The Pacific 12 Men's Basketball Championship dates all the way back to 1923, when the league was known as the Pacific Coast Conference. Instead of a full-fledged tournament, the league's top two finishers faced off for a bid to compete for the national title. This format was scrapped in 1955, and the conference followed the lead of other successful leagues that determined their NCAA Tournament representative based on their regular-season record. In 1987, the Pac-10 (as it was known until 2012 when the league expanded to 12 teams) finally gave into pressure from fans and many of their own athletic programs to begin a tournament to determine the conference winner and the automatic bid into the NCAA Tournament.
The Pac-12 announced in 2016 that they would be moving the postseason tournament from MGM Grand Arena to T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, for the 2017 season and beyond. The change of scenery will put additional fans in the seats the new venue and a bit of extra energy into one of the biggest tournaments on the NCAA calendar.

2018 Pac-12 Basketball Tournament Preview
The 2018 Pac-12 Basketball Tournament is set to occur at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada from March 7-10. The Pac-12 is led by last year's conference tournament champion, Arizona, who will likely be the favorite to bring home the title, with star DeAndre Ayton leading the way. Southern California, Stanford, Arizona State and Washington appear to be the biggest challengers to the Wildcats. While Arizona looks to be the major hurdle to bring home the crown, the Pac-12 Tournament is known for its unpredictability.
Pac-12 Basketball Tournament at T-Mobile Arena Address: 3780 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, Nevada, 89158
The Pac-12 Men’s Basketball Tournament is held at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. It pits every team in the Pac-12 against each other in a bracket-style tournament, with the winner getting an automatic bid into the NCAA Tournament. Teams are seeded from 1 to 12, with the top four seeds getting first-round byes.
There are six courtside sections along the sidelines, each lettered either A, B, C, D, E or F. These are the best seats in the house.
Sections 5, 6, 15 and 16 are on the sidelines and offer great views of the court from one of the best vantage points in the T-Mobile Arena. Sections 1-4, 7-14 and 17-20 are down near the floor behind the baskets and are usually cheaper than those on the sidelines.

Pac-12 Basketball Tournament Event Guide
What is the best time to buy tickets for the Pac-12 Tournament?
If you’re just going as a spectator and not a fan of any specific team, buy as early as possible. If you want to see your team, wait until you know what seed they are and then jump on tickets for that session!
Where should I stay if I want to be near to the T-Mobile Arena?
The venue is on the Las Vegas strip, so there are many options. New York-New York, Monte Carlo and Excalibur are the closest choices, while the MGM Grand, Mandarin Oriental and Tropicana Las Vegas are all in close proximity. If you’re looking for a cheap alternative, the Travelodge Ambassador Strip on Koval Lane is nearby.
Can I buy tickets for just the game that my team is playing in?
For this tournament, tickets are only sold as sessions and therefore you are buying a pass to two games (unless it’s the final).
What teams have won the Pac-12 Tournament over the years?
