No. 15 Arizona Surges Past Colorado 83-67 At Pac-12 Tourney

Deandrea Ayton scored a career-high 32 points in a win vs. UCLA

Holiday, the Pac-12 scoring leader at 20.1 points a game, played all 40 minutes for the second straight game. 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. Colorado and Arizona remain the only two teams to win at least one Pac-12 Tournament game in each season since the league expanded in 2011-12.

Welsh, a senior who is one of two Pac-12 players to average a double-double, became the 14th player in league history to reach 1,000 rebounds.

The tale of the tape has the Wildcats winning, but USC wants to pull off something they have only done once: win a conference tournament title.

Colorado (17-15) managed to hang with the Wildcats well into the second half despite playing a tough opening-round game the day before. I thought a lot of 50-50 balls that could have gone either way went to Arizona, which, again, they deserve them because they got them. Midway through the second half, Rawle Alkins threw down a dunk easily worthy of the top spot on Sports Center's Top-10 plays.

He had perhaps the best game of his college career Saturday night with a grown-man line of 32 points and 18 rebounds on 14-of-20 shooting from the field to lead Arizona to a 75-61 win over USC in the Pac-12 championship game.

After the Bruins defeated Stanford 88-77 in the quarterfinals of the Pac-12 tournament Thursday afternoon, the UCLA postgame celebration could be heard throughout the bowels of T-Mobile Arena.

Following three packed days of wall-to-wall Pac-12 hoops action, top seed Arizona and No. 2 seed USC have emerged from the pack as finalists and will battle for the trophy in Sin City in the Pac-12 Tournament championship.

USA: Il Presidente Trump ha incontrato i vertici dell'industria videoludica
Ma i due - riporta la Casa Bianca - hanno anche discusso di "vie alternative per affrontare le preoccupazioni degli Stati Uniti ". Così Federico Rampini commenta la notizia dell'incontro tra Kim Jong-un e Donald Trump annunciato da quest'ultimo con un tweet .

The Trojans were no match for Deandre Ayton, the Wildcats' 7-foot-1 freshman and potential No. 1 overall selection of the National Basketball Association draft in June, who out-muscled their frontcourt around the basket and put anyone who tried to stop him in foul trouble.

While USC punched its ticket to the Pac-12 Tourney title game by cruising past No. 6 seed OR with a 74-54 victory in Friday's semifinal, Arizona had to sweat it out 'til a dominant overtime performance clinched the 78-67 win over UCLA. The result: Alkins put USC's Elijah Stewart on a poster, which inspired the Cats to have a dunk party. The finish gave the Wildcats their first double-digit lead of the contest.

"We just have to play team basketball like we did tonight and the night before", McLaughlin said. Alkins and Ayton combined for 38 points, with Dusan Ristic producing a 16 point and 11 rebound double-double.

In the semifinals against OR on Friday night, USC had 20 turnovers.

"I didn't come here to really ride the coattails of past players", Ayton told FS1.

We see it in March Madness every year. Junior forward Chimezie Metu was especially helpful in that regard with four first-half steals. Ristic also had 16 points and five rebounds.

Ayton had 13 points and Mathews and Rakocevic had 11 apiece as USC took a 33-30 halftime lead.
