You knew Arizona, Oregon and Utah were going to represent the Pac-12 in the NCAA tournament.
But UCLA, considered by many pundits to be on the wrong side of the bubble, also wound up sneaking into the field as an 11 seed. So the Pac-12 wound up a four-bid league, after all.
Below are the pairings, locations and game times for the Pac-12 teams playing in the tournament, as well as a few other games of local interest. And here is the all-important printable tournament bracket from ESPN.
--- Arizona earned a No. 2 seed in Portland, and will face 15th-seed Texas Southern (11:10 a.m. Thursday) in the second round (first round, really).
Never miss a local story.
