The Pacific Tigers men's basketball team represents the University of the Pacific. They are an NCAA Division I member, part of the West Coast Conference. The team is based in Stockton, California. They play their home games at the Alex G. Spanos Center and are led by head coach Damon Stoudamire.

On July 15, 2013, Pacific left the Big West Conference to rejoin the West Coast Conference. It had been a charter member of the WCC since 1952, but left in 1971 to join the Pacific Coast Athletic Association, later renamed to the Big West Conference.

In late 2015, investigations into improper academic benefits being provided to basketball players began.[2] On December 11, the school placed head coach Ron Verlin and assistant coach Dwight Young on suspension.[3] On December 18, the school self imposed a postseason ban for 2016 and a reduction in scholarships due to the pending academic fraud investigations.[4] On March 3, 2016, the school revealed that Verlin and Young were no longer employed by the university.[5]

On March 15, 2016, Pacific hired 13-year NBA veteran and 1996 NBA Rookie of the Year Damon Stoudamire as head coach.[6]
