The Seattle Times — NBA’s mass rejection of Pac-12 basketball comes full circle in Thursday’s draft

Jon Wilner points out that the Pac-12 was skunked among last week’s NBA Draft lottery, and writes that the conference’s nightmare in the sport of men’s basketball just continues:

The trajectory cannot continue indefinitely, but will change come swiftly or slowly?

Answers could come this summer, when the NCAA is expected to distribute the first wave of allegations against programs involved in the FBI scandal.

Arizona and USC will have two of the most-talented rosters in the conference next season.

They’re also prime targets for NCAA sanctions.

There’s a chance, it seems, that things could get worse before they get better.
