2023 WCC Tournament Bracket: Schedule, dates, game times, and seeding

Here’s everything you need to follow along with the 2023 WCC Tournament from Orleans Arena in Las Vegas.

The West Coast Conference bracket is set and will tip off on Thursday, March 2 at 9:00 p.m. ET from The Orleans Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. The games will air on regional sports networks for the early rounds, before shifting to ESPN2 for the quarterfinals and semifinals, and finally ESPN for the championship game.

The bracket is a ladder format with 10 teams, which means that the top 2 seeds get a bye to the semifinal, seeds 3 and 4 get a bye to the quarterfinals, seeds 5 and 6 get a bye to the second round, and seeds 7 through 10 will play in the first round.

Both Gonzaga and Saint Mary’s are safely in the NCAA Tournament, and the only question is will one or both teams be on a protected top-four seed line. As for the other eight teams heading to Vegas, they’ll need to find a way to win the event to play in March Madness. And that means likely beating both SMC and the Zags on back-to-back nights, a very tall order. No team outside of The Big Two in the league has won the WCC Tournament since 2008, when the San Diego Toreros took home the trophy.

The No. 1 seed in the event was determined by the NCAA’s NET rankings on the morning of February 26 via this projection. Saint Mary’s was No. 7 and Gonzaga No. 9, so SMC will be the No. 1 seed and wear the white jerseys in Las Vegas.
