Lauri Markkanen then hits a 3-pointer. UA leads 57-49. My prediction: Arizona goes on a big run here to make this one a blowout. We shall see, though.
Comanche hits one of his free throws to end UA's scoring drought.
Bakersfield receives a flagrant 1 foul for the previous play.
Refs reviewing previous play to see who (if anyone) was in the wrong for a flagrant foul. We shall see.

PJC back in the game. Huh?
Now Bakersfield within six of Arizona.
At the media timeout, Arizona leads 53-45 with 10:37 left to play.

Kobi at the point, Rawle at the 2, then Markkanen, Comanche and Ristic.
Looks like Arizona will now roll with Kobi Simmons at the point.

Keanu Pinder is already proving to be such an important part of this Arizona team. Rim protecter, great rebounder and can make buckets down low.
At the media timeout, Arizona leads 51-30 with 15:42 left to play. Alkins leads UA in scoring with 15 points. Markkanen has 14 points.
Rawle Alkins is ROLLING tonight from 3-point range. He's hit 4-5 from deep.
Kobi's 3-point shot reminds me of Stanley Johnson's 3-point shot. Both kinda line drives without much arc.
We're back underway here at McKale Center for the second half. Arizona leads 44-26.
