Arizona forward Solomon Hill played high basketball at Los Angeles Fairfax High, originally committed to USC and will lead the Wildcats in Thursday's NCAA West Regional semifinal against Ohio State. Hill is averaging 13.3 points and 5.4 rebounds. On Wednesday, the senior attended a post-practice news conference at Staples Center wearing a gold jersey, which is awarded to the Arizona player who performs best in practice each week. Arizona Coach Sean Miller said it was "fitting" that Hill had the gold jersey in one of his final weeks, because he has been a role model throughout his career.

A day before LaQuinton Ross leaped, splayed his legs and downed Arizona with a decisive three-pointer Thursday, the 6-foot-8 Ohio State forward randomly won the locker-room lottery. He walked into the Lakers' locker room at Staples Center - his team's temporary digs in the NCAA tournament - and staked a claim to a corner locker that normally belongs to another clutch shooter. "I found out from one of the guys who worked here it was Kobe Bryant's locker," Ross said after the Buckeyes' 73-70 victory.

It was a vision former USC coach Tim Floyd had. To put Derrick Williams, Lamont Jones and Solomon Hill together and win an NCAA title. Then Floyd left the Trojans in the middle of a scandal involving the football program and basketball star O.J. Mayo, and Williams, Hill and Jones landed at Arizona. Williams became a national star with the Wildcats. Jones played two seasons in Tucson before transferring to Iona in order to be closer to his home in Harlem. Hill is still at Arizona and making life nice for Coach Sean Miller.

Update: If you factor in NCAA sanctions, Arizona hasn't won a game on the road at USC since the 2004-05 season. It did win at USC during the 2007-08 season, when Kevin O'Neill coached the Wildcats, but that win was later vacated because of NCAA penalties. Arizona is led by Los Angeles native Solomon Hill, a former USC commit, who is averaging 12.4 points and 8.1 rebounds.

Woodland Hills Taft (24-3) vs. Los Angeles Fairfax (25-3) at USC's Galen Center Today, 2 p.m. Why it matters: This City Section Division I semifinal is a rematch of last year's final won by Taft, 65-55, when point guard Larry Drew Jr. proved too much for the Lions. Drew is now a freshman at North Carolina, and Fairfax has the City's most dominant big man in 6-foot-11 Renardo Sidney, who will be playing in his first game at the Galen Center since announcing last week that he would attend USC. Taft's strength is in its guard play, with three-point specialist Michael Williams and Nevada Las Vegas-bound Justin Hawkins.

Ohio State's Thad Matta and Arizona's Sean Miller coached together at Miami, Ohio and Xavier. On Thursday, the good friends will square off in the NCAA West Regional semifinal at Staples Center. "I wouldn't be here today without him," Miller said. In 2007, Matta's Ohio State team came back to defeat Miller's Xavier team, 78-71, in an NCAA tournament second-round game. Ohio State went on to advance to the championship game, where it lost to Florida. "It worked out real well for one of us," Miller said, "and not very well for me. " Matta recalled the night Miller called him as he was trying to decide whether to leave Xavier and accept an offer from Arizona.

SAN FRANCISCO -- By the slimmest of margins, Arizona's men's basketball team was picked ahead of UCLA to win the 2012-13 Pac-12 Conference, according to a poll of media members that was announced Thursday. The Wildcats, with 15 first-place votes and 403 total points,  narrowly edged UCLA, which received 16 first-place votes and 402 points. California was picked to finish third; USC , coming off a 6-26 season, was picked to finish ninth in league play.  The Times does not vote in polls or for awards.

LAS VEGAS - Jordan Adams wasn't the only person being pushed through the MGM Grand casino in a wheelchair Saturday morning. He was just the youngest. The Bruins plowed ahead, marching in formation - Coach Ben Howland at point and Adams on the back end - past the slot machines and gaming tables on their way to practice. It captured the moment: Everything's a crapshoot from here on out. Adams' broken right foot is as much a game-changer as was his play in a 66-64 victory over Arizona on Friday.

Lost in the madness of UCLA's 66-64 victory over Arizona on Friday night in a Pac-12 Conference tournament semifinal game was a blown call that led to Wildcats Coach Sean Miller getting his first technical foul of the season. If you listened to the postgame news conference, though, Miller made sure you understood it was a missed call and that he really did nothing more than question the call. No cursing, no inappropriate comments, just a simple and loud declaration. "He touched the ball, he touched the ball, he touched the ball," Miller reiterated over and over in the news conference, which can be seen above.

LAS VEGAS - Jordan Adams, the UCLA freshman few talked about last summer, will be water cooler chatter this morning. The tone of the conversation will vary. There will be upbeat, did-you-see-that talk about Adams, who scored 11 points in the last six minutes to bring the Bruins from behind in a 66-64 victory over Arizona in a Pac-12 tournament semifinal Friday. There will be the downcast can-you-believe-it remorse about Adams, who broke his right foot on the game's last play and is lost for the season.

There are these times when J.T. Terrell makes a three-pointer smoothly in the rhythm of the offense, when Dewayne Dedmon slams down the basketball off a pass from Eric Wise, when Jio Fontan drives to the basket and makes the layup, when USC takes a 13-point lead on the 11th-ranked team in the country. And then there are other times, back-to-back-to-back turnovers, layups missed after sneaky steals, blown defensive assignments that let the opponent make three-pointers without a Trojan in sight, and USC almost gives away the lead.
