The 2013–14 Pacific-12 Conference men's basketball season begins with practices in October 2013 and ends with the 2014 Pacific-12 Conference Men's Basketball Tournament on March 15, 2014 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Paradise, Nevada. The regular season begins on the first weekend of November 2013, with the conference schedule starting on December 2013.

This is the third season under the Pacific-12 Conference name and the 55th since the conference was established under its current charter as the Athletic Association of Western Universities in 1959. Including the history of the Pacific Coast Conference, which operated from 1915 to 1959 and is considered by the Pac-12 as a part of its own history, this is the Pac-12's 99th season of men's basketball.
