The 2012 Pac-12 Tournament kicks off on Wednesday and it's just the beginning of all the craziness that comes with March Madness. 

No Pac-12 team is ranked in the Top 25 right now, nor is their really any clear-cut favorite to win the tournament this week. 

It's a huge toss up right now, which is what makes the event so exciting. Each team has a chance to win it all, but those with the first-round bye obviously have the best shot. 

Washington, Cal, Oregon and Arizona have the best shot at winning, but really the tournament is up for grabs.  

With that said, here's what you need to know about the 2012 Pac-12 Tournament.

I give the edge to Washington, simply because they won the Pac-12 outright, meaning their confidence heading into the tournament will be sky high. 

Be on the lookout for Tony Wroten, a freshman guard capable of doing big things for Washington.
