2011 Pac-10 Basketball Tournament Championship Schedule: Washington Faces Arizona On CBS

The Washington Huskies looked cooked after stumbling to the finish line, and seemed to be in danger of falling even further in their NCAA tournament seeding entering the conference tourney. Yet here they are, a game away from winning their second straight Pac-10 tournament championship after edging out the Washington St. Cougars and avoiding their third straight loss to their cross-state rivals, and they lucked out by drawing the Oregon Ducks rather than the UCLA Bruins.

The Arizona Wildcats have been by far and away the strongest looking team all season in the Pac-10. Led by Pac-10 coach of the year Sean Miller and Pac-10 player of the year Derrick Williams, they've run their record to a league-best 27-6, muscling their way past the Oregon St. Beavers & the USC Trojans in the tournament to set themselves up for what promises to be an entertaining Saturday showdown with UW.

Arizona and Washington split their season series. The last meeting between these two in Tucson was a classic, with Arizona winning 87-86, the now-legendary block by Williams being the difference. That game helped Arizona clinched sole possession of the regular season title crown.
