Tv channel schedule, scores and updates, Pac-12 Tournament Final

Teams in the Pac-12 Conference who needed at least one win in the conference tournament to give the selection committee something to chew on were victorious Thursday night.

USC defeated Oregon State and Oregon by a combined 33 points. By no means are they locks, however.

Since that loss, though, Arizona has reeled off six wins in seven games.

UCLA's main goal over Arizona was to take away the inside presence of Dusan Ristic and DeAndre Ayton, while limiting second chance opportunities. It's the only game this year that we had not one offensive rebound, and UCLA had some killer second shots in the first half.

"We're playing as hard (on) defense as we can", he said. Sam Vecenie of The Athletic reported that Ayton believes he is the best 2K player in Arizona's locker room, which is a distinction you'd assume a bunch of people on the Wildcats want.

If it weren't for Ayton, Arizona would have been in trouble offensively. Ayton and Ristic scored the final 13 Arizona points of the first half.

"Nobody has the competitiveness like me, you know what I'm saying?'" said Ayton, per USA Today. "Got a country on my back that I'm representing". But now an "us against the world" mentality has taken hold and the Wildcats are rolling. UCLA beat Arizona at McKale Center. Arizona vs USC tv channel is on FS1. We fought all year, and hopefully we can continue to fight here for a couple more weeks.

Who We Like: The under is 14-2-1 in the Trojans' last 17 games overall, is 18-701 in their last 26 conference games, and is a flawless 5-0 in their last five games coming off a victory.

With it, the Trojans have seemingly played themselves into the NCAA Tournament after this late-season run, particularly after disposing OR with relative ease on Friday night, 74-54. While the Trojans won't end up with the high seed many thought they would nab coming into this campaign, USC is proud of what it has accomplished thus far in the face of adversity. Trojans head coach Andy Enfield said.

"I think he made a statement, for sure", Alkins said. "We played consistent and stuck to the game plan".

The Trojans found little momentum from deep, shooting just 26.3 percent from 3-point range and 45.3 percent from the floor. Despite a bad shooting night (5/12), Holiday managed to get 15 points.

"I love playing against great players; I've been doing it all my life", he said. "My teammates set me for the right shots".

At times, it looked as if their lead might wither. "It was a solid game in that department". With a strong run in the conference tournament, USC could very well have earned an at-large bid and could be an upset pick thanks to its ability to force turnovers and get scoring from all over the court. They took home one in 2009. "... 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".

But it won't be easy because the team standing in front of them is the Arizona Wildcats, the conference's regular-season champs.
