Recap


No. 25 UCLA 66, No. 18 Arizona 64: Jordan Adams scored 24 points and the top-seeded Bruins rallied from a double-digit second-half deficit for the second consecutive day to advance to the Pac-12 tournament finals in Las Vegas.

Shabazz Muhammad and Travis Wear finished with 11 points apiece and Kyle Anderson scored 10, the final two on a putback with 24 seconds remaining that held up as the game-winner for UCLA (25-8), which will play third-seeded Oregon in Saturday’s championship game.

Brandon Ashley scored 15 points off the bench to lead fourth-seeded Arizona (25-7), which lost all three meetings against UCLA this season. Mark Lyons added 13 points and Nick Johnson and Solomon Hill finished with 10 apiece for the Wildcats.

After rallying from a 15-point second-half deficit in their quarterfinal win against Arizona State, the Bruins faced an 11-point deficit with 10:24 remaining against Arizona. Adams scored 12 consecutive UCLA points - the last two on a jumper to make it 58-58 with 3:53 left.

Arizona freshman forward Grant Jerrett sank a 3-pointer with 57 seconds left to tie the score at 64, and Anderson then grabbed Adams' missed 3-pointer and laid it back in to give the Bruins their final lead. Hill had a good look at the basket with five seconds left but his jumper was off target.

GAME NOTEBOOK:  Arizona came in 21-0 this season when holding opponents to less than 70 points … The Bruins improved to 11-2 in games decided by five points or less this season. … UCLA senior point guard Larry Drew II scored a season-high 20 points in the quarterfinals, but went scoreless against the Wildcats, missing all five field-goal attempts.
