Despite Boasting one of the best basketball players in the nation, The University of Washington Huskies remains one of the nation’s best basketball bargains
The Washington Huskies have numerous opportunities for family outings. Looking for something to do that is entertaining, memory making, and affordable? On one hand, we must often play the “Meatloaf Compromise” (where two out of three ain’t bad). On the other hand, for those of us who refuse to compromise, the list of doable affordable but fun events continues to shrink.
But don’t blame the University of Washington Huskies, nor even the PAC-12. You see, the bottom line is that the PAC-12 conference remains an incredible bargain for NCAA basketball.
You see, the conference hosts arguably the best two players in NCAA basketball this year. From the University of Washington, there is point guard Markelle Fultz. And from UCLA there is point guard Lorenzo Ball. But if you want tickets, you will be surprised to find that the ticket prices fall into the $30-60 ranges.

The reason? The PAC-12 Tournament is happening at Las Vegas, Nevada. Las Vegas handles crowds of people routiniely. The city boasts plenty of quality hotel rooms, dining options, entertainment, shopping, and now basketball.
The Tournament begins with the first round game tip-off at 12 noon on Wednesday, March 8, 2017. While the top four-seeded teams will get a first round bye, teams seeded five through twelve will compete on day one. Eventually, winners of the four first round games will advance to meet the top four seeds in four quarterfinals on Thursday March 9th. Winners advance to the semifinals held on March 10. Finally, the PAC-12 championship game face off on March 12.
Even if you cannot jet down to Las Vegas to take in a game, you can tune in on the PAC-12 tournament. But if you want to enjoy one of the true bargains left in the modern age, catch a live game.
It’s a thrill that will carry over for many weeks afterwards.
