UCLA guard Aaron Holiday tied a career high with 34 points and added eight assists and six rebounds as the fourth-seeded Bruins moved into the Pac-12 tournament semifinals with an 88-77 victory over Stanford on Thursday at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
LAS VEGAS (AP) - Deandre Ayton dribbled through the sea of red-and-white confetti, bobbing and weaving past cheerleaders and fans. "So we're going to have our hands full, but we have some pretty good players, too". Deandre Ayton recorded 16 points and 12 rebounds. It took overtime for the Wildcats to hold on to their ticket to the conference championship, taking down UCLA 78-67. Arizona had eight fewer rebounds than UCLA after the first 20 minutes of action and the Bruins were dominant on the offensive glass in the early going.
Holiday is on track to become the seventh Pac-12 player to average at least 20 points and five assists in a season.
UCLA is 21-11, and as of late Friday, most bracketoligists had them as an 11 seed in the NCAAs.
"All we talked about at halftime was rebounding and that was it", Wildcats head coach Sean Miller said. "I've been doubted all my life and when I'm challenged, I really rise to the challenge". "I think our defense was intact". They out rebounded the Wildcats 23-11, but the second half and overtime was a completely different story. Arizona reeled off 14 straight points and the Buffaloes never recovered.
Which leads to the next point.
"McKinley goes out, it might take us a while to figure things out offensively, but we weren't getting any stops", Colorado coach Tad Boyle said. "My hat goes off to them". Arizona has won the past two Pac-12 tournaments and three of the past four.
Miller's job appeared to be in jeopardy late in the season, when an ESPN report alleged he was caught on an Federal Bureau of Investigation wiretap discussing a $100,000 payment to lure Ayton to the school.
Ayton was one of the nation's top incoming recruits when he arrived in Tucson and lived up to expectations during a stellar freshman season with the 15th-ranked Wildcats.
The Trojans know it won't be easy beating the regular-season champions.
Pac-12 Network is included in the "Fubo Premier" channel package. Ayton also scored the first seven points of the extra frame that put the game away. As of this writing, 80% of betting tickets are on the Wildcats to cover the point spread this afternoon. He was sidelined for two minutes before returning to the court. "Defense leads to offense".
I'm not sure many 6s want to guard all of that on short notice.
Colorado looked like it had a shot at hanging with the Wildcats until Wright's injury.
Tonight's game will be shown on Fox Sports 1.
The combination of Ayton and Ristic left Metu and Rakocevic, the Trojans' forwards, in foul trouble for most of the second half.
Holiday has averaged 24.8 points and 7.2 assists over the last five games for UCLA. An invitation to a smaller postseason tournament seems nearly certain. 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.
