Arizona’s scoring bursts not enough to beat UConn in NCAA tourney

ANAHEIM, Calif. — Derrick Williams and his Arizona teammates dunked their way to another big second-half run. This time, it wasn’t enough.

In a matchup of streaky shooting teams, the Wildcats couldn’t stay hot long enough to beat Connecticut, losing 65-63 in the West Regional final on Saturday.

It was a crushing end to fifth-seeded Arizona’s run that came just a year after the Wildcats’ streak of 25 consecutive NCAA tournament appearances ended.

Williams scored 20 points, making 9 of 12 free throws, and Jesse Perry added 14 points for the Wildcats (30-8), the Pac-10 regular season champions.
