The 2010 Pacific Life Pacific-10 Conference Men's Basketball Tournament was played with the first round on March 10, 2010 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California, with quarterfinals on March 11, semifinals on March 12, and the finals on March 13 (3:00 p.m. PT).[1] Washington, the tournament champion, became the NCAA Tournament automatic qualifier from the conference.

Seeds[edit]

All Pacific 10 schools except USC played in the tournament.[2] USC was banned from post season play as a result of self-imposed sanctions for illegal benefits received during the 2007–2008 season. Teams were seeded by conference record, with a tiebreaker system used to seed teams with identical conference records.
