    WALNUT CREEK, CALIF. -- CALIFORNIA captured its first Pac-10 regular season championship since 1960, and 15th league title overall. The Golden Bears have earned the No 1 seed for the Pacific Life Pac-10 Tournament which begins next week (Wed., March 10 - Sat., March 13) at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

    ARIZONA STATE, which reached the Pac-10 Tournament championship game last year, will be the Pac-10's No. 2 seed in the Tournament. WASHINGTON holds the No. 3 seed, while ARIZONA will be seeded at No. 4.

    USC, OREGON STATE and UCLA tied for fifth, with the Bruins grabbing the No. 5 seed as they hold the tie-breaker. Oregon State will be the No. 6 seed. 

    USC will not participate in this year's Pacific Life Pac-10 Tournament. Earlier this season, USC announced self-imposed sanctions on the basketball program that included a one-year ban on postseason. However, the Trojans remained eligible to compete for the regular season title and their league record would be used in any tie-breaking scenarios to determine the seeds for the Pac-10 Tournament. 

    STANFORD and OREGON tied for eighth, with the Cardinal taking the tie-breaker and sliding up to claim the No. 7 seed. 

    The Tournament will officially get underway Wednesday, March 10 with No. 8 Oregon vs. No. 9 WASHINGTON STATE at 8:00 p.m. PT.
