Pac-12 Conference men's basketball

Men's college basketball in the Pac-12 Conference began in 1915 with the formation of the Pacific Coast Conference (PCC).[1] Principal members of the PCC founded the Athletic Association of Western Universities (AAWU) in 1959, and subsequently went by the names Big Five, Big Six, Pacific-8, and Pacific-10, becoming the Pac-12 in 2011.[2] Competing in the Pac-12 are the Arizona Wildcats, Arizona State Sun Devils, California Golden Bears, Colorado Buffaloes, Oregon Ducks, Oregon State Beavers, Stanford Cardinal, UCLA Bruins, USC Trojans, Utah Utes, Washington Huskies, and Washington State Cougars.

As of 2017, Pac-12 schools have won a record 16 Division I national titles.[a] Oregon won the first NCAA Tournament in 1939.[5] UCLA has won 11 national titles, the most of any Division I team.[6] Arizona has won the most recent national title, winning in 1997. Stanford, Utah & Cal round out the 16 titles coming in 1942, 1944 & 1959 respectively.[7]
