No other Big Six conference was hit as hard by departures quite like the Pac-12. Gone are six the top seven scorers. Nine of the top 10 rebounders are out of here, too. All five of the leading shot-blockers from last season won’t be back and half of the top 10 assist leaders are out of here.

Washington lost its emotional leader in Isaiah Thomas. Nikola Vucevic, the heart and soul of USC, is gone. UCLA was hit hard by the departures of Malcolm Lee and Tyler Honeycutt. Colorado will enter the Pac-12 without its best player as Alec Burk is going pro and signing an agent.

So, Pac-12, where do we go from here? Continue reading
