Pac-12: Arizona No. 1 in basketball rankings

College basketball's offseason has just begun, and Arizona is the team to beat in 2015.

The Wildcats received the No. 1 ranking in Sporting News' early look at next season, just ahead of Kentucky. The publication acknowledges that freshman forward Aaron Gordon likely is headed to the NBA and may be joined by early entrants Nick Johnson and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson. Brandon Ashley and Kaleb Tarczewski also face decisions. "Regardless, there will be oodles of talent in Tucson next fall," Sporting News declares, led by forward Stanley Johnson.

The Pac-12's talent level will drop off considerably, after the Wildcats. The conference's only other schools in the top 25 are No. 18 Colorado and No. 25 Oregon.
