Utah will have to fill the void left by leading scorer Jarred DuBois, but just yesterday the Utes signed three players who will hopefully help get the team back on track and competing at a high level.

With a few exceptions, most of the teams in the Pac-12 look like they could give the favorites a real challenge.  And with plenty of new coaches, hot seats, incoming freshman, and veteran teams, more story lines are sure to develop in the Pac-12.
