The Arizona Wildcats won a controversial game Thursday night against Colorado after the refs screwed over the Buffaloes in the final seconds of regulation.Colorado’s Sabatino Chen appeared to have hit the game winning 3-point shot with .1 seconds remaining. However, after the refs reviewed the shot, they determined that it didn’t count.Here’s the reason the banked game-winning shot never counted for Chen (look at the clock behind the basket).To review: Light, irrelevant. Fact that they called it good, irrelevant. Clock on TV screen, irrelevant.Clock over backboard: decisive.— Seth Davis (@SethDavisHoops) January 4, 2013Arizona won the game in overtime, 92-82. The potential meaning of this game when March roles around, Arizona as a No.1 seed and Colorado fighting for a spot in the tournament, is frightening. Hope the NCAA committee remembers this play when all is said and done.[Video via @RobDauster] [Photo via @CorkGaines]

Pac-12 confirms call in UA's win; Boyle critical

PHOENIX -- Arizona and Colorado have developed a nice little rivalry in two short seasons together in the Pac-12.
