Oregon comes to town this week with something to prove. The Ducks have been through a tumultuous season.

Earlier this season, guard Dominic Artis and forward Ben Carter were suspended nine games for selling team apparel that had been provided by the university. Oregon started the season 12-0 and was ranked 10 th   at the start of Pac-12 play.

Arizona's coronation may have been premature. Oregon's demise may have been exaggerated. And UCLA is . . . well, UCLA. People still aren't quite sure. The jury is also out on California and Arizona State, who lurk just off the pace in the standings. The Pac-12 Conference basketball regular season has three weeks left and a few things have changed since the start of league play in early January. Back then, Arizona was ranked No. 1 in the Associated Press media poll, Oregon was No. 10 and Colorado No. 20. Heading into this week's games, Arizona still sits at No. 4 - but has issues.

He scored 15 points to fuel a 20-8 run that gave UCLA (13-3 overall, 2-1 in Pac-12 play)
