Arizona Vs. UConn: Jeremy Lamb Leads 10-0 Huskies Run, Puts UConn Up Seven

Just when Arizona looked to be gaining control, UConn grabbed it right back in this Elite Eight showdown. The Huskies responded to Arizona's 8-0 run with a 10-0 run of their own to take a 62-55 lead with 2:58 remaining in the game.

Derrick Williams hit two free throws to give Arizona a 55-52 lead and complete an 8-0 Wildcats run, but UConn responded. Jeremy Lamb hit a floater on the ensuing possession to finally stop the Wildcats' hot streak, and then hit a mid-range jumper from the corner to give UConn a 56-55 lead with 5:40 remaining.

After another Arizona miss, Kemba Walker finally took charge. Walker, who hadn't scored in a while, drove into the lane and hit a fadeaway jumper off the rim and in with a hand in his face. UConn then clamped down defensively and forced Williams into a deep three that he missed with the shot clock expiring, then got a huge putback by Alex Oriakhi after Jeremy Lamb had to fling a wild shot with the shot clock expiring. Lamb then completed the run by stealing a Williams pass and racing in for a dunk to give UConn the seven-point lead.
