INDIANAPOLIS, Ind.-- The 2009 Pac-10 Champion UCLA Bruins earned the No. 2 seed and the Conference automatic qualifying spot as the NCAA announced its field for first round regional action. The Pac-10 sends six teams into the postseason, with five teams earning one of 16 NCAA seeds: No. 2 UCLA, No. 3 Washington, No. 8 Stanford, No. 9 Arizona, No. 10 Arizona State and California.

Pac-10 begins competition on May 15 with Stanford, UCLA, and Arizona State hosting regionals at their home stadiums.
