What I’m Watching Tonight: 2/25/10

By Brady Stiff

As an Indiana Alum and Hoosier basketball fan, I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t going to watch tonight’s game against Wisconsin.  Like I said in the podcast, I’ve got a feeling tonight could be the night that Indiana knocks off one of the big boys.

What I would be watching if Indiana wasn’t playing, though, is a Pac-10 battle.

Arizona at California – 9 PM Eastern on ESPN

To say that this has been a down year for the West coast, and more specifically the Pac-10, is an understatement.  The conference hasn’t had anyone ranked in the Top 25 since January 4th, and that was Washington.

Jerome Randle leads the Bears against the Wildcats tonight.

According to the latest Bracketology by ESPN’s Joe Lunardi, the Pac-10 will be a one bid league this season, which is unheard of for a major conference like the Pac-10.  That one team is Cal, and he’s got them penciled in as a 10 seed.

Cal comes into the game against Arizona leading the conference by a slim half-game margin over Arizona State.  They’re 10-5 in conference play and 18-9 overall.  Other than that, their tournament resume includes no signature wins.  They’ve been easily handled by the two really good teams they played this year, against Syracuse and at Kansas.  They have another “good loss” (if there is such a thing) at New Mexico.

Their best player is Jerome Randle, a senior guard out of Chicago.  He’s averaging almost 20 points per game, and shooting 40% from behind the arc.

I’ll definitely have this one on the DVR to check out later.
