Tournament Notes[edit]

  • Arizona's 31-point victory margin (90-59) over Oregon State in the 2nd round was the lasrgest for any game in this tournament's history. It has since been broken, but still remains the second largest margin.
  • Arizona also had an average margin of victory of over 21 pts. per game, one of the largest in Pac-10 Tournament history.
  • This is the first and time only time in Pac-12 Tournament history that the 2 seed beat the 1 seed (as of 2013 these seeds have met 5 times).
  • Like the previous two years, no universities met their arch-rival in this year's tournament.
  • Three universities each had two players on the all-tournament team, which is the only time this has happened.
  • There were no blocked shots in the game between Washington and Arizona, although this has happened in other tournaments.
