Pac-12 Basketball: Arizona projected to win conference, Washington 5th

Gary A. Vasquez-US PRESSWIRE

The Arizona Wildcats barely topped UCLA in the preseason Pac-12 media poll, and the Washington Huskies came in fifth place.

The Arizona Wildcats edged out the UCLA Bruins in the Pac-12 preseason media poll that was released on Thursday, and the Washington Huskies were picked to come in fifth place in the conference.

Sean Miller's Wildcats barely topped the UCLA Bruins in votes, who with 402 points were only a single vote behind UA. The Bruins received 16 first-place votes to the Wildcats' 15. California and Stanford came in third and fourth in front of the Huskies, who must compensate for the loss of Terrence Ross to the NBA. Lorenzo Romar's squad received 278 votes and earned two first-place nods.

Colorado, Oregon and Oregon State stand in the middle of the conference while USC, Washington State, Arizona State and Utah will attempt to stay out of the basement.

Here's a peek at the full media poll:

1. Arizona, 403 (15)
2. UCLA, 402 (16)
3. California, 325 (3)
4. Stanford, 296
5. Washington, 278 (2)
6. Colorado, 262
7. Oregon, 217
8. Oregon State, 166
9. USC, 163
10. Washington State, 111
11. Arizona State, 107
12. Utah, 78
