One of the most potent offensive players in the country, Adams is going to have to help carry the Bonnies if they want to win this tournament.
Colorado beat Arizona State 97-85 on Wednesday to improve to 7-0 in Pac-12 Tournament openers. "And then he wasn't there". "I have really been trying to embrace it and the adversity. Then he started circling back towards me, and (there was) miscommunication". It has given them time to recover, to refresh and study film before their Pac-12 Tournament appearance.
But Arizona State labored through the Pac-12 season to finish tied for eighth with Colorado, so a first-round tournament loss would make the Sun Devils sweat a little on Selection Sunday. Troy Brown rebounded the second miss and made one of two free throws with 6.8 seconds left to put OR ahead 64-62. His layup cut the lead to 67-66 with three seconds left.
The Buffs did exactly that, hitting nine free throws in the final two minutes to advance while handing ASU - once 12-0 and ranked No. 3 in the nation - its fifth loss in its last six games.
Again, this was deja vu.
"I wanted to play for the seniors, it's their last go-round". Unfortunately for ASU it could only cut five points off the deficit at the same time Colorado's offense temporarily went into hibernation.
The Pac Twelve Men's Basketball Tournament at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas gets underway with game one of the tourney at 1 o'clock.... "When we didn't execute anything, we looked really bad", OR coach Dana Altman said. They had great leadership, and they busted their butts every day, and they competed.
Tres Tinkle came down on someone's foot early and spent the rest of the game limping. Here another overtime game.
Thirteen seconds after Wooten sent back Malachi Flynn's layup at the rim - one that could've tied the game at 64-64 - the OR big man took another swipe at a WSU offering, spiking Milan Acquaah's reverse layup into the hardwood to preserve a two-point win in front of 10,458 fans who stayed up 15 minutes past 11 o'clock to watch a thrilling finish at T-Mobile Arena. CU also held a decisive 39-26 rebounding edge and had just seven turnovers, their fewest against a Pac-12 foe this season. But they had their second-worst shooting performance of the season, making just 40 percent of their shots.
Southern California had a chance to move itself away from the NCAA Tournament bubble in its regular-season finale against rival UCLA. Allonzo Trier lead the way with 23 points and eight rebounds.
Tinkle hit two more free throws with 2.5 seconds left and Crisp got a good look at a tying 3-pointer, but it caromed off the back of the rim.
In extra time, Nowell fouled out and was followed shortly by Dickerson. Drew Eubanks is the third double-digit scorer and Ethan Thompson is grabbing four rebounds. "I don't know if Bey had said anything or what exactly happened at that moment". It's a fast game, it's a physical game. To just go off David, I told David to try to get a quick two, and he went all the way.
