Pac-12 Tournament 2017: Bracket & Schedule For Men’s Basketball

The 2017 Pac-12 Tournament will be one of the most interesting conference tournaments to watch, as they currently have three teams ranked in the top 10 in the country. #3 UCLA, #5 Oregon, and #7 Arizona are all capable of not only winning the Pac-12 Tournament, but also the whole ball of wax at the NCAA Tournament.

This year’s Pac-12 Tournament is set to run from Wednesday, March 8 through Saturday, March 11 at the T-Mobile Arena in Paradise, Nevada. Even though it’s a 12-team field, it seems to be a three-team race, with UCLA, Oregon, or Arizona being a virtual lock to win the tournament.

Oregon and Arizona finished tied for first in the Pac-12 with regular season records of 16-2 in conference play. But because the Ducks beat the Wildcats in their lone meeting this year, Oregon was awarded the #1 seed in the Pac-12 Tournament. UCLA was given the #3 seed, as they finished in third place in the regular season with a 15-3 record in conference play.

Oregon won the Pac-12 Tournament last year, and if they can repeat as champions, they would be pretty much guaranteed a #1 seed in the NCAA Tournament. Now that we know a little bit about what to expect in these games, let’s breakdown the bracket and schedule for the 2017 Pac-12 Tournament.
