Pac-12 Teams in the 2023 NCAA Tournament Bracket

The March Madness bracket is available for you to make your picks! Now, you can take a look at which college basketball teams have a shot at winning a title this year. What about teams from out west in the Pac-12? How many Pac-12 teams are in the NCAA Tournament? Here’s what you need to know.

How Many Pac-12 Teams in the 2023 NCAA Tournament

The Pac-12 Conference will have just four teams in the 2023 NCAA Tournament bracket. Here’s a look at the NCAA Tournament bids for the Pac-12 Conference:

UCLA

Arizona

USC

Arizona State

UCLA won the regular season conference title but the Arizona Wildcats took down the Bruins in a thrilling Pac-12 Tournament title game. Teams like Oregon State, Washington State, and more in the conference fell short.

Many projections had the Pac-12 at three or four teams to make the tournament. Stanford and Cal each missed the tournament after a tough Pac-12 regular season.

Pac-12 Matchups for the 2023 NCAA Basketball Tournament

The big dance will provide for some exciting matchups. Arizona took the conference’s automatic bid and earned a number 2 seed after a strong season. UCLA just missed out on a number 1 seed and received a number 2 seed as well with its at-large bid. Here’s who the Pac-12 teams will be facing off against:

2) Arizona vs 15) Princeton

2) UCLA vs 15) UNC Asheville

10) USC vs 7) Michigan State

11) Arizona State vs 11) Nevada (First Four Game)

Eyes are looking at the 10-seed USC Trojans matchup with Michigan State. The Spartans were bounced in the first round of the Big Ten tournament by Ohio State.

If UCLA wants to make a Final Four, it might have to go through the defending champion Kansas Jayhawks from the Big 12. Kansas is the number 1 seed in the region. The dangerous Gonzaga Bulldogs are also in the same region as UCLA. If USC gets by Michigan State, they might have to face Big East champion Marquette in the second round.
