OR begins Pac-12 Tournament with 80-57 win over ASU

"They were offensive juggernauts tonight", Colorado coach Tad Boyle said. They've got some good players. Again, UCLA would get a Sacramento pod, which would be great and ensure a relatively easy path to a Sweet 16, but getting through the regional would be really tough.

Also, that game overcame a slow start to play OVER a total of 134. 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. They had a higher FG percentage, 29 of 68 (42.6%), but what killed the Huskies was their lack of 3 point shots made, 5 of 24 (20.8%). "We have to come out every day and play like it's our last game".

"I'm excited that we took a step in the program", Hurley said.

"We've just got to bring the energy and come ready to play", McLaughlin said. "They're a great team, we know that". The Wildcats, as 11-point favorites, led that game by 19 early in the second half, but let Colorado rally for the back-door cover. Xavier Johnson had seven points at the half.

"So we feel like we're in pretty good shape for the NCAA Tournament", Enfield said, "being a decent seed as well". "There's no doubt about it".

For the selection process to result in two No. 1 seeds for western teams, Arizona would have to win the Pac-12, and do it impressively, with Trier taking the lead role.

The victor of Wednesdays game will play No. 2 seed Arizona, which is ranked seventh overall in the Associated Press Top-25 poll.

Mouths agape on the bench, USC looked for answers from above during the first half of its crucial Pac-12 tournament opener against Washington. He was second on the team averaging 14 points and first in rebounds with averaging 7. Three of the last six were decided by five points or fewer.

India set series benchmarks on tough batting day
Rahul is the first batsman to manage 200 runs or more in the present series - his tally being 215 (ave.53.75) in four innings. India at 242 for 7 and all top order batsmen left, had little hope to further bulge the overall lead.

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

Research conducted in 2011 by FiveThirtyEight found that teams playing closer to home than their opponents enjoy a significant advantage in the NCAA Tournament.

The Ducks swept the season series, winning 86-63 at home on January 19 and surviving with a 68-65 win in Berkeley, Calif., on February 22. "Give them credit. We didn't play well". Whoever wins the Pac-12 tournament will have a compelling argument to be a No. 1 or at least No. 2 seed in the tournament. He still had a major impact on the Wildcats' victory.

California had a hard time shaking an Oregon State team that had won five games all season. A 3-pointer by Washington guard David Crisp that could have tied the game at 76 missed.

Arizona State's starters accounted for 96 of their 98 points as the Sun Devils lit up the Cardinal defense for 50 points in the first half.

The Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Year, Jordan Bell finished with six boards, six points, two blocked shots and a stolen pass.
