LAS VEGAS -- Utah played Arizona tough twice during the regular season, but the 4th ranked team in the country made sure it wasn't close in the postseason.

The Wildcats cruised to an easy 71-39 win over the Utes in the quarterfinals of the PAC 12 Tournament in Las Vegas.

The Wildcats took over in the first half, executing on offense and shutting down the Utes on defense. Utah scored just 13 points in the first half. Arizona held Utah’s top two scorers, Delon Wright and Jordan Loveridge, to a combined seven points.

The Utes fall to 21-11 and will likely get an invitation to play in the NIT.
