Media picks UW for men's basketball title

Here's the vote, revealed this morning at Pac-10 Media Day.

The 2010-11 Pac-10 Men's Basketball Media Poll1. Washington (33), 3482. Arizona (1), 2963. UCLA (1), 2814. Arizona State, 2155. Washington State, 1916. USC, 1787. California, 1518. Oregon State, 1209. Stanford, 9810. Oregon, 47

Next up, all 10 league coaches and selected players will address the media. The event will be shown (off and on, apparently) on ESPNU from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
