Friday's Oregon-Arizona showdown in the Pac-12 Tournament semifinals nearly featured one of the greatest collapses in the history of the league.
With two minutes remaining in No. 25 Cal's matchup with No. 18 Arizona, it looked like viewers were witnessing a young team coming into its own as a legitimate threat in the NCAA Tournament. Then McKale Magic took its hold.
To say Arizona had some question marks coming into the season would be an understatement. But that didn't stop the Wildcats from expecting more from themselves, and wanting to build their own legend at a school with plenty of them already.
After being swept in its yearly Los Angeles trip to UCLA and USC, Arizona's bad week just got worse. Freshman guard Allonzo Trier will miss 4-6 weeks with a broken hand that he suffered in the Wildcats' four-overtime loss to USC.

Sean Miller has his work cut out for him at Arizona this season, as the Wildcats have more questions than answers about where they are right now.
