Buffaloes have won four in a row. Two days later, Utah lost at home to Oregon State and dropped to 5-4 in conference play. Since then, the Utes have won three out of four. The Mountain schools aren’t in the regular-season race … nobody is … but the Utes and Buffaloes look like tough outs in the Pac-12 tournament for everybody, including Washington. (If the options in Las Vegas are Washington or everyone else, the Hotline will take everyone else, thankyouverymuch.) The key for Utah and CU is securing an opening-round bye, but there probably isn’t room in the top-four for both. At the moment, the Utes are tied for third with Arizona State and one game ahead of Colorado. The remaining rivalry game is in Boulder, on the penultimate weekend of the season. 3. Another bad loss. USC left the Bay Area with a split. I can’t help but think the Trojans should have produced a sweep. USC is now 7-6 in conference play. I can’t help but think the Trojans should be two or three games better. The Pac-12 has a full house of underachieving teams — you don’t get this close to one-bid territory without them, after all — but when it comes to doing less with more, the Trojans are up there with the best of ’em. How many other teams have two all-conference frontcourt players and a wing headed for the first round of the NBA Draft? Now that’s a short list. Sure, Kevin Porter was injured (and suspended), but he has played significant minutes in seven conference games. The Trojans are 2-5 in those games, with one of the wins coming against Cal. Yep, coach Andy Enfield is 2-5 against conference opponents with Porter, Bennie Boatwright, Nick Rakocevic and Jonah Mathews, one of the best 3-point shooters in the Pac-12, all healthy. Whether it’s missed free throws or botched late-game execution or just general malfunction, the Trojans have more losses than they should given the personnel. The latest example came Thursday: Up four with 1:09 left, they couldn’t close out a Stanford team that was missing its two best players, KZ Okpala (fouled out) and Daejon Davis (injured). The Hotline is confident, however, that we haven’t seen the last instance of the Trojans losing games they should win. 4. Oregon’s goings and comings. The most intriguing late-week stories in Pac-12 football unfolded in Eugene, where the Ducks lost a coordinator and gained a receiver and, in the process, took two steps toward winning the North. The addition, for those who might have missed the news, is receiver Juwan Johnson, who joins the Ducks as a graduate transfer from Penn State. Johnson had just 25 catches last season but is a high-level talent: As a 4-star prospect in high school, he was recruited by Alabama … by Mario Cristobal, in fact. Without Dillon Mitchell, Oregon will be in need of options for quarterback Justin Herbert. Don’t be surprised if the 6-foot-4 Johnson emerges as the top target. Meanwhile, the Ducks’ departure was easy to see coming: defensive coordinator Jim Leavitt is moving on after two seasons in green and one season coaching for the man he used to coach with. Leavitt and Cristobal wanted the job when Willie Taggart bolted 14 months ago. Cristobal got it, Leavitt stayed on staff, and, well … awkward. What’s more, Leavitt didn’t make himself indispensable: The Ducks weren’t lacking for talent but finished in the middle of the conference in most major statistical categories. We expect co-coordinator Keith Heyward to be given full control of the defense. What the Ducks might lose in tactical knowledge with Leavitt’s departure should be offset by the fresh voice and improved cohesion. 5.
