LAS VEGAS — Ever since his woeful Utah team took a 12-2 lead over Arizona at McKale Center toward the end of the 2011-12 season, Utes coach Larry Krystkowiak has had a lot of hands to shake.
Larry Krystkowiak is looking for more than a consolation prize this time.

EUGENE, Ore. — All that stuff about Senior Day, fever-pitched fans and NCAA tournament aspirations was true of Oregon on Saturday.
By the time Dusan Ristic left Serbia after New Year’s, the 7-footer was so impressed with Arizona that he didn’t even want to talk to any other schools.
EUGENE, Ore. — Those crazy-good shooting games of recent weeks aside, the Arizona Wildcats didn’t build one of their best-ever regular seasons on a jump shot.
