Coach Tony Bryce is thrilled to host this elite team, we hope to see more NCAA teams visit in the future.
Having a team of this calibre to play is huge for recruiting.
Pacific, located in Stockton, Calif., finished last season atop the Big West conference with an 11-5 mark before being bounced in the opening round of their conference tournament. The Tigers, whose most recent trip to the NCAA tournament came in 2006, are oftentimes best remembered for producing the 1998 NBA Draft's first overall selection, 7-foot-1 centre, Michael Olowokandi. Head coach Bob Thomason has led Pacific for the past 20 years and has guided the Tigers to three straight 20-win seasons.
