2021 Pac-12 Tournament bracket: Schedule, scores, dates, location, updates, live stream for March ...

When Oregon lost to Washington State on Feb. 4 and fell to 4-3 in conference play, it looked like its chances of repeating as the Pac-12 regular season champion might be fading. But the Ducks completed a strong comeback on Sunday night by beating rival Oregon State 80-67 to win the league title and enter the upcoming Pac-12 Tournament as the No. 1 seed. 

Sunday's victory was Oregon's 10th in its last 11 games, making it a worthy champion for a conference with a power balance concentrated at the top. No. 2 seed USC, No. 3 seed Colorado and No. 4 seed UCLA are the conference's only other projected NCAA Tournament teams along with Oregon, and all four could use a strong run in the league tournament to bolster their projected seedings for the Big Dance.

UCLA, in particular, might want to win a game or two in order to bolster its NCAA Tournament resume. As of Sunday, the Bruins (17-8, 13-6 Pac-12) were projected as a No. 11 seed and still on the bubble in Jerry Palm's Bracketology. A couple of wins in the Pac-12 Tournament would go a long way toward relieving any uncertainty still facing UCLA as Selection Sunday approaches.
