TEMPE \u2014 \u201cKing!\u201d a teammate shouts from across Tempe High School\u2019s crowded weight room.

My-King Johnson, an imposing figure even in a room full of football players, looks up mid-push-up, and responds to the summons to the coach\u2019s office. He glides across the room in seconds, then slides into a chair in coach Brian Walker\u2019s office. The chair stresses to contain his 6-foot-4-inch, 225-pound frame.

Johnson leans back, breathes and smiles. It\u2019s been a couple weeks since Johnson signed a national letter of intent to play at the University of Arizona, and he says he\u2019s \u201cstill excited to be a Wildcat.\u201d

The UA is happy to have him too \u2014 after all, the senior defensive end has the potential to make an impact on the team the moment he arrives. Johnson\u2019s physical ability and potential attracted attention and offers from college football\u2019s blue-blood programs. He verbally committed to UCLA before flipping to Arizona.

Johnson talks about football, family and his future.

Also this: He is set to become the first active openly gay scholarship player in major-college football history.

When Johnson told UA assistant Vince Amey about his sexuality while being recruited, the coach\u2019s reaction \u2014 \u201cWe want you to be a Wildcat\u201d \u2014 was exactly what he wanted to hear.

Now, the 17-year-old is an unintentional trailblazer.

\u201cI do feel like when I say that, it can put a target on my back,\u201d Johnson said about being open about his sexuality.

\u201cBut whatever.\u201d

An \u201cold soul\u201d

Nadette Lewis is ecstatic that her only son has a full-ride college scholarship.

\u201cWhere I grew up, I didn\u2019t have any kind of opportunities,\u201d she said. \u201cNobody told me about these things, and I grew up in the \u2019hood, where nobody went to school.\u201d

Lewis attended South Mountain High School in the mid-1990s. She put her athleticism to good use, playing both basketball and volleyball, all while navigating one of Phoenix\u2019s most gang-infested neighborhoods.

Less than two years into high school, her athletic career ended.

\u201cI was pregnant,\u201d Lewis said, \u201cso I didn\u2019t get to play too much sports.\u201d

At age 16, Lewis had her first of three daughters, Lonnie.

When Lewis had her son three years later, his father wanted to name him My-King. A few years later, they named his sister A-Queen. The youngest sibling is 10 years old and named Nadette.

Neither mom nor son say they know the reason for his unusual name. Johnson\u2019s father has been in and out of jail since his son was born. The two are not close.

Lewis juggled two, and sometimes three jobs to keep herself and her family afloat, she says, \u201cto make sure we weren\u2019t on welfare, that we weren\u2019t a statistic.\u201d

Two years ago, Lewis moved to Seattle. She gave her son the option of staying in Tempe with his grandmother as long as he kept his grades up and focused on his future. So Johnson carries a 3.8 GPA.

Johnson has always been smart and quick-witted; his mom calls him an \u201cold soul\u201d with a maturity beyond his years. Johnson played tuba in the Tempe High School band for two years, performing at halftime while wearing his football jersey and cleats. Johnson loves music \u2014 for a time, he considered quitting football to focus on his other passion.

Walker convinced him otherwise.

\u201cI knew athleticism was in his family, and he\u2019s got all the tools,\u201d Walker said. \u201cHe\u2019s always had a work ethic. You couple that, along with his frame, and the sky\u2019s the limit.\u201d

Coming out

Johnson was 12 years old when he came out to his friends and family.

He barely remembers how he did it, just that he recalled it being difficult. He called family and friends, and told others in person. He saved his mom for last.

Johnson told her during a trip to the grocery store.

Her response?

\u201cI love you for who you are as a person,\u201d Lewis told him. \u201cSexuality? It doesn\u2019t matter. \u2026 That\u2019s how I teach my children. Love who you are no matter what you are, or what you look like. You have to love yourself. If you love yourself first, then everybody else will respect that and have no choice but to love you.\u201d

Being gay, Johnson says, is simply a part of who he is.

\u201cI\u2019m a very honest person,\u201d he said. \u201cI just don\u2019t see how I could be living an honest, truthful life and have that in the background.\u201d

By the time Johnson arrived at Tempe and went out for the football team, he already knew most of his teammates from playing middle school football together.

And they knew him \u2014 Johnson was, and is, open about his sexuality.

Teammate and friend Alfonso Arispe calls Johnson\u2019s honesty \u201ccool.\u201d

\u201cI love how open he is,\u201d Arispe said. \u201cHe doesn\u2019t care because he\u2019s focused on what he\u2019s doing, and he\u2019s focused on himself. Clearly, it shouldn\u2019t affect anyone else, but no matter what, he doesn\u2019t care about that. It doesn\u2019t bother him one bit.\u201d

A welcoming coach

When Amey played college football and in the NFL, the idea of a teammate coming out of the closet was taboo.

That\u2019s starting to change. Esera Tuaolo came out in 2002 after an eight-year NFL career. Missouri\u2019s Michael Sam came out as he prepared for the 2014 NFL Draft. Arizona State offensive lineman Chip Sarafin, a walk-on, told his teammates he was gay later that year. Princeton\u2019s Mason Darrow did the same in 2015.

Those handful of names are it.

\u201cIt is going to, until many generations die off, it is still going to be a stereotype, that gay men are weak and can\u2019t play sports and can\u2019t play big, tough sports like football,\u201d said Cyd Zeigler, the co-founder of OutSports.com. \u201cEven with defensive ends like Esera Tuaolo and Michael Sam \u2014 big, strong, masculine men \u2014 coming out, we still have the stereotype. \u2026 (Johnson) will chip away at that, but that takes generations to go away.\u201d

Amey lights up when he talks about Johnson, mostly because he believes he can be an impact player. But the idea that Johnson will be a pioneer in being an openly gay athlete also has the coach \u201cpretty excited.\u201d

\u201cWhen I found out, I really couldn\u2019t sleep,\u201d Amey said. \u201cAnd it wasn\u2019t like I was uncomfortable with it. I was just like, all right, it\u2019s different, it\u2019s new. \u2026 I said, \u2018Look, you are who you are, I am who I am, and I\u2019m going to coach you the same way. I\u2019m going to treat you the same way. I\u2019m going to get on you the same way as everybody else. There\u2019s no difference. You do what you do.\u2019 I said, \u2018When the players find out, especially my room, I\u2019m going to tell (those) dudes: \u2018Look, you gotta have his back.\u2019\u201d

Amey\u2019s enthusiasm for Johnson joining the team isn\u2019t surprising. Arizona was the first college to offer Johnson a scholarship, and Amey \u2014 the former Arizona State standout turned Wildcats assistant \u2014 led the recruiting effort.

Amey gave Johnson his space when USC, UCLA, Oregon, Texas A&M, and Arizona State showed interest. But the UA coach let Johnson know that he was there for him.

Arizona reappeared after Johnson and UCLA parted ways just before signing day. He flipped to the Wildcats soon after.

The Wildcats need him. Johnson amassed 22 sacks as a junior, including 6\u00bd in one late-season game against Seton Catholic. He added 21\u00bd more sacks, 19 tackles for loss and three forced fumbles as a senior.

The scouting report on Johnson: he\u2019s big, he\u2019s strong, he\u2019s fast, he\u2019s physical. More than anything, though, it\u2019s his motor that sticks out. The kid never gives up on a play. His highlight reel is filled with plays where an offensive lineman brings him down, or shoves him to the side, and Johnson emerges to make a play.

Johnson\u2019s Tempe team traveled to Tucson in August for a game against Catalina Foothills. Tempe was defeated quite handily \u2014 final score: 35-7 \u2014 but the Falcons had trouble containing Johnson, who sacked the quarterback three times and hurried him twice.

That quarterback? Rhett Rodriguez, an Arizona signee and the son of UA coach Rich Rodriguez.

On one hit, Johnson sped around an overmatched defender and floored Rodriguez\u2019s blind side. The force of the hit knocked the ball out of Rodriguez\u2019s hands before he could throw it, and it took him a few seconds to stand up and gather himself for the next play.

\u201cI play football,\u201d Arispe said, \u201cbut he\u2019s a football player.\u201d

Johnson will fit in nicely on the Wildcats\u2019 revamped defense, Amey said. Amey likes to talk about the underdogs and overlooked athletes who fill his defensive line room.

\u201cIt\u2019s no different than (nose tackle) Parker Zellers: OK, he\u2019s only 5-10, 240, but he\u2019s a football player,\u201d Amey said. \u201cEverybody\u2019s got their own background. Who they are, what they are. \u2026 I\u2019m fine with it, and honestly I can\u2019t wait to get him here and get it going.\u201d

Amey has reason to be excited. Those kids of are a rarity. Rarer still are the ones that choose Arizona.

\u201cI can\u2019t wait to be like, \u2018Yeah, I got to coach the first openly gay kid to be an All-Pac-12 defensive end,\u2019 \u201d he said.

mother-and-son bond

It\u2019s Wednesday, and Johnson\u2019s track and field practice is starting. He finishes his workout and darts outside.

In Seattle, his mom is finishing up her shift as a nurse. As always, Lewis is thinking about her son and what his future holds.

Mother and son speak every day. She worries about him. She worries how he will be treated.

Lewis wondered how he would be welcomed in a high school football locker room. Tempe\u2019s players accepted Johnson, but that\u2019s no guarantee that things will be the same in college. Factor in opposing fans, message boards and the spotlight that comes with making history, and Johnson could face a hard road.

\u201cIt\u2019s hard enough being a black kid in America,\u201d Lewis says. \u201cThen I worry about him being a football jock, then I worry about him being gay because it\u2019s still not so accepted. Everybody perceives him as a dumb jock because he is a football star, which he\u2019s not, but then you\u2019re gay and a football player? That\u2019s not heard of yet, and maybe it\u2019s still not accepted in the football world.\u201d

The support Johnson has received doesn\u2019t surprise Zeigler, the co-founder of OutSports.com.

\u201cUnfortunately, we continue to talk about it in sports as if gay athletes should be afraid. We perpetuate that fear,\u201d he said. \u201cThe reality is, when LGBT athletes come out, it is the rare exception that it is not accepted by their teammates. So his experience, whether he came out at 12 or 20, it\u2019s going to be pretty much the same thing.\u201d

Johnson says he\u2019s ready for whatever comes.

When he was a baby, a doctor heard his name and his eyes widened.

\u201cThat\u2019s one hell of a name for a guy to have to live up to,\u201d the doctor told Lewis.

\u201cHe\u2019s done an excellent job living up to his name,\u201d his mother says.

Johnson is aware of the expectations his name carries.

\u201cMy name definitely motivates me,\u201d Johnson said.

\u201cWhen someone\u2019s looking down at a roster, or they\u2019re looking at a page, they\u2019re going to say \u2026 let me see what he\u2019s about.\u201d

Arizona will have a chance to make up plenty of ground in the Pac-12 Tournament. But this is what the Wildcats\u2019 loss to UCLA on Saturday means as of now:

\uf06e Oregon will likely be the Pac-12 Tournament\u2019s No. 1 seed regardless of whether UA wins at ASU on Saturday. The Ducks, who are tied with UA at 15-2, only have to play Oregon State and they hold the tiebreaker with Arizona because of their Feb. 4 win over the Wildcats in Eugene.

\uf06e That means the Wildcats could face UCLA in a 2-vs.-3 Pac-12 semifinal on Friday, March 10 (tipoff 9:30 p.m. on ESPN if you want to go ahead and make plans) in Las Vegas if seeds hold up.

Assuming Oregon wins at OSU, UA will be the No. 2 seed if it beats ASU or UCLA loses either of its home games to the Washington schools next weekend; UCLA will be the No. 2 seed if it sweeps and UA loses to ASU, because the teams would be tied at 15-3 and UCLA would get a tiebreaker edge because it owns a win over first-place Oregon.

\uf06e Oregon also holds an even bigger edge over UA for the right to stay in the West Region in the NCAA Tournament (while it is no longer a foregone conclusion that Gonzaga will be the No. 1 in the West after the Zags lost to BYU, that's irrelevant to the Pac-12 placement because only one of the top four Pac-12 teams can stay in the West).

The NCAA selection committee revealed on Feb. 11 that it ranked Oregon over Arizona, putting the Ducks in the West and UA in the Midwest, and that was when the Wildcats had a one-game lead over the Ducks.

\uf06e Arizona also cannot win the outright Pac-12 regular-season title by beating ASU if Oregon beats OSU, and it won\u2019t know what happens at Gill Coliseum until after it plays ASU (UA-ASU starts at 2 p.m. Saturday and the Oregon schools tipoff at 4 p.m.).

\uf06e UCLA may have pulled itself closer to being the second team placed in the NCAA Tournament out of the Pac-12, since it has now a comparable overall record with the Wildcats and a tie in head-to-head play with UA. That means the Wildcats could be sent even farther away for the second weekend (the first still will likely be in Salt Lake City because of the pod system). (In any case, UCLA looks like a legit Final Four contender).

\uf06e But, of course, all that could change if UA faces and beats UCLA in the semifinals of the Pac-12 Tournament\u2026

Speaking of which, UA coach Sean Miller is hoping to bring a different team to that game, if it happens:

\u201cI know the team that we lost to and they\u2019re a great team and just like when we went to Pauley Pavilion and beat them there, I\u2019m sure it was a tough moment for them,\u201d Miller said. \u201cBut they found a way to respond and I\u2019m sure in some ways they\u2019re probably better because it happened.

\u201cWe have to do the same thing. In two weeks, we could find ourselves in Las Vegas playing this very same team, and hopefully we\u2019ll be more ready.\u201d


UA\u2019s first three Pac-12 champions under Miller had four, three and two losses, but Miller said he was not surprised to find the Wildcats at 15-2 and still having Oregon right there with them.

Oregon was picked to win the Pac-12 in the conference\u2019s official media poll, Arizona was picked second and UCLA third, which is exactly how the Pac-2 Tournament seedings look now.

\u201cWe knew before the season started that Oregon was a 1 (NCAA Tournament) seed a year ago and they return a lot,\u201d Miller said. \u201cThe players they\u2019ve added in addition to who they\u2019ve returned are really good so I think you\u2019re looking at a one seed. And I\u2019m not sure if you\u2019re look at UCLA that they\u2019re not in the conversation for those types of seeds.

\u201cObviously our season speaks for itself. But it\u2019s up to us to put this behind us in some way and in the other ways to learn from it and a week from today to be better, healthy and ready to go and again we gave up 14 second shots, 11 in one half. We wouldn\u2019t be 26-4 if that\u2019s happened to us throughout the season.\u201d


Miller said the Wildcats can control their sense of perspective. Even with the loss to UCLA, they\u2019ve still only lost four games, all to teams ranked in the Top 25.

\u201cWhen you\u2019re in a situation like ours, when you\u2019re 26-4 and 15-2, there are a lot of great moments that we've had and every once in a while people can distract players on your team,\u201d Miller said. \u201cIt\u2019s `You need to play more minutes.\u2019 \u2018Coach doesn\u2019t know what he\u2019s doing.' Etcetera, etcetera.

\"I think my worry and any coach at this time when you enter March with a lot at stake is to keep our team on point, to make sure we have our circle and our locker room and we\u2019re focused like we\u2019ve been getting better, preparing for the next game and in moments like this you learn a lot about the character of your team, about the character of the families that you coach, you learn a lot about yourself as a coaching staff.\u201d


Miller and the two players UA presented for interviews, Parker Jackson-Cartwright and Allonzo Trier, expressed plenty of regard for Kadeem Allen, who played his last game at McKale (likely along with multiple others).

Miller: \u201cI certainly didn\u2019t want one game to take away from what I think is one of the greatest kids I\u2019ve ever coached and that\u2019s Kadeem. He comes from a really big family. He\u2019s struggled growing up. He found his way to a junior college and he decided to come to Arizona. Was national junior college player of the year, and we redshirted him. Never said a word. Grew and in my mind he\u2019s become a man out here in Tucson. He has two classes left to graduate. He\u2019s gonna be the first person in his family to graduate and he\u2019s one of the best defenders we\u2019ve ever had. Our team\u2019s leader, and heart and soul.

\u201cKadeem\u2019s one of my favorite players I\u2019ve ever coached. He\u2019s about one thing and that\u2019s team. He embodies so many qualities that all of us love about sports. Obviously I want him to see it through.\u201d

Trier: \u201cI told him I love him and thanked him for everything. His effort. His leadership. Everything. Everything he brings every day. The mistakes he covers up for us. Everything he brings to the team. We\u2019re all sorry we didn\u2019t get it done for him.\u201d

Jackson-Cartwright: \u201cHe means everything. He epitomizes the identity of our program and everything we do every day. He comes to work every day just working hard, sets the tone. We\u2019re not here 26-4 without his leadership and how hard he plays each day.\u201d

In nearly eight years since he took over the Arizona Wildcats, Sean Miller says, he\u2019s aimed to maintain traditions that former coach Lute Olson set.

But there was always one, he said after the UA lost 77-72 to UCLA on Saturday, that struck him a little bit risky.

\u201cI found it strange that we would do Senior Night after a game because Senior Night is a big deal,\u201d Miller said, \u201cand, man, what happens if you lose? And then I think it became obvious that that doesn\u2019t happen a lot around here.\u201d

It did, finally, on Saturday.

They lost for the first time on Senior Night under Miller after the Bruins turned 14 offensive rebounds into 20 second-chance points while zoning the Wildcat offense into stagnation, meaning senior guard Kadeem Allen and the Wildcats had to hold their emotions together after their 21-game homecourt winning streak was snapped and they were pushed back into a tie with Oregon atop the Pac-12 at 15-2.

What\u2019s more, the loss appeared to be painful, literally, for Allen. He was seen holding his dislocated right pinkie on his right (shooting) hand several times throughout the game \u2014 and was essentially forced into throwing up a wildly errant 3-point shot with eight seconds left that could have tied the game at 75.

The UA didn\u2019t make Allen available for comment after the game, but Miller said Allen\u2019s shot was hardly his fault as much as Arizona\u2019s inability to keep UCLA from getting second shot after second shot, especially in a second half when the Bruins overcame a four-point halftime deficit in part by collecting nine of their 14 offensive boards.

\u201cRight now he\u2019s playing on one hand and did the best he could,\u201d Miller said. \u201cObviously, he\u2019s a warrior but I think that\u2019s probably as disappointing as anything, that he wasn\u2019t able to be at full speed.\u201d

Allen, clearly, was not the guy the UA wanted to take a 3-pointer when it desperately had to. The Wildcats made just 5 of 18 from 3-point range during the game, after making 11 of 20 on Thursday against USC, and their first look was to Lauri Markkanen, even though the Finnish big man has been slumping from the perimeter in recent weeks.

But they also didn\u2019t have a timeout remaining to set up a firm play \u2014 since Miller had burned them while UCLA was leading by up to 11 points earlier in the half \u2014 so a little bit of winging it was necessary.

It didn\u2019t work.

\u201cI tried to make it a game by calling all the timeouts and getting to the finish line where we had a chance to win,\u201d Miller said. \u201cWhen you do that it\u2019s not always easy to get that last shot without a timeout but they played a zone and when you\u2019re playing against a zone, it\u2019s teamwork, it\u2019s ball movement, it\u2019s not something I can really call.

\u201cWe wanted to use a ball screen to throw it back to Lauri, and if he had a shot, fine. If not he\u2019d be making one more pass, but didn\u2019t work out and no question we didn\u2019t get a good look on the last play.\u201d

Miller said he could have thought of \u201c100\u201d other plays that made a lot more difference in UCLA being able to win besides UA\u2019s last shot. Most of those plays began with UCLA missing a shot, then a Bruin picking it up and putting it back in the basket \u2013 or dishing to a teammate who did.

Miller expressed that to a team in the postgame locker room that appeared to have realized it pretty well, too.

\u201cIt was 20-4 in second-chance points,\u201d guard Allonzo Trier said. \u201cThat was pretty much it.\u201d

Arizona scored just four second-chance points off just four offensive rebounds, and were outrebounded 35-28 overall.

That 16-point differential on second shots alone was more than enough to offset the fact that Trier pumped in a career-high 28 points and that UA kept the high-octane Bruins well under their usual season averages: UCLA shot 45.3 percent overall and just 30.8 percent from 3-point range.

But if you can pick up your misses and stuff them back in, shooting percentages don\u2019t mean so much. The thought of it drove Miller nuts.

\u201cThey were the bigger, stronger, tougher, more physical team,\u201d Miller said. \u201cYou give a team like UCLA 20 second-chance points? That\u2019s actually not one of their strengths on offense.

\u201cWe did a really good job in a lot of ways defending them but we did a poor job of rebounding across the board. (It was) our inability to get long rebounds, tough rebounds, (from) bigs and guards, and it\u2019s disappointing because in big games it always comes down to the things you do well, you better do \u2019em. If you play in a big game and your strengths don\u2019t show up, you\u2019re very, very vulnerable. One of our team\u2019s strengths is our ability to get stops and defensive rebounds.\u201d

The loss meant the UA went back into a first-place tie with Oregon at 15-2 in the Pac-12, after the Ducks beat Stanford earlier Saturday. Oregon holds the tiebreaker for the No. 1 seed in the Pac-12 tournament based on their Feb. 4 win over Arizona. Both schools have only games with their in-state rivals remaining.

Up 43-39 at halftime, Arizona went ahead by up to seven points early after halftime but UCLA\u2019s Thomas Welsh scored six unanswered points to give the Bruins a 54-53 lead with 12:52 left.

The Bruins then parlayed that into a 19-4 overall run that gave them a 67-57 lead with 6:47 left, when Miller called his final timeout. The Bruins had converted nine offensive rebounds into 17 second-chance points at that point, including a rebound basket from Holiday after Ball missed a 3-pointer.

UCLA corralled nine of its 14 offensive rebounds after halftime, knowing it needed another way to win.

\u201cIf there was an adjustment at halftime, it was just to challenge our guys on the backboard,\u201d UCLA coach Steve Alford said. \u201cWe didn\u2019t shoot the ball particularly well. Halftime was about knowing how much of a physical fight this was going to be. I think our guys showed a lot of toughness.\u201d

The other key factor that became clearer as the second half went on was UCLA\u2019s success with its 3-2 zone defense.

Miller said \u201cwe just didn\u2019t execute\u201d against the zone, and Alford\u2019s son, UCLA guard Bryce Alford, said it was a big difference in the second half.

\u201cI think we did a good job of making them stand in the zone,\u201d Bryce Alford said. \u201cWe were able to force them to take jumpers.\u201d

Including a final one by their senior that they didn\u2019t want him to take, at the end of Senior Night.

An Air Force pilot proposed to his girlfriend on midcourt at McKale Center early in the first half Saturday night. She said yes, and boy, did the ol\u2019 place light up.

After that, UCLA blew out all the candles.

You can cut through all the statistical hieroglyphics that pollute college basketball, and you can forget the percentages \u2014 I mean, Arizona actually shot better than the Bruins, 51 percent to 45 percent \u2014 but it came down to hustle and muscle.

\u201cThey were the bigger, stronger, tougher, more physical team going after the ball,\u201d said Arizona coach Sean Miller.

Over the last 40 years, nobody has ever accused a UCLA basketball team of winning a street fight, but on Saturday night at McKale, the Bruins were looking for trouble, and they came to the right place. They won 77-72, silencing the loudest crowd of the season, and it\u2019s astonishing that the Wildcats had a final shot to force overtime.

It was an airball, taken by senior Kadeem Allen, of all people. Allen\u2019s right pinky was broken so badly a week earlier that you wondered how he could even hold a spoon in that hand, let alone shoot a basketball accurately from 20 feet out.

About 10 minutes after Allen was saluted on Senior Night, he walked through a scrum of UCLA players and Los Angeles reporters en route to the training room, holding his right hand tenderly, accompanied by trainer Justin Kokoskie.

It wasn\u2019t certain if the pained expression on his face was from the finger or the Senior Night loss.

Both, probably.

In some seasons, you are rewarded by an act of the basketball gods, one that places that overtime-forcing shot in the hands of Salim Stoudamire or Steve Kerr. But on the most electric atmosphere at McKale Center in years, the ball rotated to Allen.

\u201cWe\u2019ve won seven in a row on great Senior Nights,\u201d Miller said. \u201cA number of times we cut down the nets, and we could\u2019ve tonight.\u201d

Instead, Miller was left to damage-control. Yes, the Wildcats can still share the Pac-12 title with Oregon by beating the Sun Devils . And yes, there\u2019s still March and the promise of another shot at UCLA and Oregon.

But, really, is that promising at all? The Ducks have all that veteran firepower, and now UCLA has a defense to go with the nation\u2019s highest-scoring offense.

If the Bruins\u2019 Thomas Welsh wasn\u2019t the best player on the court Saturday, it was Bryce Alford. And if it was neither Welsh nor Alford, it was Lonzo Ball or T.J. Leaf. Sometimes it seemed like it was five against one. Somehow, Arizona kept it close.

The Bruins won with defense, with an old 3-2 zone that stopped Arizona in its tracks.

\u201cPeople have been killing us on our defense all year,\u201d said Bruins guard Bryce Alford. \u201cBut any time you get (criticized) like that you work on it. I think we\u2019ve been pretty damn good.\u201d

When the game turned from a six-point Arizona lead to an 11-point UCLA lead, Arizona missed seven consecutive 3-point shots. At that time, it was 3 for 17 from 3-point distance (17 percent). The only game the Wildcats were worse from 3-point distance was 1 for 8 against Gonzaga.

\u201cI thought we did a good job of making them stand around (on offense),\u201d Alford said. \u201cIn the second half, it took some air out of the ball.\u201d

Four times during Alford\u2019s brief discussion with reporters, he mentioned his team\u2019s \u201cbasketball IQ\u201d and how smart the Bruins are.

Was it the X and O work of the UCLA coaches that limited Arizona guard Kobi Simmons to one point? He scored a game-high 20 at Pauley Pavilion last month. And was it a Steve Alford scheme that made it seem as if Lauri Markkanen had never seen a zone defense?

Markkanen scored 18 points at UCLA. On Saturday he scuffled, missing all three of his 3-point attempts, unable to get an open look when Arizona desperately needed one in the final 10 minutes. Only in losses to Gonzaga and Oregon had Markkanen gone 0 for 3 on 3-point shots.

In effect, UCLA beat Arizona at its own game. The Bruins set the second-half tempo and limited the Wildcats to just 29 possessions, five below Arizona\u2019s slowest-in-the-league pace. UCLA had a mere 66 possessions overall, its fewest in conference games.

\u201cIf you had told me we\u2019d hold them to 77 points, I\u2019d have signed up for it,\u201d said Miller.

Arizona is 70-2 at McKale Center over the last four years, but it\u2019s odd how the \u201c2\u201d seems to linger more than the \u201c70.\u201d You exit Senior Night sorrowful, unable to celebrate a 26-4 record.

Before 14,644 fans departed McKale, Miller grabbed the PA microphone and spoke solemnly.

\u201cI think UCLA has a chance to do some special things,\u201d he said. \u201cBut so do we.\u201d

But that\u2019s a story for another day. On Saturday, as the cleanup crew began its late-night job at McKale, the Wildcats were left among the debris.
