Bracket Watch / Bubble Watch - Stanford beats Arizona

11:30 PM ET, March 13, 2008, Staples Center, Los Angeles, CA
Stanford (25-6) beat Arizona 75 to 64 (19-14) in the quarterfinals of the PAC 10 Confernce Tournament. For Arizona the loss puts there streak of playing during March Madness 23 years in a row in big danger. Arizona had a losing record during conference play and if they sneak into the NCAA Tournament it will be due to the tough schedule they had to play this year. Stanford was led in the win by big man Brook Lopez who had 20 points and 15 rebounds. For Stanford the win gives them momentum going into the NCAA Tournament where they have to be a dark hoarse for a Final Four with the play of there big men. Stanford does not have a player under 6'-0" on the roster and in the game against Arizona controlled the offensive glass with a 21-8 rebounding margin. That sort of rebounding ability will be an aid in the tournament if there shooting fails them in a game.
