Arizona Bonus Package

The big story was a certain freshman: 10 of 11 from the line, 24 total points and 15 rebounds. We saw a lot of this yesterday from the big guy:

Give it to Love and good things happen, like this pass to Luc for a score:

Meanwhile, Collison was hot in the first half, at one point scoring five buckets without a miss like the following:

His biggest shot came in the second half to take the lead back that we wouldn't give up:

Seven of Love's ten free-throws would follow, as he accounted for nine of the last 14 points the Bruins would score. His layup plus the "and-1" free-throw stretched a tenuous 1-point lead to four with a little over three minutes to play.

The key defensive stop of the game followed by Luc's dunk put us up 67-61 with under 2:30 to play. This gave us just enough to escape with a victory, despite giving Arizona one more chance in the closing seconds.
