The 2020 Pac-12 Tournament bracket was finally released and Oregon State has drawn a #8 overall seed, after finishing with a 7-11 mark in conference play.
The Beavers will face off with #9 seed Utah in the First Round of the tournament on Wednesday, March 11th at 12 PM PT. If they beat the Utes, they will set up a match-up with rival and #1 seed Oregon in the quarterfinals on Thursday, March 12th at 12 PM PT. If they lose to Utah, their season could potentially be over, unless they are offered and accept a bid to a post-season tournament.
In order to make the NCAA Tournament, Oregon State would likely have to win the Pac-12 Tournament and receive the conference’s automatic bid, which would require them to win four straight games in four days. The tournament runs from Wednesday, March 11th through Saturday, March 14th and will take place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. All of the tournament’s games will be televised on the Pac-12 Network or Fox Sports 1.
