Championship Competition for #Pac12WBB
In a first for the Conference, Pac-12 women's basketball is coming off a season in which its top two regular-season finishers – STANFORD and ARIZONA – met for the national championship. The 2021 title game was just the seventh time in NCAA women’s basketball history that two teams from the same league met for a championship and was the first to feature two schools from west of the Mississippi River since 1986 (Texas vs. USC).
Since 2016, the Pac-12 leads all conferences in Final Four appearances (6), NCAA Tournament wins (70), NCAA Tournament winning percentage (.707) and WBCA All-Americans (13). In the first year using the NCAA Evaluation Tool (NET) for women’s basketball, four of the top 10 teams in the final NET rankings for 2021 were from the Pac-12 in national champion STANFORD (No. 1), national runner-up ARIZONA (No. 7), UCLA (No. 8) and OREGON (No. 10), a total that is double that of any other league. The Pac-12 was also the nation’s top-rated conference by RPI in three of the final five seasons (2016, 2017, 2020) that metric was used by the Division I Women’s Basketball Committee.
This season is the second that the tournament will be at the home of the WNBA’s Las Vegas Aces, but first with fans, as the event is set to provide a dynamic atmosphere like never before. In its first three years in Las Vegas, the women’s tournament has seen tremendous success and with the move to Michelob ULTRA Arena at Mandalay Bay Events Center, the event will provide new and engaging experiences for fans in addition to new options for seating, from courtside through the arena, along with a showcase of the Pac-12’s elite competition over 11 games for an automatic bid into the NCAA Tournament.
Men's March Madness Momentum
Pac-12 men's basketball is coming off of one its most exciting seasons, with a record five teams concluding the 2020-21 campaign in the USA TODAY Sports/NABC Coaches Poll - No. 7 UCLA, No. 9 USC, No. 17 Oregon, No. 20 Oregon State and No. 23 Colorado. The five ranked teams were the most ever for the Conference in an NCAA-recognized final national poll (AP 1949-present, pre-NCAA Tournament poll; USA Today Coaches 1994-present, post-NCAA Tournament poll).
Each of the five ranked Pac-12 programs won games in the 2021 NCAA Tournament, with four winning multiple games en route to a league-record tying and national-best 13 combined victories and the best overall mark of any league in the event (13-5, .722), including UCLA which reached the Final Four, its first trip since 2008 and the first for the Pac-12 since Oregon in 2017. Across the full 2020-21 season last year, the Pac-12 led all leagues with five 20-win teams and finished third in the final KenPom.com Conference Rankings, its highest performance since leading all leagues in both 2008 and 2009.
The 11-game showcase will again take place in the electrifying environment of T-Mobile Arena, home of the NHL’s Vegas Golden Knights and numerous top entertainment acts for MGM Resorts International. From March 9-12, 2022 in Las Vegas, all 12 programs will compete for a chance to punch their ticket to the Big Dance.
The Pac-12 Conference is continuing its relationship with Force 10 Sports Management for the 2022 Women's Basketball Tournament and now the 2022 Men's Basketball Tournament, as well.
