LAS VEGAS (AP) - Lauri Markkanen scored 20 points, Allonzo Trier added 19 and No. 7 Arizona pulled away in the second half for a 92-78 victory over Colorado on Thursday night in the Pac-12 Tournament quarterfinals.
Arizona (28-4) had a hard time shaking the Buffaloes in the first half before stretching the lead to 17 in the second.
The co-Pac-12 champions shot 56 percent, made 10 3-pointers and held nearly everyone except Derrick White in check on defense.
White finished with 31 points and Xavier Johnson had 20, but Colorado (19-14) had no answer when Arizona hit the gas in the second half.
