Bilas: He is a Duke homer...but his thoughts on tourney chances:

(His thoughts about officials now allowing "manhandling" caught my attention. He says they now swallow the whistle and motion can be impeded)

Really. The PAC-12 is so far better than other conferences there is no point to discussion. Who did they lose to? Each other. None of the top ten teams in the final poll could go undefeated in PAC-12 conference play.

The Pac 12 went 112-39 or 74% in non conference (tied with three other conferences for 3rd place in that category).

No special mastery over non conference games. The ACC and Big Ten lost the same percentage OCC and, thus, they too have the argument of beating each other.

But...if it was NCAA tournament play...games won on the tournament courts last year and not computers...it would be the ACC....

This year? We'll never know.
