Rankings from AP Poll

The 2017 West Coast Conference Men's Basketball Tournament was a postseason men's basketball tournament for the West Coast Conference held March 3–7, 2017 at the Orleans Arena in Paradise, Nevada.[1] Regular-season champion Gonzaga also won the WCC tournament, and with it the conference's automatic bid into the 2017 NCAA Tournament with a 74-56 win over Saint Mary's in the finals.

The WCC's eight-year tournament contract with Orleans Arena expired after the 2016 WCC Tournament, with the WCC looking to potentially moving the tournament to a different Las Vegas-area venue (the MGM Grand Garden Arena or the T-Mobile Arena), keep it at the Orleans Arena, or move it elsewhere.[2] In May 2016, the WCC announced that it reached an agreement on a new three-year contract with the Orleans Arena, which will run through the 2019 WCC year-end tournament.[3]

Seeds

All 10 WCC teams were eligible for the tournament. The top six teams received a first round bye. Teams were seeded by record within the conference, with a tiebreaker system to seed teams with identical conference records.
