No. 15 Arizona races back, eliminates Colorado Buffaloes from Pac-12 tournament

Aaron Holiday ranks within the top 20 for minutes played per game this season and will lead his team at it starts its run in the Pac-12 Tournament against Stanford on Thursday Buffs Fall To Arizona In Pac-12 Quarterfinals

The USC Trojans will face the Arizona Wildcats in the Pac-12 basketball tournament final on Saturday, start time at 10:00 PM ET, at T-Mobile Arena, Las Vegas, NV.

The Cardinal were down 47-43 when Davis picked up his fourth foul 66 seconds into the second half, and they managed to keep the deficit to a single digit until he finally got back onto the floor in hopes of another run with 6:50 remaining.

Ayton was one of three Wildcats to score in double figures, with seniors Dusan Ristic and Parker Jackson-Cartwright adding 16 and 10 points, respectively.

Deandre Ayton, who prior to the Pac-12 tournament had not scored 30 points in a game this season, posted his second straight 30-point outing as he dropped 32 points and 18 rebounds on the Trojans. Whether it was siphoning up rebounds on the offensive glass, hitting a cutter for an easy bucket or hitting his shots in the paint, the 19-year-old Bahamian proved too much to handle for the Trojans. The defense has been the difference-maker, as opponents accounted for less than one point per possession four times over that stretch, including against Oregon State and Oregon in the Pac-12 tournament.

"There was a lot of exhaustion late in the overtime period, and we were just run down", Bruins head coach Steve Alford said.

USC is in its first Pac-12 Tournament final since 2009, when it won the only conference tourney title in school history.

Or at least should have been. By the end of the game, USC's 7 were only half of Arizona's total.

"Our defense right now is the best it's been". "We finished third in this league. I think our defense was intact".

That earned Collier a personal foul and Colorado a technical, with Trier hitting the two technical foul shots and Jackson-Cartwright hitting 1 of 2.


Arizona's Rawle Alkins celebrates after dunking against Southern California during the second half of an NCAA college basketball game for the Pac-12 men's tournament championship Saturday, March 10, 2018, in Las Vegas.

Jalen Hill and Cody Riley were also part of the Louis Vuitton (and two lesser stores) Caper.

But this sort of offense - can shoot the 3 from all five spots, has an elite rebounder in Thomas Welsh, is led by one of the nation's best guards in Aaron Holiday - can win more than its share of games. The Wildcats move on to face the Stanford-UCLA victor in Friday's semifinals. "I thought, if we could have gotten that thing within striking distance, I probably would have gone with him, but I certainly didn't want to risk him or his ankle for the sake of just putting him back in the game".

Arizona realizes the same with USC arguably the second-most talented team in the conference. And I believe that UCLA had two, if I'm right. "They are so hard to defend".

"They're an elite-level shooting team with arguably the best point guard in the country". Alkins traveled after inbound pass and Holiday's desperation 3-point heave at the buzzer banged off the back of the rim and the game went to overtime.

Some still amazingly believe he should be on the hot seat at UCLA.

Steve Alford might not wear red jackets or nets anymore, but he can coach.

Some are also delusional.
