Pac-12 Tournament tips off today

There's still a chance for the Cougs to head to the Tourney... A small one... But it's still there.

Troy Wayrynen-USA TODAY Sports

The best part of March Madness is that any team can win any game at any time. It's happened before.

But can that same team win 4 games in row? The Cougs are going to try to find out starting tomorrow afternoon at the MGM Grand.

WSU will face Colorado in the opening round of the Pac-12 tournament tomorrow. The Cougs are 0-2 against the Buffs this season, but their final meeting of the year should give WSU some hope. Que Johnson went off for a career high 25 points and led WSU to a 3 point lead at the end of the fist over time. Then this shot happened. Despite Don MacLean's constant pleading, the Cougars decided not to foul with a 3 point lead and seconds to play... And George King made them pay. The Buffaloes dominated the 2nd OT and won the game 87-81.

Much like the 2015-16 season, the conference tournament has not been kind to WSU either. Washington State has never won a tourney game when they were seeded 9th or worse and the Cougars haven't won a Pac-12 Tourney game since 2009, when Tony Bennett and WSU beat Ernie Kent and Oregon.

The winner of tomorrow's matchup will take on Arizona on Thursday at 2:40.

Here's a schedule for all the games today from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. You can watch all the games on the Pac-12 Network.

2:30 PT (12) WSU vs. (5) Colorado
