Pac-12 Conference History:
The modern Pac-12 Men’s Basketball Tournament has run annually since 2002. All 12 teams are seeded according to their regular season schedules. The top four teams get byes into the quarterfinals while the remaining 8 teams are whittled down to four in the first round.
Of course, the Pac-12 tournament winner advances to the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament. Even though the modern Pac-12 is relatively new, the conference was actually established in 1915. Since then, the conference is tied with the ACC for the most NCAA tournament championships with 15. UCLA boasts the most NCAA tournament wins of any team with 11.
It’s been a tough millennium for the Pac-12 as no team from the conference has won an NCAA championship since Arizona edged Kentucky in 1997’s championship game. UCLA is the last Pac-12 team to appear in a championship game. They were soundly defeated by Florida in 2006.
The bookmakers have UCLA and Arizona State as the favorites to win the 2021 Pac-12 tournament. However, both squads are long shots to win the NCAA tournament. As a point of interest, Washington State is the only Pac-12 school to never play in a Pac-12 championship game.
Looking at their current odds, it would seem safe to assume that the Cougars won’t make it there in 2021. Arizona has appeared in and won three of the last five Pac-12 tournaments. Oregon has played in four Pac-12 championship games since 2015. They lost to Arizona in 2015, beat Utah in 2016, lost to Arizona again in 2017, and then defeated Washington in 2019.
