The Pac-12 Conference regular season has officially come to a close. The best time of the year is here: March Madness.

The USC Trojans survived a close call against Arizona State on Saturday night to finish out the regular season, and UCLA and Arizona remain at 1-2 respectively entering Las Vegas.
