2014 Pac-12 Tournament Predictions

How about this, another basketball tournament taking place in the Las Vegas area? For the second straight year, the Pacific-12 Tournament will occur at the MGM Grand in Paradise and it kicks off this Wednesday afternoon. I'll certainly be tuned in and I know you folks will as well as it should be a good one yet again.

These are my 2014 Pac-12 Tournament predictions.

First Round - March 12th
#9 Washington vs. #8 Utah - Pac-12 Network, 3:00
Pick: Utah

#12 USC vs. #5 Colorado - Pac-12 Network, 5:30
Pick: Colorado

#10 Oregon State vs. #7 Oregon - Pac-12 Network, 9:00
Pick: Oregon

#11 Washington State vs. #6 Stanford - Pac-12 Network, 11:30
Pick: Stanford

Quarterfinals - March 13th
#8 Utah vs. #1 Arizona - Pac-12 Network, 3:00
Pick: Arizona

#5 Colorado vs. #4 California - Pac-12 Network, 5:30
Pick: Colorado

#7 Oregon vs. #2 UCLA - Pac-12 Network, 9:00
With a pair of top five offenses going at it, this will be a wild show. But I think the Ducks have the momentum and will slide on by.
Pick: Oregon

#6 Stanford vs. #3 Arizona State - Fox Sports 1, 11:30
Pick: Arizona State

Semifinals - March 14th
#5 Colorado vs. #1 Arizona - Pac-12 Network, 9:00
If Spencer Dinwiddie was in this game, I actually would go with the Buffs, but I just can't see it now on a neutral court and with the Wildcats playing well. 
Pick: Arizona

#7 Oregon vs. #3 Arizona State - Fox Sports 1, 11:30
Again, I am loving what the Ducks are doing and I think they will continue on to the final.
Pick: Oregon

Championship - March 15th
#7 Oregon vs. #1 Arizona - Fox Sports 1, 6:00
I have twice noted how much I love how Oregon is playing, and they did just beat Arizona at home. However, I don't think they can do it once more on a neutral floor. 
Pick: Arizona
