2014 PacWest Basketball Tournament Bracket Announced

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. – The field is set for the 2014 PacWest Basketball Tournament, which will be held at Point Loma’s Golden Gymnasium March 6-8. After another epic season of PacWest basketball, 12 teams will battle for two automatic bids to the NCAA Tournament.

In the men’s tournament, California Baptist locked up the No. 1 seed and its first PacWest regular season title last week. Dominican secured the No. 2 spot and the other opening-round bye with a win Saturday night, running its winning streak to 10 games. Dixie State is No. 3 and will face No. 6 Hawai’i Pacific in the opening game Thursday at 1 p.m. PST. The other opening round game will pit No. 4 BYU-Hawaii against No. 5 Chaminade at 3:15 p.m.
