Pac-12 coaches vote Oregon as preseason favorite to win the 2019-20 regular-season title
For the third-straight year, Pac-12 head coaches picked Oregon as the preseason favorite to win the conference’s regular-season title. The two-time defending regular-season champion earned maximum number of first-place votes (11) and collected 121 points. Stanford, the defending Pac-12 tournament champion received the last-remaining first-place vote and selected to finish second with 111 points.
Wade Trophy and Wooden Award winner, senior Sabrina Ionescu, returns for Oregon and leads a squad that returns four starters from last season’s team that won 33 games for the second-straight year. The Ducks are coming off of their first-ever trip to the Final Four. Stanford also has four starters back and Hall of Fame coach Tara VanDerveer adds four newcomers to the mix that.
Coaches are not allowed to vote for their own teams (first-place votes in parentheses).
