Arizona 72, Oregon State 61 -- notes, quotes and box score

Sitting here thinking how much fun round three between Washington and Arizona would have been in the Pac-12 tournament semifinals. Instead, the Oregon State Beavers simply ran out of gas in the loss.

OSU stormed to a 34-27 first half lead, shooting 40 percent from the field. But in the second half, Arizona ratcheted up the defensive pressure and got aggressive offensively.  The Wildcats played one of their best halves of the season, outscoring OSU 45-27 in the second half.

Kyle Fogg (above) continues his hot play, scoring 22 points for the Wildcats. It was his seventh 20-plus point game this season.

It will  be the seventh time that Arizona will play for the conference tourney title.
