• The final regular-season weekend is here and the postseason picture is still unclear. No seeds have been decided with two games left (per team). However, No. 8/6 STANFORD, No. 10/8 OREGON STATE, No. 11/12 WASHINGTON and No. 15/15 UCLA have locked up a first-round bye at the Pac-12 Tournament in Seattle. With so much still up in the air, the Pac-12 regular-season champion may not be crowned until the final game of the season on Sunday.

• The top-two teams in the Pac-12 square off on Friday with the league title on the line. The Cardinal travels to meet OSU for a national top-10 clash on Pac-12 Network. The two teams are tied for first in the standings and whichever team wins on Friday is in control of its own fate.

• The Bruins are the only team in the Conference that is not locked up in a tie, but can move up to force a tie-breaker situation with the Huskies. UCLA travels to ARIZONA and No. 23 ARIZONA STATE, where the Sun Devils are trying to break out of a tie with OREGON. The Wildcats are also trying to gain an edge in the standings where they currently sit tied with UTAH.

• The last set of ties include four teams that could finish anywhere from No. 7-10. Those teams include CALIFORNIA, COLORADO, USC and WASHINGTON STATE.

• UW’s Kelsey Plum now has her sights squarely on Jackie Stiles, the NCAA’s all-time leading scorer, after moving to second place all-time on the career list. She moved passed Baylor’s Brittney Griner and needs just 78 points to tie the all-time record.

• Four Pac-12 teams were in the NCAA Women’s Basketball Committee’s latest top-16 reveal, which was announced on Monday night. OSU was the highest seeded at No. 8, Stanford was No. 10, Washington was No. 12 and UCLA was No. 13. The official NCAA Tournament bracket announcement is March 13.

• UCLA’s Monique Billings was voted Pac-12 Player of the Week and USC’s Minyon Moore was tabbed the Pac-12 Freshman of the Week, as well as the USBWA National Freshman of the Week.
