March is here — and so is the Pac-12 Tournament! No. 5 Oregon opens the event against Arizona State in Las Vegas, Nev. Tipoff from T-Mobile Arena is timed for noon PT, viewable on the Pac-12 Networks.
"We just need to follow what we've been trying to follow all year — rebound, limit our turnovers and share the basketball," said Dillon Brooks, the recently-crowned Pac-12 Player of the Year. "When we do those, we blow out teams. When we only do two of those things, games are pretty close."

The Ducks are 39-42 against the Sun Devils all-time, dating back to their first meeting in 1960-61. UO has taken eight of the past nine, most recently eclipsing ASU earlier this season, 71-70. Brooks poured in a team-high 27 points, including the final 12 UO points to secure the victory at Matthew Knight Arena.
“I think that was our game to win in Eugene,” ASU guard Tra Holder said. “But down the stretch, Dillon Brooks took it over. He’s [Pac-12] Player of the Year so we respect him. We’re going to watch him and see how we can correct our mistakes, so hopefully we’ll give ourselves a better chance to win.”
Below, you’ll find highlights from the Ducks’ and Sun Devils’ most recent outings. No. 6 Oregon trampled Oregon State on the road Saturday, 80-59, while Arizona State topped Stanford in overtime in Vegas on Wednesday, 98-88.
