Not that this is going to assuage fans of our No. 12 team here, but the difference between the 12th coaching tandem in the Pac-12 and the fourth is razor thin.

Andrew Wiggins had his time in the spotlight. Jabari Parker had his. So did Julius Randle. Noah Vonleh turned the big four freshmen into a big five for a bit, and he may again.
