EUGENE, Ore. -- After Saturday night's performance against Stanford, the Oregon Men's Basketball team is the number one seed going into the PAC-12 tournament. They look to open the tournament at 12 p.m. on Thursday against the winner of No. 8 Oregon State and No. 9 Utah in the first round game.

Oregon became the first PAC-12 school and second power five college (joining Ohio State) overall to win regular season conference titles in men's basketball, women's basketball and football in the same academic year.

"I mean this is a new team, we're going to try to make something different happen. You have to handle business whoever you're playing and game plan and try to win that game," Oregon point guard Payton Pritchard said. "I think we're in a good spot, obviously in our last six games we're five and one, the one loss being to Arizona State. Hopefully we can just carry that on and win these next three games and keep increasing."

Pritchard won PAC-12 Player of the Year and leads the nation with 139 consecutive starts.

"We'll just go play and hope that, like I said, we're able to survive that first game and then the adrenaline kicks in and you kind of just go from there. We will have a tough game, Oregon State beat us and Utah played hard as heck so we're going to have a tough game," head coach Dana Altman said.

Oregon is set to play at noon on Thursday at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
