SEATTLE (AP) — Stanford is going to the NCAA tournament again, likely as a No. 1 seed. California, Oregon State and Arizona State are almost assured of joining the Cardinal after all finished with at least 21 wins in the regular season.

The question for the Pac-12 is whether anyone else can play their way into the NCAAs with a strong performance in the conference tournament this week at KeyArena in Seattle.

The tournament gets started on Thursday with UCLA facing Colorado; USC against Arizona; Washington State against Oregon and Washington taking on Utah. Stanford, California, Oregon State and Arizona State all received first-round byes after finishing in the top four of the conference standings.

Right now, those four are almost locks for the NCAAs. But the next tier — USC and Washington especially — could play themselves in.
