No. 24 nationally ranked Stanford (9-4, 6-1) clinched the Pac-12 regular-season championship title on Sunday with a 7-0 defeat over Washington, marking the Cardinal's first Conference championship title since 2015 and its first outright title since 2003.
No. 21 nationally ranked ARIZONA (18-6, 5-2) claimed the No. 2 seed by virtue of its 4-3 victory over USC (17-6, 5-2) on March 26, placing the No. 15 ranked Trojans into the No. 3 seed. No. 33 UCLA (11-5, 4-3) rounds out the top four of the men’s eight-team bracket.
