The Arizona Wildcats are the No. 1 seed in the final Pac-12 Tournament to be played this upcoming week in Las Vegas, awaiting the winner of the No. 8-seed Washington Huskies and No. 9-seed USC Trojans in the quarterfinals.

Arizona State will be a No. 11 seed after falling to UCLA on Saturday night, setting up a matchup with No. 6-seed Utah on Wednesday.

The Wildcats are the reigning Pac-12 Tournament champions but are coming off a loss at USC to close the regular season. They won their previous four games and entered Saturday as the No. 5 team in the nation bidding for a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament.

ASU is on a three-game skid but won its two games against Utah this season. The Sun Devils won’t have starting guard Jose Perez, however, as he left the team due to personal reasons.
