The 2019 Pac-12 Conference Men's Basketball Tournament presented by New York Life was a postseason men's basketball tournament for the Pac-12 Conference played from March 13–16, 2019, at T-Mobile Arena on the Las Vegas Strip in Paradise, Nevada. No. 6 seed Oregon Ducks upset No. 1 seed Washington 68–48 in the championship, receiving the conference's automatic bid to the 2019 NCAA Tournament. Payton Pritchard of Oregon was named the tournament's Most Outstanding Player.

Seeds[edit]

All 12 Pac-12 schools were eligible to participate in the tournament. Teams were seeded by conference record, with a tiebreaker system used to seed teams with identical conference records. As a result, the top four teams receive a bye to the quarterfinals of the tournament.

Tie-breaking procedures for determining all tournament seeding was:

  • For two-team tie

1. Results of head-to-head competition during the regular season.

2. Each team’s record (won-lost percentage) vs. the team occupying the highest position in the final regular standings, and then continuing down through the standings until one team gains an advantage. When arriving at another group of tied teams while comparing records, use each team’s record (won-lost percentage) against the collective tied teams as a group (prior to that group’s own tie-breaking procedure), rather than the performance against individual tied teams.

3. Won-lost percentage against all Division I opponents.

4. Coin toss conducted by the Commissioner or designee.

  • For multiple-team tie

1. Results (won-lost percentage) of collective head-to-head competition during the regular season among the tied teams.

2. If more than two teams are still tied, each of the tied team’s record (won-lost percentage) vs. the team occupying the highest position in the final regular season standings, and then continuing down through the standings, eliminating teams with inferior records, until one team gains an advantage.

When arriving at another group of tied teams while comparing records, use each team’s record (won-lost percentage) against the collective tied teams as a group (prior to that group’s own tie-breaking procedure), rather than the performance against individual tied teams.

After one team has an advantage and is seeded, all remaining teams in the multiple-team tie-breaker will repeat the multiple-team tie-breaking procedure.

If at any point the multiple-team tie is reduced to two teams, the two-team tie-breaking procedure will be applied.

3. Won-lost percentage against all Division I opponents.

4. Coin toss conducted by the Commissioner or designee.
