With a week to go in the regular season, Pac-12 men's basketball teams are still fighting for position leading into the conference tournament.

Arizona has the top spot locked up, while Washington State and USC will play for last place on Thursday night. The rest of it is a jumbled mess, and probably will be until Saturday's games are over.

So, heading into the final week, here are my Pac-12 rankings:

1. Arizona (27-2, 14-2 Pac-12; Last week: 1): Wildcats have clinched the Pac-12 regular season title after two convincing wins against Stanford and Cal last week

2. Utah (19-9, 8-8; Last week: 3): Almost all of Utah's wins have come at home, including last week's whipping of Colorado, but they compete well on the road, too. Utes will be a tough out in the Pac-12 Tournament.

3. UCLA (22-7, 11-5; Last week: 4): Bruins would have been 2-0 last week had Jordan Adams and Kyle Anderson not been suspended for the Oregon game. At full strength, this is a really good basketball team - and easily the second-best in the conference.

4. Oregon (21-8, 9-8; Last week: 8): OK, now maybe it's time to get back on the Ducks' bandwagon. Even though UCLA was undermanned, that was still a good win at Pauley Pavilion. To follow that up with wins over USC and Arizona State was impressive. Oregon has won six in a row and seven of nine, with the only losses being a pair of two-point defeats on the Arizona trip.

Arizona State (21-8, 10-6; Last week: 7): Impressive set of wins for the Sun Devils last week as they defeated Stanford and Cal at home by a combined 30 points. Losing at Oregon knocks them down a bit, though.

6. Stanford (18-10, 9-7; Last week: 2): The Cardinal were on a nice roll until going 0-2 in Arizona. This is still a pretty solid team, though.

7. Colorado (20-9, 9-7; Last week 6): Two big losses in a row have knocked the Buffs down. They've still got a shot at getting into the top four and earning a first-round bye for the conference tourney, though.

8. California (18-11, 9-7; Last week: 5): In the last four games, the Bears are 1-3 with the only win being at home against last-place USC. In the other three, they lost by 20, 28 and 18 points.

9. Washington (16-13, 8-8; Last week: 9): Huskies have won two in a row, but they've come against Oregon State and Washington State.

10. Oregon State (15-13, 7-9; Last week: 10): The Beavers split on the LA trip, but who doesn't these days?

11. Washington State (9-19, 2-14; Last week: 11): The top four teams in the conference get a bye, but the way Washington State and USC are playing, half the conference might feel like the first round is a day off.

12. Southern Cal (10-19, 1-15; Last week: 12): The Trojans have lost 10 in a row, the last four by double digits.
