The Arizona Wildcats knocked off the UCLA Bruins on Thursday night and reached the Pac-12 Tournament semifinals for the second straight year. While most had them pencilled in to face the one-seed Washington Huskies, a gutsy performance from the No. 8 Oregon St. Beavers led them to a thrilling upset victory to set them up with the Wildcats.
The UA and OSU met up once in the regular season, and the 'Cats needed overtime to come away with the victory at home. Jared Cunningham is an electric scorer for the Beavers and Devon Collier lit up the Huskies for 19 points. Big man Joe Burton does a little bit of everything and is capable of scoring, rebounding and even handling the ball and dishing it out to teammates.
Despite their 7-11 mark in conference play, Arizona cannot take Oregon State lightly for even a minute. This team has a ton of talent and they're hungry for the automatic bid that comes along with winning the conference title.
The game is scheduled for a 6 p.m. tipoff from Los Angeles, which is 7 p.m. in Arizona. FOX Sports Net will have the coverage once again.
