The Arizona Wildcats and the UCLA Bruins face off in the 2012 Pac-12 Tournament on Thursday afternoon, and Arizona will have to try and capture this contest and two more without starting point guard Josiah Turner. Arizona's offense doesn't seem to need a real point guard this year (all the Wildcats have done a decent job distributing the basketball even though they've struggled with turnovers). Still, Arizona has had plenty of trouble matching up with UCLA this week. The Bruins have split the two contests with the Wildcats and nearly beat Arizona in Tucson, and this'll be a semi-home contest.
If Arizona wins, they will face the winner of the Washington-Oregon State matchup on Friday night.
