The 2012–13 West Coast Conference men's basketball season began with practices in October 2012 and ended with the 2013 West Coast Conference Men's Basketball Tournament at the Orleans Arena March 6–11, 2013 in Las Vegas. The regular season began in November, with the conference schedule starting at the end of December.

This was the 62nd season for the conference, and the 24th under its current name as "West Coast Conference". The conference began as the California Basketball Association in 1952, became the West Coast Athletic Conference in 1956, and dropped the word "Athletic" in 1989. After having no changes from 1980 until 2011, the conference will have its second change in three years in 2013. Original conference founder, and a fellow faith-based, private school Pacific will rejoin the conference.[1] Pacific will come from the Big West.

Pre-season[edit]

  • Pre-season media day was scheduled Monday, October 29, and took place at the Time Warner Cable SportsNet and Time Warner Cable Deportes Studios. Barry Tompkins hosted video interviews through WCCSports.com and Youtube.com beginning at 11:30 AM PDT. Jeff Lampe of WCC Live will also interviewed each coach and get a preview of their respective season. The regional television schedule announcement, the Pre-season Conference team, and the pre-season coaches rankings were some of the additional events that took place.
