Two of the four most-attended events in the Pac-12 Men’s Tournament’s 21-year history have occurred at T-Mobile Arena, eclipsing more than 80,000 fans each of the past two years highlighted by a record attendance mark of 86,910 in 2017.
The Pac-12 Women’s Tournament announced its move to Las Vegas last March following a successful six-year run in Seattle’s soon-to-be-renovated Key Arena, with the three highest-attended tourneys in event history coming in the past three years.
For the first time in league history, one school was tabbed the favorite in both preseason polls as the OREGON men’s and women’s programs were selected first in a vote by media and coaches, respectively.
Pac-12 Men’s Basketball equaled a league record with seven 20-win teams and eight postseason participants in 2017-18. Four All-Freshman Team selections, three All-Conference performers and a pair of All-Defensive team honorees from last season are slated to return to the league for 2018-19. Additionally, six NBA Draft early-entry candidates elected to return to Pac-12 programs, and the league boasts the second-most top 50 (10) and top 100 (19) commitments of any league.
Pac-12 Women’s Basketball is in the midst of its most successful run of seasons, boasting the most NCAA Tournament wins of any conference over the last three years (41) and the best winning percentage in the tournament among peer leagues (.695). The Pac-12 earned six NCAA Tournament bids in 2017-18, marking the fifth consecutive year at least five teams have received berths. Three teams made the NCAA Elite Eight last year, also marking the third-straight year at least four teams advanced to the round of 16.
