Basketball: UCLA tops Arizona

UCLA (14-17) advanced to Friday’s semifinal game — perhaps against Cal — with a 75-69 win over Arizona (16-15) in today’s first game.

Freshman Reeves Nelson scored 19 points for the Bruins and seniors Michael Roll and Nikola Dragovic each scored 18.

Nic Wise scored 16 points and Derrick Williams 14 for the Wildcats, whose 25-year run in the NCAA Tournament certainly is over.
