No. 7 Arizona rolls over Colorado in Pac-12 quarters

OR was an 8- to 9-point favorite, and when Brooks missed a free throw with two seconds to go, the Ducks' lead stayed at eight. "I thought our defensive energy was pretty good", OR head coach Dana Altman said.

The Colorado Buffaloes men's basketball team suffered a rough end to their rough regular season Thursday night, as the No.7 Arizona Wildcats pulled away in the second half for a 92-78 victory.

Day three showcased the yin and yang of basketball-one game that was tight for forty minutes, and another that displayed sloppy play and uncharacteristically bad shooting by our own UCLA Bruins. OR and Arizona were Pac-12 co-champs in the regular season.

Torian Graham hit two 3-pointers and scored on a soaring dunk to bring ASU back within 10 (58-48) with 8:17 left. A spate of missed free throws by USC (15-23 for the game) ensured that would be the closest they would come to taking the lead.

No. 22 Notre Dame 77, No. 16 Florida State 73: Steve Vasturia and Bonzie Colson each scored 18 points and Notre Dame knocked off Florida State to advance to the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament title game.

Seeing that we are in Las Vegas for the Pac-12 tournament I should have put some money down on these California Golden Bears.

NOTES: Oregon entered the game second nationally at 6.8 blocks per game.

Bell was named to the all-Pac-12 second team. There is no such issue with Arizona, which has transformed into the most unsafe team out West after being riddled with injuries early in the season.

Arizona State had no answer for anything in the second half.

Tarik Phillip tied the game for the Mountaineers (26-7) with a 3-pointer with 1:41 left, and the Wildcats (20-13) came up empty at the other end. Arizona almost pulled away towards the end of the half, but a couple of big three-pointers from senior guards Josh Fortune and Derrick White kept the game close.

The Ducks have become accustomed to playing for the Pacific 12 Conference tournament title on Saturday.

The Trojans would go into the break down 38-35.

Kennedy Meeks had 19 points and 12 rebounds for the taller, deeper and more experienced Tar Heels, who dominated inside early but blew a 13-point lead in the second half. Rabb converted just one of his first eight field goal attempts, and finished the game 4/12 from the field. Allonzo Trier added 20 for the Wildcats. The Bears may have played their last game of the season, and now all they can do is wait and hope.

OR isn't used to fighting on the Pac-12 undercard, but that was the Ducks' draw Friday night.

"Our best players didn't play very well in those stretches", head coach Andy Enfield said.

The Trojans started off extremely slow and their crosstown rival Bruins took full advantage of that issue.

"Both are great programs, but it feels like USC is getting to where they want to be a little quicker", he said.

Those two victories secured their place as the Big Ten regular season champion.

UCLA survived an up and down performance from Pac-12 Conference Freshman of the Year, Lonzo Ball. "They can throw it to him, and he anchors them offensively". UCLA looked shaky at best in the first half, shooting 42% to Arizona's 46%.
