If you want tickets for the action in Vegas, you'll have to get creative about finding seats.

For the first time ever, the Pac-12 men's basketball tournament is sold out from start to finish. On Monday, the conference announced that all tickets to this week's tournament have been scooped up, something that has never happened in the history of the tournament.

Last year, the games on Thursday, Friday and Saturday sold out, but there were still tickets for the opening round of games. This year, even those games are sold out. There's such depth in the conference this year that it is nearly impossible to pick the winners of these games, and clearly, nobody wants to miss any of the action.

Danette Leighton, the Chief Marketing Officer for the Pac-12, had this to say about the 2016 men's basketball tournament.

"This sell-out is evidence that the Pac-12 Tournament has become a must-attend event for our fans. Our talented student-athletes are in for a world-class championship experience in Las Vegas and we are thrilled to have a passionate crowd to share in that excitement."

The conference kicks off on Wednesday afternoon and concludes on Saturday night. Oregon's first game will be on Thursday at Noon PT against the winner of Wednesday's game between Washington and Stanford.
