Pac 12 Tournament 2014 Season
Last year Oregon won its third Pac 12 Tournament
title, defeating #1 seeded UCLA (sans Jordan Adams) in the Championship game. The Ducks and Bruins faced off for the first time in 2014 last night in a close game at Matthew Knight Arena that ended with a blocked shot by Kyle Anderson that allowed UCLA to hold on and get the W. Arizona leads the Conference, and the Country for that matter, after eight Pac-12 Conference games. Will we see a UCLA-Arizona semi-final Pac 12 tournament rematch come March 15 in Vegas? Compared to other top basketball conferences, Pac-12 basketball tickets are a steal
. To see some of the best programs in the Country compete for a chance to play in the NCAA Tournament, you’ll pay as little as $77 to watch the semi-final rounds and $87 to cheer from the stands during the Championship game.
The 2013 Pac-12 Conference Men's Basketball Tournament will be played March 13th through the 16th at the MGM Grand Hotel Garden Arena in Las Vegas. It will be the first year (of a three year term) that MGM Grand will host the Pac-12 Tournament. The past 11 years, the Pac-12 Tournament has been held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles; this year, the Staples Center will host the NCAA West Regional Championship.
All 12 teams in the conference will play in the tournament; the top 4 teams earn a bye into the quarterfinals. The winner of the 2013 Pac-12 Conference Tournament receives an automatic bid to the 2013 NCAA Tournament. Pac-12 Tournament tickets are currently starting at $380 for All Sessions.
In 2011, the Pac-12 added two teams — the University of Colorado Boulder and the University of Utah. In their first year in the Conference, the 2011-2012 Colorado Buffaloes Men's Basketball Team won the 2012 Pac-12 Conference Men's Basketball Tournament and advanced to the 2012 NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament. The Oregon Ducks currently sit atop the 2013 Pac-12 standings, with the Arizona Wildcats and UCLA Bruins 2nd and 3rd. There are only three weeks left in the season, and all three teams have a shot at the #1 seed in the Pac-12 Tournament; Oregon won't have to play either of the two other schools down the stretch, while UCLA will host Arizona on March 2nd.
