The Washington Huskies and the Oregon St. Beavers get to battle it out for a right to advance to the semifinals. Washington did best Oregon State in their two head-to-head meetings, but the matchup in Corvallis came down to the final seconds. Washington will be looking for a strong performance to try and take advantage of the fatigued Beavers. Whoever wins the Oregon State-Washington contest will be in a semifinal matchup with the Arizona-UCLA winner.
The Oregon Ducks are located at the opposite side of the spectrum as the three seed, where they figure to play one of the toughest semifinal contests against the Colorado Buffaloes. If Oregon wins that, they have a short turnaround before matching up with the Cal-Stanford winner the next night. But the Pacific Northwest stands a good chance of having two teams in the Pac-12 Tournament semifinals.
