For the first time in conference history, the WCC's premier event will be held at a neutral site. The WCC Men's and Women's Basketball Championships consists of 14 thrilling men's and women's games over a four-day period with the winner of each tournament earning the right to Advance to the Dance. The women's event features the nationally televised WCC Women's Basketball Championship on ESPNU on March 9th, while the entire event culminates later that evening with the nationally televised WCC Men's Basketball Championship Game on ESPN in primetime at 6:00 PM (PT).

The WCC Tournament is traditionally one of the most entertaining post-season tournaments in all of college basketball. Last season, three WCC men's teams (Gonzaga, Saint Mary's, and San Diego) advanced to the NCAA Tournament, giving the WCC the fifth highest percentage of teams to earn NCAA bids. While the three teams marked an all-time high on the men's side, WCC women's basketball advanced multiple teams into the postseason for the 10th consecutive season with San Diego earning the automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament and Gonzaga participating in the WNIT.

A nationally recognized force in intercollegiate athletics, the West Coast Conference consists of Gonzaga University, Loyola Marymount University, Pepperdine University, University of Portland, Saint Mary's College, University of San Diego, University of San Francisco, and Santa Clara University.

Don't miss this opportunity to see this historic event when the WCC Tournament hits the bright lights of Las Vegas. Enjoy all the great action by getting your exclusive Vegas packages today!
