Wildcats are coming home

Posted: Updated:

LAS VEGAS (AP) - Jordan Adams scored 18 of his 24 points in the second half and No. 21 UCLA beat No. 18 Arizona for the third time this season, a 66-64 victory Friday night that sends the Bruins to the Pac-12 tournament championship game.

Ditching their new pajama-like uniforms for the more traditional white with blue and yellow trim, the Bruins (25-8) fought back from an 11-point second-half deficit after pulling off a similar rally against Arizona State in the quarterfinals. Adams triggered it, scoring 17 points in the final 9:57, including 13 straight in one stretch.

Kyle Anderson put UCLA in front on a putback with 22 seconds left and Arizona's Solomon Hill missed a midrange jumper, sending the Bruins into Saturday night's title game.

Brandon Ashley had 15 points and Mark Lyons added 13 for Arizona (25-7).
