14. Arizona

UCLA isn't the only team that's expected to contend for the Pac-12 title by relying on a group of talented freshmen. And with all of the uncertainty in Westwood right now, it's not unreasonable to elevate Arizona to a slot as the favorite to win the Pac-12. Sean Miller's 2012-13 squad has all of the elements of a contender. The Wildcats are stacked in the frontcourt -- nationally ranked recruits Grant Jerrett, Brandon Ashley and Kaleb Tarczewski join returning forwards Solomon Hill and Angelo Chol. Xavier transfer Mark Lyons gives Zona a proven veteran at point guard. On paper, there's far more to like than dislike about the Cats. They have depth inside. They're experienced on the perimeter. And their young talents are as capable of any freshmen in America. -- Myron Medcalf
