Holiday hoists UCLA into Pac-12 semis

Photos Of This College Basketball Star's Girlfriend Are Going Viral

The nationally ranked No.15/17 Wildcats are the top seed in the PAC-12 bracket and will face the victor of the Arizona State Sun Devils/Colorado Rams matchup at 2pm local time today in the quarter-final round at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. He showed no signs of fatigue beginning the game with 13 points in the first 12 minutes and driving to the basket for a two-handed dunk in the game's final minutes. Quite the set of accomplishments for a 19-year-old.

"McKinley's important to us, there is no doubt about that", Boyle said.

NOTES: UCLA G Aaron Holiday joins former Arizona point guards Jason Terry and Damon Stoudamire as conference players who have averaged at least 20 points and 5 assists per game since 1983-84.

In only their 2nd match up of the season, the Wildcats made sure the Bruins didn't beat them a second time.

USC: will play in the postseason, hoping it will be in the NCAA Tournament.

In the semifinals against OR on Friday night, USC had 20 turnovers. "We can't worry about that".

The crowd's treatment led to a 14-year boycott by the sisters, which Serena finally ended in 2015. "But I call this a trial run". Serena was already pregnant with daughter Alexis Olympia, who was born on 1 September, when she beat Venus 6-4 6-4 in Melbourne.

The Warhawks, ranked sixth in the bracket, faced the 11th seeded Arkansas State in a rematch of the regular season finale last week. In their one-and-only meeting last month, Arizona dominated the Trojans in what was a fast-paced game. The Wildcats won fairly easily, with a final score of 81-67. Junior forward Chimezie Metu was especially helpful in that regard with four first-half steals. Since then, Ayton has taken his game to a new level unmatched and unanswered.

It is defense, McLaughlin said, that will be the key.

"If you look at our body of work over the season, we're a second-place team in a major conference", Enfield said of their tournament chances. "If we could have gotten that thing within striking distance, I probably would have gone with him, but I certainly didn't want to risk him or his ankle for the sake of just putting him back in the game". Limiting UA to under 70 will likely be tough. "But we'd never want to take a turnover, but we don't want to maybe throw an alley-oop lob and make somebody feel like we're showboating". "Our motto is: play fast, smart and unselfish".

But our defense and rebounding was not good enough for us to rely on today to keep us in the game.

Neither team led by more than four points before Jackson-Cartwright hit a 3-pointer and dunks by Alkins and Ayton gave Arizona a 53-46 lead with 8:51 remaining.

It's a burden the potential NBA No. 1 pick relishes. He's a tremendous talent. "Again, for him to not to be in the finals of the Cousy Watch, I'm at a loss", Alford told the Pac-12 Network. "We're going to have our hands full". But all five starters scored in double figures for Arizona, which pulled out of a close game thanks in part to a technical foul on Colorado and an injury to Buffalo point guard McKinley Wright in the middle of the second half. For the first time all season, the entire Arizona squad defers to the freshman on offense.
