WSU basketball looking for first Pac-12 Tourney win in 8 years

3 conference championship matchups that we really want to see this week

The Buffs went 8-for-25 in the opening frame while WSU shot a robust.567 (17-for-30).

While the Golden Bears are not exactly the toughest draw for Oregon State, California does present a formidable challenge with a balanced style of play and some superbly talented interior players, including All-Pac-12 First Team selection Ivan Rabb (14.3 PPG).

The Pac-12 Men's Basketball Tournament starts tomorrow and according to TickPick, a secondary ticket marketplace, the basketball tournament based in Las Vegas is the cheapest among the six major tournaments.

Ball was named the Pac-12's Freshman of the Year and was a first-team all-conference performer who is averaging 14.9 points, 6.2 rebounds, 7.8 assists, 2.0 steals and shooting 55 percent.

The Wildcats (27-4 overall, 16-2 in Pac-12 play) begin play in this Pac-12 tournament as the regular-season champs and No. 1 seeds. It sets up a quarterfinal date against No. 7 Arizona Thursday night at 7 p.m. MST.

Oregon State head coach Wayne Tinkle said the Beavers are going into the Pac-12 Tournament with "a clean slate".

Bird scored a team-high 20 points, as he helped to stave off the late push in the must-win game. White had 17 in the second half alone. "We have to play smarter offense, We have to come out of the gate and play well".

FULTZ'S FINALE?: The Pac-12 Tournament was expected to be the final go-around for Washington freshman point guard Markelle Fultz.

If USC still has cause to worry, it only has to look to last season to the other USC: South Carolina, which finished 24-8 in a power conference and missed the tournament. As a result, the third-place team is a UCLA team that's 28-3 with wins at Kentucky and Arizona.

Payton Pritchard continued his steadiness with eight points, six rebounds and three dimes. It's just the second time since the conference tournament returned in 2002 that ASU has beaten an opponent three times in one season and the first since they turned the trick over Arizona in 2009. So, no, the Pac-12 is not the best league in the country despite the fact that Arizona's Rawle Alkins made that claim this week.

"Honestly, right now, we don't even know if we're in", Metu said earlier this week.

At $17 a share, Snap hopes to raise $3.4 bn in IPO
The closest ratio, according to Shen, was Twitter's , with the social media company's IPO valuation being 44.8 times its revenue. All told , the school sold 1.4 million shares of Snap stock, at the opening price of $17, making a cool $24 million.

For the Buffs they had no perimeter presence in the first half.

Colorado found themselves in foul trouble toward the end of the second half and Arizona took advantage of that and continued to grow their lead.

Ultimately, Cal, which shot only 40 percent, prevailed with a 67-62 victory and never relinquished its second-half lead in the waning minutes.

In order for UCLA to advance to the Pac-12 Tournament Semifinals, they have to beat Southern Cal tonight.

Arizona would maintain their 10 point lead for most of the second half but they still had a hard time controlling White.

Confidence is key for Dorsey, and dropping 21 on the Sun Devils in Oregon's first postseason game is a great sign.

"We're a different team". They've got to block out against bigger guys. It was early January, now here we are in early March.

Colorado has since gone 1-6 vs. Arizona and XJ has seen them all.

"I thought that really got Tyler going, because he didn't shoot the three well".

No. 5 Cal vs.
