Record: 23-6 (11-6 in Pac-12)
Key Wins: Southern Miss, Florida, Miami (FL), San Diego State, Colorado
The Arizona Wildcats were swept in LA this past weekend. They lost on Wednesday at USC, 89-78, and at UCLA on Saturday night, 74-69.
They have a good resume of wins, so this stretch will not affect them in receiving a bid to play in the NCAA Tournament. It only affected them in the Pac-12 regular-season title race.
For Arizona to earn a share of the conference title, Oregon would need to lose at both Colorado and Utah, UCLA would need to be swept by the Washington schools and Cal would need to lose to Stanford. Arizona, of course, would need to make sure they took care of business at home against in-rival Arizona State.
Chances of this scenario happening is very slim, but it still needs to be mentioned.
The Wildcats have been led by Mark Lyons, Solomon Hill and Nick Johnson this season.
Lyons is averaging 15.1 points per game and is shooting 84.8 percent from the free-throw line.
Hill is averaging 13.6 points and 5.6 rebounds per game and Johnson has been solid, averaging 11.4 points per game.
Arizona needs a win this Saturday to give themselves a confidence booster heading into the Pac-12 Tournament in Las Vegas next week. No matter what happens, though, they will be NCAA Tournament bound.
