There's still one way in which the Arizona Wildcats can grab a share of the Pac-12 title.

For that to happen:

-- Utah must beat Oregon at Salt Lake City (12:30 p.m., Pac-12 Networks).

-- Washington must beat UCLA (Noon, CBS)

-- And, of course, UA needs to beat ASU (2:30 p.m., Fox Sports Net).

That's the only way it happens, with four teams being 12-6 under that scenario. UA would still be the No. 4 seed but would at least be able to say it was a "co-champ" of sorts...


The Republic discussed what both UA and ASU need to prove today.

Jahii Carson says he isn't making an NBA decision yet. 

Our advance coverage today: A feature on UA's senior walk-ons, ASU sidebar, sidelines notes, breakdown of UA's Pac-12 Tournament seeding scenarios, a matchup graphic and a photo gallery of the seniors.

We also have an update on the Kevin Parrom shooting case at the end of the walk-on story and an Ooh Aah Man story.


The other key game for UA today is OSU at Colorado (also at 2:30 p.m., Pac-12 Networks) but that game only matters to the Wildcats if they lose to ASU. If UA loses to ASU, Colorado gets the 4 seed and first-round Pac-12 Tournament bye, but if CU loses, UA is No. 4 no matter what.


Also in the Pac-12 today: USC at WSU, 4:30 p.m. (Pac-12 Networks). 


The Ducks may need to win at Utah to make sure they get in the NCAA tournament (or at least do well next week). But Colorado should be feeling pretty good, despite Tad Boyle's bad memories of two years ago.


The Buffs say they hope to have Andre Roberson available for the Pac-12 Tournament, though there was an initial report that he had mono.


Lorenzo Romar has been quietly dealing with the death of his mother.


The body of Utah senior Cedric Martin has taken a toll.
