Arizona Basketball: Pac-12 Tournament Primer with scenarios

Lonzo Ball, freshman standout guard for the UCLA Bruins, earned Freshman of the Year honors.

"It should have been unanimous".

BeaversEdge.com gives the latest insight inside Oregon State Baseball.

The Beavers head to Las Vegas for the Pac-12 men's basketball tournament with an opportunity to show that they've made progress their head coach has given them credit for in recent weeks.

"This year was a great year".

Yes, I said the Ducks have the cleanest resume, and they do. "But I think settling in and being more assertive in the second half and having a presence was the difference". "We had our battles". OR is never out of a game, as was indicated in another buzzer-beating win over Cal in which the team trailed by 16 points in the second half. He also finished in the top 14 in the Pac-12 by shooting 52.6 percent from the field and 41.6 percent on three-pointers. The Cardinal will finish their season on a four-game losing streak as they now look toward their first full offseason under Jerod Haase.

The Pac-12 is not the best conference in America right now. It was Oleka's 15th double-double of the season. He made game-winning three-pointers to beat Tennessee, UCLA and California.

"We went through quite a storm this year with a lot of curveballs thrown at us", Tinkle said.

Trump says he's open to legal path for unauthorized immigrants
True, Trump restrained himself from punching out a Democrat, and he didn't use phases like "American carnage". Even though the Senate is very partisan these days, Trump should be able to capitalize on one advantage.

UCLA has taken ownership of its offensive identity all season, but it remains to be seen how the contrarian philosophy will stand up in tournament play? That's kind of what bit us a little bit throughout the year. Coach Cuonzo Martin labeled his team's win as a "rusty" one, but he'll take it. He's the only player in the conference to place in the top-10 in the league in rebounding (10th, 7.9 RPG), steals (8th, 1.4) and blocks (4th, 2.1). Oleka's double-double was his 16th this season, most in school history since the Sun Devils joined the Pac-10 in 1978.

Stanford: The Cardinal had not been beaten three times in one season by the same opponent since the 1990-91 season when they lost three times to Tennessee. He also holds the career mark at.604.

Teammate Chris Boucher of Montreal was a second-team honourable mention and was named to the conference all-defensive team. Ball leads the Pac-12 with an average of 7.8 assists per game to go along with 14.9 points and 6.2 rebounds. The Cougars hit 17 of 30 shots in the half, including five of eight from 3-point range.

Heading up the scoring for OR this season are Dillon Brooks (16.0 PPG), Tyler Dorsey (12.4 PPG) and Chris Boucher (12.1 PPG; 6.2 RPG).

The Ducks (27-4) moved up one spot to No. 5 in the Associated Press poll, passing North Carolina. The Ducks edged the Sun Devils out by the slimmest of margins, 71-70, amid their one meeting of the 2016-17 season in February.

The son of Oregon State assistant coach Stephen Thompson and the younger brother of Beavers' guard Stephen Thompson Jr., incoming freshman Ethan Thompson is a four-star recruit from Bishop Montgomery High School in California, who is poised to be a huge addition to the Oregon State roster. OR is also 37-15 ATS in their last 52 versus the Pacific-12, and 64-31-3 ATS in their last 98 games following an ATS win.

No, UCLA does not need to win this weekend's Pac-12 tournament to reach the NCAA Tournament.

Though conference tournament results across the country could shake up the picture, the dominant line of thinking among bracketologists is that the Pac-12's top three teams - No. 5 OR (27-4, 16-2), No. 7 Arizona (27-4, 16-2) and UCLA - are battling Thursday in Las Vegas to secure the No. 2 seed in the NCAA Tournament's West Regional.
