The Wildcats bested the Bruins 79-75 in their first meeting of the season in January.
“This league was really good this year, very good,” UCLA coach Steve Alford said in an interview posted on the tournament website. “And you got the team that won it and the team that finished second. Now they’re battling in March for a conference tournament championship.”
Arizona coach Sean Miller said that he was pleased with the way his players opened up the offense against the normally stingy Colorado defense on Friday.
“We haven’t played better basketball at any time this year than we did in the final 20 minutes today,” Miller said.
Alford noted that his team will have to grab rebounds to limit second and third looks for the Wildcats.
“We’re going to have to do a very good job on the backboard,” Alford said of Saturday’s final. “Our guys are going to have to screen and cut on the highest level. It’s great preparation for us going into the NCAA tournament.”
On the other hand, he’s confident that the Bruins offense will keep producing in the final.
“We’ve never had a problem getting shots,” Alford said. “We play up-tempo. That’s the way we’ve played all year long. I think what’s really been a big key is we’ve got big defensive stops.”
Miller noted that his team has a huge advantage in that the court is more of a home for his team since Arizona fans have gathered in big numbers for the final.
“It’s like we’re playing in McKale (Center) right now,” Miller said.
