The highlights show the tenacity of Arizona point guard MoMo Jones, who hit several big shots in the 107-105 triple-overtime victory at Cal on Saturday.
Jones had 27 points and only one turnover in 39 minutes.
“It was just a true team win,” coach Sean Miller said on his postgame radio interview on KCUB 1290-AM. “A lot of resiliency through the game. Just individual players on our end just making incredible shots.”
Jones is the reigning Pac-10 Player of the Week, and he has been nominated for this week’s award by Arizona officials.
Jones averaged 21.0 points in the sweep at Stanford and Cal, connecting on 52.0 percent of his field goals (13 of 25) and 87.5 percent of his free throws (14 of 16). He had three assists and three steals.
Against Cal, he tied the game with a three-point play with 16.6 seconds left in regulation, tied the game with a 3-point shot with five seconds left in the second overtime and drove to the rim with 1:03 left in the third overtime for the go-ahead points.
