Who earns the byes?

1. Oregon Ducks. Oregon has to feel pretty confident. They have the easiest road to the final and avoid a big matchup until Saturday.

2. Arizona Wildcats. Arizona has the chance to beat the other top three teams in the conference.

3. UCLA Bruins. An Arizona-UCLA looms on Friday night as potentially another Pac-12 classic.

4. Utah Utes. Utah finished the season right way. Now they are that much closer to a Pac-12 title.

First round (Wednesday)

5. California Golden Bears vs. 12 Oregon State Beavers: Cal needs three wins to get into the NCAA tournament in all likelihood.

6. USC Trojans vs. 11. Washington Huskies: USC just needs to hold serve and they’re in the Dance. Win this one and they’re in.

7. Colorado Buffaloes vs. 10 Washington State Cougars: Colorado gave Arizona trouble in the season, so this could be a sneaky matchup.

8. Arizona State Sun Devils vs. 9. Stanford Cardinal: Who earns the right to get dismembered by Oregon?

Quarterfinals (Thursday)

Oregon vs. ASU/Stanford winner

Arizona vs. Colorado/Washington State winner

Semifinals (Friday night)
