A look around the college basketball landscape reveals six conferences -- Big Ten, Big 12, Big East, SEC, ACC, American -- that are expected to put more teams in the NCAA Tournament than the Pac-12.
As of Wednesday, No. 5 Arizona, No. 13 Utah and Oregon were projected by ESPN bracketologist Joe Lunardi to make The Big Dance. That number, which puts the conference in a tie with the Mountain West, could go up or down as the regular season wraps up this week before the Pac-12 tournament runs March 11-14 in Las Vegas.
