No. 15 Arizona surges past Colorado at Pac-12 tourney

The Wildcats knocked off Colorado this afternoon and gets a matchup against UCLA as they hope to win the Pac-12 tournament.

Colorado's game plan was clear at T-Mobile Arena, take Ayton out of the game and make everyone else beat it.

The slow start for the Wildcats, was not unexpected for a team that arrived in Las Vegas less than 24-hours before tip-off, squaring off against a Colorado team that shot a season-high against ASU, knocking the favored Sun Devils out of the tournament, in the first round. Defensively, Stanford yields 74.9 points per game against the opposing teams.

"That's all I can really do", Holiday said.

ESPN reported that coach Sean Miller could be heard discussing payment to a potential recruit on wiretaps from an FBI investigation into corruption in college basketball.

But our defense and rebounding was not good enough for us to rely on today to keep us in the game.

Trier's last game at McKale Center was a bit un-Trier like in many ways.

Up by just two at halftime, Arizona led just 42-39 with 13:44 left before the game changed drastically.

Outside of testing positive for a banned substance a couple weeks ago, it's been a fantastic season for Arizona's Allonzo Trier.

Inslee, who steps in on a long and proud tradition of states defying D.C. on various undertakings they don't agree with. Should they do so, we know Attorney General Bob Ferguson will mount a vigorous, unyielding defense in court.

"We were not good rebounding all night", Boyle said.

"That actually did kind of mess up my rhythm and flow up, especially a guy like me", he said. I came back and I'm trying to get integrated back into the team.

"I just tried to see the way they were playing me", Holiday said. The Wildcats struggled to get him the ball quite a bit and when he did get the ball near the basket there were plenty of Buffaloes around him. Despite a down day from Pac-12 Player of the Year Deandre Ayton, who fouled out after just 10 points and six rebounds, Arizona muscled its way to the next round with stout defense and five double-digit scorers.

"It's incredible", Ayton said of playing alongside Ristic. "I was rushing all my shots".

The Buffaloes had a hard time getting into their offense without the freshman leader and Arizona took advantage, going on a 14-0 run to push the lead to 58-41.

Colorado focusing so much attention on Ayton meant another opportunity for fellow big man Dusan Ristic who finished the win with 16 points and 11 rebounds.

Trier is doing pretty well off the field, too.

"He understands this is the last time he's going to go down this road", Trier said. We had a lot of players working together. We had some open looks that didn't go in.

Stanford (18-15) did just that Thursday, making a game of it against fourth-seeded UCLA (21-10) despite foul trouble and the Bruins' superior depth.

The UCLA Bruins (20-10) are coming from an 83-72 win over USC to close out the regular season game. 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.
