Basketball: ESPN.com picks Bears to win Pac-10

Check out ESPN.com for its preseason Pac-10 Conference preview. There are discussions of various issues related to the league and team-by-team notes from Andy Katz. 

Doug Gottlieb picks the league’s finish, and projects the Golden Bears to finish on top, ahead of Washington, Oregon State and UCLA. He has Stanford 10th, which will be a fashionable pick. In the interests of disclosure, it should be noted that Gottlieb’s brother, Gregg, is a Cal assistant. But the picks are solid, nonetheless.
