Sunday evening saw the Pac-12 close out its COVID-impacted regular season, which means the bracket for the Pac-12 tournament later this week is now set.

The University of Oregon cliched the league’s regular-season crown outright Sunday night thanks to an 80-67 win at Oregon State. The league title is Oregon’s fourth in the last six seasons, and second outright in as many seasons.

The regular-season title gives the Ducks (19-5, 14-4 Pac-12) the No. 1 seed for the Pac-12 tournament, which begins Wednesday afternoon at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Oregon, USC, Colorado, UCLA and Oregon State all have byes through to Wednesday’s quarterfinals of the 11-team event.

Only 11 teams will compete in the Pac-12 tournament this season due to Arizona self-imposing a one-year postseason ban.

The University of Utah secured the No. 7 seed on Saturday with a 39-point rout of Arizona State at the Huntsman Center. The Utes will face No. 10 seed Washington on Wednesday (5 p.m., Pac-12 Networks). The Utes and Huskies split their two regular-season meetings, with the home team winning each time.

Should Utah (11-12, 8-11 Pac-12) win on Wednesday, the Utes would draw No. 2 seed USC in a Thursday quarterfinal. The Utes and Trojans split their regular-season meetings.
