Arizona leads at halftime

March 12, 2009 | 12:58 pm

Hill Arizona clawed out a 34-32 halftime lead over Arizona State at the Pacific 10 Conference tournament today, as Wildcats center Jordan Hill looked more the first-round NBA draft pick than the Sun Devils' James Harden.

Hill had 12 points at the half, showing a handful of quality post moves. Harden had eight points. Both are projected as first round picks in the NBA draft in June.

If Arizona holds on to win, the Wildcats will likely have enough of a resume to get an at-large bid into the NCAA tournament.
