Post-game interviews are boring. The best reactions come after the microphones, Polo shirts and repetitive questions have all exited the locker room.
Tell us what you really think, Wildcats.
Arizona’s Derrick Williams might have won the conference’s player of the year honors, but you get the feeling he’d trade it with Isaiah Thomas, the man he edged out for the award, in exchange for a PAC-10 tournament title. Thomas stuck a game-winning, buzzer-beater to down the Wildcats 77-75 on Saturday night in Los Angeles. Washington earns the conference’s automatic bid into the NCAA tourney. Arizona will find out its post-season fate on Sunday when the field of 65 is announced.
WASHINGTON (23-10) 33 35 9 77

PTS: Derrick Williams 24
REB: Derrick Williams 11
AST: Kevin Parrom 3
PTS: Isaiah Thomas 28
REB: Darnell Gant 8

The (unofficial) Post-game Twitter Press Conference
The Arizona Wildcats are honoring a self-imposed “no Twitter” pact this weekend. Good for their concentration. Bad for those who rely on their post-game Tweets.
Luckily for us, the players are the only ones in Wildcat Nation staying silent.
