Checking in on the Pac-12

Oregon State won the battle of the Civil War with Oregon, taking the win yesterday, 67-60.

UCLA was a double winner, beating Utah Thursday and using an overtime today to overcome Colorado.

USC lost to both mountain schools, which means they have three consecutive losses. Trojan forward Briana Gilbreath was injured in Thursdays game and didn’t play yesterday, missing the first game of her career. Her knee will be evaluated tomorrow.

Here are the current standings:

I’m taking votes: who is this year’s most improved player?

Rebekah Gardner of UCLA?

Regina Rogers of Washington?

Amanda Johnson of Oregon?

Gennifer Brandon of Cal?

Someone else?

Express yourself.


  1. I'm voting for Brandon. Had to sit out a year due to stress reaction in her leg. Has come back stronger than ever. Can't wait to see her progress.

  2. I am voting for Gardner because she is carrying the Bruins this season. She is averaging 15 point,
    7 rebounds, 2 assists and 2 steals per game and she is playing the most minutes. UCLA's season went in the toilet early this season with all the injuries, but Gardner is helping them to actually get some wins. Tho sitting in 4th UCLA beat 2 of the teams sitting ahead of them (CAL & ASU).

    Flipping the page, I hope Gilbreath is ok. I hate to see a kid get hurt and hope the injury is not too serious.
