Day three of the 2011 Pac-10 Conference Basketball Tournament at Staples Center is upon us, and we are down to the final four. There are two games on the docket for tonight's semifinal round. Here is a look at today's schedule, with all games televised on Fox Sports West (all times are PST):
6 p.m. - No. 1 Arizona Wildcats vs. No. 4 USC Trojans: These two teams split two meeting this season, with each team winning at home. USC needs a win, at least, to make the NCAA Tournament and, given that the game is in Los Angeles, the Trojans have a good chance to advance.
8:30 p.m. - No. 3 Washington Huskies vs. No. 7 Oregon Ducks: E.J. Singler led the Ducks to the upset of the tournament so far, a convincing 76-59 win over the No. 2 UCLA Bruins on Thursday night. Singler has scored 46 points in two games for the Ducks. Washington outlasted their rivals, the Washington State Cougars last night, 89-87. Washington and Oregon split two games this season, with each team winning at home.
