Avoid a technical foul by obtaining your Pac-12 Tournament tickets. Founded in 1959, the Pac-12 Conference currently has 12 university athletic departments divided into two divisions: the north and the south. The conference expanded into its modern-day form in 2011 with the addition of the University of Colorado and the University of Utah. The first recognized men's basketball tournament happened in 1987 at the member school’s home basketball arena. Less than three years later, that conference tournament was dropped due to low attendance and low revenue. When it was decided in 2002 that the Pac-12 would start to host a men's conference basketball tournament, they picked the Staples Center in Los Angeles to be the host venue. After low attendance during the 2011 tournament, it was announced that the college men’s basketball tournament would move to the MGM Grand Garden Center in Las Vegas.
When the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas opened in 2016, the tournament moved to its now permanent sports complex. Secure your Pac-12 Tournament tickets now.
