The 2011 Pacific Life Pacific-10 Conference Men's Basketball Tournament was played on March 9–11, 2011 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.[3] The tournament champion became the NCAA Tournament automatic qualifier from the conference. The Arizona Wildcats, finish the season atop of the conference with a 14–4 record, and the UCLA Bruins were the two top-seed teams in the tournament. The third-seeded Washington Huskies won the tournament. This was the final tournament ever held under the "Pac-10" name, as Colorado and Utah would join the conference in July, making it the "Pac-12."

  • The annual Coach of the Year Award was renamed to honor Coach John Wooden.[5] Sean Miller of the Arizona Wildcats was the 2011 winner.
  • Chick Hearn Court between Staples Center and LA Live was the location for the new Pac-10 FanFest, featuring a basketball sport court, beer garden, family-friendly activities like face painting and sign making, a live DJ, band and cheer performances, and Wolfgang Puck food specials. The Women's trophy presentation and institutional headquarters were also located at the FanFest.
  • The championship game was the first title game in conference history to require an overtime period.[6]
  • Washington and Washington St. were the only arch rivals to meet up in this year. It was the first arch rival tournament game of any pair in two years.
  • Klay Thompson of Washington State had a record setting 29 FG attempts vs. Washington. His record still stands. He was 15 of 29 .
  • Jeremy Green's 15 3-pt. FG attempts vs. Oregon State set a tournament record. Playing for Stanford, he was 7 of 15.[7]
  • With the automatic bid to the NCAA tournament, Washington made its 16th appearance. Three other teams were invited to the 2011 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Championship: UCLA, USC, and Arizona.
