SAN FRANCISCO - For the first time since 1999 and 2000, OREGON wins back-to-back Pac-12 women’s basketball regular-season titles and, for the second-straight year, claims the top seed at the Pac-12 Women’s Basketball Tournament presented by New York Life at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, March 7-10. STANFORD, OREGON STATE and UCLA claimed a top-four seed, as well, and a first-round bye. Tickets for the Conference’s premier women’s event are still available at

The sixth-ranked Ducks went 13-0 before suffering its first loss of the season, ending the campaign with a league-best 16-2 mark, also tying a program record set last season for most league wins. It is only the third time UO has earned a top-four seed in the Pac-12 Tournament, which began in 2002, earning the No. 2 seed in 2005 and last season’s first-ever top seeding.

The 12-team tournament tips off with fifth-seeded ARIZONA STATE (10-7) facing 12th-seeded COLORADO (2-16) in the first round. It marks the sixth-consecutive season ASU has finished in the top half of the Pac-12 standings. Eighth-seeded ARIZONA (7-11) takes on ninth-seeded USC (7-11) in the second game of the day. It is the Wildcats’ best seeding since 2010 and better than the 10th seed they were projected to claim in the Pac-12 preseason coaches poll. The seven conference wins is also the most for UA since 2010-11. Trojans swept the final weekend, including an overtime victory over UTAH in the final game of the season.

In the third game of the day, CALIFORNIA is the No. 7 seed taking on 10th-seeded WASHINGTON STATE (4-14) in a rematch of the last game of the season. Winners of their last four, the Golden Bears end the campaign 9-9 tied for sixth but tie-breaker scenarios gives them the seventh seed. They won at least nine games for the second-straight year and for the sixth time in eight years. WSU is under the direction of first-year head coach Kamie Ethridge.

Closing out day one is sixth-seeded UTAH (9-9) versus 11th-seeded WASHINGTON (2-15), which finishes a spot better than 2017-18. The Utes were picked to finish eighth in the preseason by the league’s coaches and set a program record for most Pac-12 wins since joining the league in 2011-12.

The quarterfinals begins on Friday with the winner of the ASU/Colorado matchup up facing fourth-seeded UCLA, which compiled a 12-6 league mark after starting league play 2-4. The Bruins also bested their preseason projection of sixth place. The defending champion Ducks take on the winner of the UA/USC first-round matchup in the second game of day two.

The Cardinal are the No. 2 seed with a 15-3 Pac-12 record, earning a top-four seed every year of the event. Stanford takes on the winner of CAL/WSU. Third-seeded Oregon State (14-4) closes out day two against the winner of Utah/UW. The Beavers have not finished lower than third in the standings since 2013.
