Pac-12 Tournament tickets on sale now and other basketball notes

The Pac-12 didn’t let Wednesday’s apropos number sequence escape them. The 12-team conference is offering two general admission tickets for one session of the four-day tourney for $12. The 12-12-12 special holiday offer is only available on pac-12.com/tickets between 10am and 10pm (PST) on December 12.

In addition to the deal, all-session strips for the tournament are on sale to the general public starting at $50.

The tournament is scheduled for March 7-10 at KeyArena – a first in the conference’s 12-year history. The Storm ownership group’s side venture, Force 10 Sports Management, is a joint partner in marketing and ticket sales.

KeyArena will have the same upper-deck black curtains as with WNBA games, making capacity 9,686. But, as with Storm games, there’s the option to expand if needed.

The championship game between Stanford and California last year at Staples Center drew 1,845 and the total attendance was 7,720 for combined games at USC’s Galen Center and Staples. The declining attendance numbers since San Jose, Calif. held the four-day tournament, attracting a combined 19,004 fans in 2008, prompted a move to an area more supportive of women’s basketball.

Below is a look at the tournament’s promo video.

RANK ‘EM: The polls were published earlier this week. I was on vacation, but submitted my picks while on honeymoon anyway.

TV ALERT: No. 1 Stanford (8-0) and Colorado (8-0) remain two of the undefeated teams in the nation and the Pac-12 conference continues to have three teams nationally ranked since November 2007. So, things are looking good headed into conference play this month. Washington (6-1) is in the midst of finals week, but here are some other big games around the Pac-12.

No. Louisville (9-1) visits Colorado (8-0) at 6pm (PST) on the Pac-12′s  Live Stream on Friday.

Nationally, No. 13 Tennessee plays at Baylor at 11am (PST) on Sunday on FSN.
