No time for losers

It's not over yet, but already the Pac-12 women have won the national basketball championship tournament. The final game, to be played tomorrow in San Antonio, is Stanford vs. Arizona. 

Stanford barely escaped with a win yesterday over fellow 1-seed South Carolina. South Carolina, down a single point as time was expiring, missed a driving bank shot and the ensuing tip-in. Both bounced off the rim. So close.

Later, 3-seed Arizona led 1-seed Connecticut wire to wire. UConn closed it to five points or so late in the game, but got no closer. The upset was led by Arizona senior guard Aarion McDonald (pictured above), who is one heck of a ballplayer.

Stanford and Arizona last played each other on February 22. Stanford won by 14 points.
