The 2012 Pac-12 Men's Basketball Tournament gets underway on Wednesday afternoon at Staples Center in Los Angeles. Here is a look at the Stanford Cardinal, who watched a hot start to the season fall away, but still managed to salvage a winning record in the conference and will enter the tournament as the No. 7 seed.

Team: Stanford Cardinal

Head Coach: Johnny Dawkins, fourth year at Stanford

2011-2012 Record: 20-10, 10-8 in conference

RPI Rank: 106

Tournament Seed: 7

First Round Opponent: No. 10 seed Arizona st. Sun Devils

Season vs. Opponent: The Cardinal only faced off against the Sun Devils once before this season, when they picked up an easy 68-44 win

Up Next If They Win: No. 2 seed California Golden Bears

Leading Scorer: Chasson Randle leads Stanford with 13.0 points per game, although Josh Randle is no slouch with 12.4 PPG for the Cardinal

2011 Pac-12 Tournament Finish: Stanford entered last year's tournament as the No. 8 seed, but were bounced in the first round by No. 9 seed Oregon St. Beavers, 69-67. They'll hope for a much stronger performance this time around.
