UCLA takes 30-26 halftime lead over Arizona in Pac-12 semifinal

UCLA takes 30-26 halftime lead over Arizona in Pac-12 semifinal

USC never was closer than six after that. The Wildcats knocked down their shots down the stretch, and there would be no final push from the Trojans.

"He went off tonight", Rakocevic said a day later, "but you have to give us credit". "Whatever happens next, we'll find out tomorrow and go from there".

Arizona's DeAndre Ayton celebrates during the second half against OR in an NCAA college basketball game Saturday, Feb. 24, 2018, in Eugene, Ore. And that 14-0 run is a great example of that. The Buffs made just one of 10 3-point tries after halftime. "We have to lock in on defense".

Additionally, if you want to watch a replay of any game, FuboTV has included DVR, as well as a "Lookback" feature, which allows you to watch any previously aired sporting event up to 72 hours after the game without having to DVR it.

"He wanted to go back in towards the end, but the trainer said he's pretty sore and tender", Boyle said. "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". Colorado dropped to 17-5. Despite a bad shooting night (5/12), Holiday managed to get 15 points. The victor will clinch an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament, although the Wildcats should already be in the field of 68 regardless of Saturday's outcome. They will now wait until Sunday to see if they earn that NIT bid. "I think our defense was intact". Okay now that I got that off my chest, back to the matter at hand. Arizona limited USC to 40.7 percent from the field and 4-for-13 from three in the second half.

QUOTEWORTHY: "This has been an enjoyable group to coach".

That effort, combined with their shooting 58.6 percent from the field in the second half, is what led to Arizona outscoring USC by a 45-28 margin in the second half. Not only are the Wildcats the best team in the Pac-12, they now have an agenda to prove the NCAA wrong after the Sean Miller incident. Arizona is in the tournament final for the fourth time in the last five years and the 11th time in 21 tries overall. Arizona has won the past two Pac-12 tournaments and three of the past four.

Arizona improves its lead in the series to 18-13, winning 2 of 3 this year. "Against a team like Arizona that can not happen". Krystkowiak molded the Utes into a potential NCAA Tournament team, leading them to 19 wins and the No. 3 seed in this week's Pac-12 tournament in Las Vegas.




Despite a season of off-court drama, the Arizona Wildcats finished exactly where they were supposed to in the Pac-12.

He added that Ristic was not called for a foul and called it a "big advantage".

Arizona's 26 free throws made and 38 attempted were both season highs by a Colorado opponent. Alkins had 15 points and seven rebounds.

While Trier had 12 points, Ayton had six points and three rebounds.

Freshman Kezie Okpala had a season-high 23 points and Reid Travis had 17 points and 14 rebounds for the Cardinal (18-15), who had won five of six and seven of 10.

The Bruins' average margin of victory in their last five games has been 4.0, down from 6.1 for the season.

On the season, USC basketball averages 78.2 points, 34.7 rebounds and 16.0 assists per game. He has 12 career double-figure scoring games, with eight coming in the last 11 contests. Despite a down year for the Pac-12 in general, there's still a chance for the conference to make some noise in the NCAAs.
