Are the Beavers every Pac-12 fan’s second favorite school now? There was some question a few weeks ago whether Wayne Tinkle would return? Now the Beavers are in the Sweet 16 with a fair chance to make the Elite Eight.
And let’s remember there are a lot of Southern California players (Ethan Thompson, Roman Silva, Jarod Lucas, Gianni Hunt, Julien Franklin, Isaiah Johnson).
The “Conference of Champions” shtick is paying off like never before as the Pac-12 is actually living up to Walton’s hyperbole. Walton’s act also keeps us from thinking about Larry Scott the past week.

A shot off the crossbar prevented the Trojans from sending the NCAA championship match into OT. Tough loss too when you get to host it.
Didn’t get to enjoy winning an NCAA title Sunday and even worse, it was the first NCAA title watch of new UCLA athletic director Martin Jarmond.
