Pac-10 Men's Tournament Predictions
This is one of my least confident picks that I have had all season. There are a litany of teams that could win it all, and Arizona's road is anything but easy. While it should easily roll over either Stanford or Oregon State on Thursday, the Wildcats will either be faced with the unenviable task of beating Cal a third time or knocking off USC, a team that beat them when the 'Cats last came to L.A. That plus if Arizona faces off with Cal, it should make for the best game of the tournament.

Pac-10 Women's Tournament Predictions
This one is an absolute no-brainer. The No. 2 Cardinal went 18-0 in conference play - for the second consecutive year. Stanford has not lost to another Pac-10 team in over two years, 26 months to be precise. And that streak won't be broken this week.
