Highlights: Arizona crushes Colorado to reach Pac-12 final


Nick JohnsonLAS VEGAS – Nick Johnson scored 16 points and Arizona’s suffocating defense did the rest as the Wildcats moved on to the Pac-12 title game with a 63-43 win over Colorado on Friday night.

Arizona held the Buffaloes to 29% shooting and the Wildcats also had seven steals and five blocked shots.

They’ll next face UCLA in a rematch of a heated semifinal at the tournament last year, which the Bruins won 66-64.

Wayne Larrivee and Bill Frieder called the action on WestwoodOne Sports.
