T.J. McConnell stripped the ball away from Winston Shepard near halfcourt, dove to retrieve it and alertly found Gabe York with a bounce pass from his back. York then left a pass for Nick Johnson, whose layup finally put him in the scoring column.

Johnson's second field goal less than a minute later was the dagger.

Johnson scored 15 of Arizona's final 16 points and the Wildcats advanced to the West Region Final following a 70-64 triumph over San Diego State on Thursday night.

The Pac-12 Player of the Year Johnson began 0-of-10 from the floor before his layup gave Arizona 56-51 lead with 2:46 left. After J.J. O'Brien made two foul shots, Johnson knocked down a right wing triple to extend the margin to 59-53 with 1:52 on the clock.

Johnson hit all 10 of his foul shots down the stretch to send top-seeded Arizona to its first Elite Eight since 2011.
