For the mass majority of the season, the Wildcats and the Bruins were the two best teams in the Pac-12. Neither had it easy on Thursday, as they were challenged by a pair of solid teams here in Sin City in the quarters. Arizona had the slightly easier route with a 79-69 win over the stingy Colorado Buffaloes, while UCLA had to fight back from down 15 points to take care of the Arizona State Sun Devils. It’s tough to beat a team three times in the same season, and UCLA is going to find that out on Friday night. The Wildcats are one of the most talented teams in the country, and they could be a horror to try to take out of March Madness starting next week. However, they really were terrible in two games against UCLA this season. The Bruins exerted a ton of energy to dispose of the Sun Devils, and part of the reason they were able to get the job done is because ASU had to expend so much energy the day before to beat Stanford. The tide will turn on Friday against UCLA, as Arizona marches on to the Pac-12 Final.
