UCLA vs. Arizona State final score: Bruins overcome deficit, bounce Sun Devils from Pac-12 Tournament

Jeff Gross

After trailing by 12 in the second half, UCLA rallied to sink Arizona State in the final minute and advance to the third round of knock-out competition.

Arizona State remains on the bubble after failing to upset top-seeded UCLA in the second round of the Pac-12 Tournament. The Bruins overcame a 12-point second half deficit to grab the lead in the final minute, hanging on to win 80-75. Travis Wear scored six points in the final two minutes and Jonathan Gilling missed a game-tying 3-pointer with three seconds remaining to seal the win for UCLA.

Larry Drew II had 20 points for UCLA on 8-of-10 shooting, with standout Shabazz Muhammad chipping in 16. Jordan Bachynski and Jahii Carson both went over 20 for the Sun Devils with 22 and 21 points, respectively.

The Bruins have won six of their last seven, including two wins against the Sun Devils. ESPN's Joe Lunardi projects UCLA as six seed in the NCAA Tournament, but winning the Pac-12 could give them a higher ranking. Arizona State will be watching their televisions intently on Selection Sunday, hoping an at-large bid falls their way.
