LOS ANGELES - The Cal men's basketball team has been picked to finish sixth in the 1999-2000 Pacific-10 Conference race in a vote of 36 sportswriters who regular cover the league.

The poll, which was released at the annual Pac-10 media Thursday, lists Arizona as the overwhelming favorite, with the Wildcats garnering 32 first-place votes. UCLA was picked third, followed by Stanford, Oregon, Oregon State, Cal, USC, Arizona State, Washington and Washington State.

The poll has accurately predicted the conference champion each of the last five seasons.

Cal, which tied for fifth last year before winning the National Invitation Tournament title, returns just on starter -- junior forward Sean Lampley. With five freshmen and just two seniors, the Bears are certain to be one of the youngest teams in college basketball this season.
