Can UCLA basketball win the Pac-12 tournament?

It's a good thing too because the victory likely guarantees Andy Enfield's squad a place in the NCAA Tournament for the second consecutive season.

Arizona State 98, Stanford 88 (OT): Obinna Oleka had 27 points and 13 rebounds, and the Sun Devils (15-17) dominated in overtime to beat the Cardinal (14-17) in the opening game of the Pac-12 Tournament. "They were playing up tight, so I swept through and went to the rim". The Sun Devils haven't necessarily been sticking with the other teams during their most recent defeats, but I think they'll be highly motivated here and bag a cover in a game that could be a lot closer than some people think. "They're well-coached. They've got great balance inside and out". The Beavers had an early 10-4 run to lead by eight and withstood a run by Cal to stay within 32-29 at halftime.

The co-Pac-12 champions shot 56 percent, made 10 3-pointers and held almost everyone except Derrick White in check on defense.

Metu finished with a game-high 24 points.

“Were a good matchup for them, ” WSU coach Ernie Kent said. "I hope we can do it (win) one more time".

Again defeated by Sean Miller, Boyle said, "there's nothing to be ashamed of when you lose to a team like Arizona". "There's no doubt about it".

Fifth-ranked OR may have looked under pressure Thursday in the first half against Arizona State, but the Ducks played their normal selves in the second half, loose and in control while having fun. The Trojans, who finished the regular season as the top-stealing team in the Pac-12, were able to swipe away a total of 14 steals Wednesday.

"(If) we play the first half like we did tonight, Arizona is probably not going to let us back in the game", Boyle said. USC responded by finishing the first half on a 10-2 run that was capped off with a dunk from USC sophomore Chimezie Metu. In that stretch he is 6.8 points, 5.0 rebounds and 26.7 minutes. This allowed Arizona to take a ten-point lead. Colorado surged with back-to-back 3-pointers from Josh Fortune and White - the Buffs' only makes from beyond the arc in the half - as part of an 8-0 run to take a 37-36 lead.

The Bruins march to a tournament title and a possible #1 seed in the NCAA tournament may start with USC.

The Buffaloes split with Washington State in the regular season, losing 91-89 in OT on the road and winning 81-49 at home.

When the tournament starts on Wednesday the Trojans play the Washington Huskies, a win there and they get a rematch with the Bruins on Thursday night. While there's a chance that something truly insane happens (Gonzaga and the Pac-12 Tournament victor both being 1 seeds, with one being shipped out), the most likely scenario is that the Pac-12 Tournament victor and Gonzaga will be paired as the 1 and 2 seed in the West (in whatever order). He still had a major impact on the Wildcats' victory. The junior, listed at 5-foot-11, had a career-high seven rebounds Thursday night, as well as seven assists. After a layup from Drew Eubanks to tie the game at 22 with 4:10 remaining in the half, it looked like the Beavers had an opportunity to pull off one of the biggest upsets in college basketball this season.
