Eleven of the 12 seeds for the 2020 Pac-12 Men’s Basketball Tournament presented by New York Life were determined on Saturday, the final day of the Pac-12 regular season.

The bracket is now set with the Pac-12 regular-season outright champion Oregon Ducks (24-7, 13-5) seeking to defend their 2019 tournament title as the event's No. 1 seed.

Colorado's hopes for a first-round bye in the Pac-12 tournament were crushed in the final seconds on Saturday when Utah stole a 74-72 overtime victory at the Huntsman Center.

Colorado thus finished in a tie for fifth in the final Pac-12 standings with Arizona, but lost the tiebreaker with the Wildcats and dropped to the sixth seed in next week's Pac-12 tournament at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

The Buffs will open play Wednesday against No. 11 seed Washington State (15-16, 6-12) in a 9:30 p.m. (MT) game. If they win their opener, they will face No. 3 seed Arizona State on Thursday.
