UCLA Bruins vs. Arizona Wildcats Betting Preview 03/09/18

Arizona freshman Deandre Ayton has been named player and newcomer of the year on the All-Pac-12 Conference men's basketball team announced Tuesday by The Associated Press. USC hasn't won the tournament since 2009. By no means are they locks, however.

The win moved Arizona (25-7) into a Pac-12 Tournament semifinal game on Friday at 7 p.m. against the victor of Thursday afternoon's UCLA-Stanford game.

Nick Rakocevic led three Trojans in double figures with 13 points while also grabbing six rebounds, with all of his points coming in the first half. Ayton leads Arizona with a double-double per game, putting up 19.6 points and 11.2 rebounds per game while Jackson-Cartwright leads the Wildcats in assists with 4.6 assists per game this season. The Wildcats (25-7) were disjointed at times on offense, unable to find seams in Colorado's zone defense.

"Our defense right now is the best it's been". Soon after he was helped from the floor, the Wildcats put together a 14-0 run to take a 58-41 lead and Colorado never seriously threatened again.

That changed over the next 25 minutes with the Wildcats taking the rebounding battle 42-33 including a 10-8 advantage on the offensive glass.

Not coincidentally, the end came at the same time Buffs starting point guard McKinley Wright IVcrashed out of bounds and left the game with an ankle injury, helping pave the way for an 83-67 Arizona win. But I don't want to get these guys' hopes up.

"I give the leadership of our team a lot of credit", Miller said.

Why? Firstly, I would like to make something clear: there is a big difference between blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies. You could safely say that – at least for the coming years – blockchain will be one of the top technological trends.

McLaughlin scored USC's next seven points as the Trojans trimmed it down to six points, but Rustic and Ayton quickly dragged the deficit up to 12. The upperclassmen for the Bruins did all they could, but the Wildcats held them scoreless in the extra five minutes to move on to the finals. Arizona vs USC tv channel is on FS1. "... I will say I'm confident in the team that we have right now, and that we can compete with some of the best teams in college basketball". We weren't good enough. The lone blemish in that time came in an overtime loss to OR on the road. Despite a down year for the Pac-12 in general, there's still a chance for the conference to make some noise in the NCAAs.

There is, however, a major issue that any team that drafts Ayton will need to address: Is it worth drafting him when he does basically everything you should not do while playing National Basketball Association 2K?

I'm not sure many 6s want to guard all of that on short notice.

Deandre Ayton is the heart and soul of the Arizona Wildcats and is likely going to be the first overall pick selected in the 2018 NBA Draft. But the Trojans counter with skilled point guard Jordan McLaughlin, bouncy Elijah Stewart and the sharpshooting Mathews.

At times, it looked as if their lead might wither. "It was a solid game in that department". It could be the rallying cry that carries the Wildcats deep in the NCAA Tournament. Key turnovers and fast break opportunities were big for the Trojans; they capitalized on every single one.

Trier is doing pretty well off the field, too.

"When you get to the tournament, you play against teams you haven't seen before", Arizona coach Sean Miller said. We have had a few games where our turnover count was low, but we also had a very slow play to our game.
