Pac-10 Final Standings and Tourney Seeding

UCLA won the Pac-10 regular season championship this week, and earned the #1 seed in the Pac-10 Tournament that starts this Wednesday at the Staples Center. The Bruins have the #1 overall seed in the NCAA tournament on the line...

UCLA won the regular season conference championshp when it beat Washington State in Pullman Thursday.

With the loss in the regular season finale against Washington on Saturday, however, UCLA is still playing to secure the #1 overall seed in the NCAA tournament. If UCLA wins the Pac-10 tournament this week, it would have a very good case for the #1 overall NCAA seed, being #1 in the RPI. And as we've said before, if UCLA wants to return to the Final Four, it's substantially easier to do so if it gets the #1 overall seed. That could mean the difference between playing the #8 overall seed and the #5 in the Elite Eight game. That could be a difference between, say, playing Mephis or North Carolina.

So, the Pac-10 tournament takes on a huge amount of important for the Bruins.
