Basketball: Cal zooms to top of ESPN’s Pac-12 power ratings; Lunardi projects 6 from Pac

Not sure which one of these is more surprising/impressive:

— ESPN.com’s Jason King has moved Cal to the top of his weekly Pac-12 power ratings.

— ESPN bracketologist Joe Lunardi is projecting six (6!) Pac-12 teams into the NCAA tournament field: Cal, Arizona, ASU, Colorado, Oregon and UCLA. He still envisions the Bears playing in the play-in first-round game at Dayton, Ohio, matched against Ole Miss in a battle for the No. 12 seed┬áheaded to Kansas┬áCity.
