Bubble Watch - Arizona gets one win needs another

Arizona had no problem beating Oregon State in the first round of the PAC 10 Tournament winning 87 to 56. Five Arizona players scored in double figures in the win led by Jordan Hill's 16 points. Arizona set a tournament record for most points in a half scoring 59 in the first half of play. For Oregon State they finished the season winless in the PAC 10 and almost set the record for largest margin of loss in the PAC 10 tournament set by Oregon State against UCLA in 2006 with a 32 point loss.
In order for Arizona to extend there streak of NCAA Tournament appearances to 24 years they will need to beat Stanford in Thursday night's quarterfinals of the PAC 10 tournament. Arizona lost both regular season meetings to Stanford this year. Interim coach Kevin O'neill said this about the chances of an Arizona win "We're going to have to play great on the defensive end. If you finish second in this league this year, you're damn good."
