Day Two at Pac-12 Tourney: UW vs. Oregon

Thursday in Las Vegas is moving day.

Four teams are going home. Four teams make their Pac-12 Tournament debut. And four teams must make the difficult transition of putting Wednesday’s emotional wins behind them and focusing on today’s game.

Here’s a look at what lies ahead.

TODAY’S PAC-12 TOURNAMENT SCHEDULE:

No. 1 UCLA (23-8) vs. No. 9 Arizona State (21-11), 12 p.m. (Pac-12 Networks) — The pressure is on top seed UCLA and coach Ben Howland, whose job may not be secure despite winning the Pac-12 title. Seems crazy, but his critics won’t be silenced.

No. 4 Arizona (24-6) vs. No. 5 Colorado (21-10), 2:30 p.m. (Pac-12 Networks) — This is a rematch of last year’s Pac-12 Tournament final. These teams have had some good games this season, including a controversial Arizona win. Today is the rubber match between Colorado, the defending tourney champion, and Arizona, the preseason Pac-12 favorites. The Wildcats see an equal in the Buffaloes.

No. 2 California (20-10) vs. No. 10 Utah (14-17) , 6 p.m., (Pac-12 Networks) — Cal swept the regular-season series by a combined 28 points. Junior point guard Justin Cobbs told the San Francisco Chronicle: “Anybody is capable of beating anybody. If (the top) teams take care of business, one of these teams will end up with the championship, and hopefully that’s us.”

No. 3 Oregon (23-8) vs. No. 6 Washington (18-14), 8:30 p.m. (ESPNU) — The Ducks arrived to Las Vegas on Tuesday and they’ve spent 48 hours in Sin City preparing for tonight’s game.
