Arizona wins Pac-12 tournament behind Deandre Ayton's 32 points

The Arizona Wildcats won the Pac-12 title on Saturday behind forward Deandre Ayton's 32 points on 14-for-20 shooting. Ayton added 18 rebounds, 2 assists, and 1 block in the 75-61 win over the USC Trojans.

What It Means:

Ayton is a lock to be taken in the NBA draft lottery after this season, but first he'll see how far he can carry the Wildcats in the NCAA Tournament. After a dud in the first round of the Pac-12 tourney, Ayton finished off the win with back-to-back 32-point double-doubles on Friday and Saturday.

The Wildcats are the 19th ranked team in numberFire's power rankings. Our models project them to be a 5-seed in the tournament.
