2020 Pac-12 Tournament printable bracket, preview, predictions

The 2020 Pac-12 Tournament bracket is set after a wild, unpredictable season and you can expect more of the same when you fill out your printable bracket.

When the 2019-20 college basketball season tipped off, the Pac-12 was expected to be a free-for-all with several teams boasting the potential to emerge. And after four months of action with the 2020 Pac-12 Tournament now set, it was Payton Pritchard and the Oregon Ducks that secured the top spot, albeit not by much.

Make no mistake, Oregon has been the clear-cut best team in the conference since the start of the year, posting a 24-7 overall record and 13-5 mark in Pac-12 play. However, Mick Cronin, in his first season with the UCLA Bruins, gave the Ducks all they could handle as his team led by guard Chris Smith had a chance to win a share of the regular-season conference championship but lost to the rival USC Trojans in the finale.

Even still, not much is separating the Ducks as the No. 1 seed in the 2020 Pac-12 Tournament as UCLA is at No. 2 after trailing by just one game while USC and the Arizona State Sun Devils are the No. 3 and 4 seeds, respectively, and were just two games behind Oregon in the final regular-season standings.

The tightness in the Pac-12 race doesn’t stop there, either. The No. 5 Arizona Wildcats, spearheaded by Zeke Nnaji and Nico Mannion, along with the No. 6 seeded Colorado Buffaloes with McKinley Wright IV leading the charge are both teams capable of making a run now that March has arrived.

Though it was a close race, all that matters now is winning in the conference tournament, which tips off on Wednesday, March 11 from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The 2020 Pac-12 Tournament bracket is live here. For a printable bracket, click here.

While Oregon may be labeled as the favorites, if we’ve learned anything from this conference in the regular season, it’s that anything can happen on a given night. That should create quite a bit of excitement and drama for the Pac-12 Tournament in Las Vegas.
