USC loses but still locks up No. 3 seed at Pac-12 Tournament

The Pac-12 Tournament field is getting close to being finalized. With one more day left of regular season games, a few teams could shift places for seeding purposes.

With five Pac-12 games on Thursday, we received some clarity. USC lost to Arizona in Los Angeles, and that game cemented the No. 2 and No. 3 seeds.

The Wildcats locked up the second spot and USC is locked into the third spot for next week’s tournament in Las Vegas.

The UCLA Bruins, unsurprisingly, are the top seed, and Arizona State’s loss to UCLA on Thursday night allowed the Trojans to lose and still lock in the third spot.

This means that USC will kick off their Pac-12 Tournament on Thursday night against the 6-11 winner, and the 6-seed is still to be determined.

Nonetheless, there are plenty of concerns for Andy Enfield’s team despite a 50-point second half and a surprising fight with foul trouble against Arizona.

The Trojans finish the regular season slate with Arizona State on Saturday night. As of now, Arizona State and Oregon are tired at 11-8 for fourth place, and Washington State is at 11-9 with Utah at 10-9.
