UCLA Vs. Arizona: Bruins Lose With The Final Score 66-58

The UCLA Bruins season ended today, as they lost to the Arizona Wildcats in the quarterfinals of the Pac 12 tournament with the final score 66-58. With a 79 RPI, the Wildcats will likely need to run the table to get into the NCAA tournament. The game was close midway through the second half, but Arizona was able to pull away to make the end result fairly comfortable.

Arizona was led by Solomon Hill who had 25 points and 12 rebounds, playing the entire game. Both teams shot under 40% in a game that wasn't very pretty to watch. The teams combined for 32 turnovers, and 38 field goals. Arizona's assist to turnover ratio was 0.4.

UCLA was led by Lazeric Jones who scored 17 points. The Bruins had three scorers with double digit points, as did Arizona. Neither team got much from their bench, the two benches combined for just 16 points. The area the Bruins did dominate was points in the paint, where the Bruins outscored Arizona 36-19.

Not that Arizona was shooting lights out from behind the arc. The Wildcats only made two more threes than UCLA. In fact, UCLA made 8 more field goals than Arizona. The difference of the game was what happened at the free throw line, where Arizona was 31-36. Joshua Smith and Travis Wear both fouled out, David Wear and Tyler Lamb finished with four fouls.

Not a great advertisement for Pac 12 basketball, but now Arizona moves on to take on the Oregon State Beavers tomorrow in the Semi-Finals.
