With the Pacific men’s basketball program not eligible to compete in this year’s WCC tournament after the school self-imposed a postseason ban as a result of an ongoing NCAA investigation, the conference had to make a quick revision to its bracket for the event.
Friday the WCC released the updated bracket, with the first round scheduled for Friday, March 4 now consisting of just one game. The eight and nine-seeds will play that night, with the winner advancing to take on the top seed in Saturday’s quarterfinal round. All four quarterfinals will be played Saturday, March 5, with the semifinals scheduled for Monday, March 7 and the title game Tuesday, March 8.
All games will be played at the Orleans Arena in Las Vegas, which has hosted the men’s and women’s basketball tournaments every year since 2009.
