Williams lifts Arizona past Texas 70-69

Derrick Williams' three-point play with 9.6
seconds remaining lifted Arizona to a 70-69 win over Texas in the
third round of the NCAA tournament Sunday night.
The Wildcats (29-7) led by as many as 13 points in the first
half and were up for most of the game before J'Covan Brown's jumper
put the Longhorns ahead 69-67. Williams misfired on a game-tying
attempt with 14.5 seconds remaining, but Texas (28-8) was called
for a five-second violation on the inbound pass to give Arizona one
more chance.
Williams took advantage, slipping to the baseline on a
pick-and-roll and taking the pass from Kyle Fogg. His shot fell
through to tie the game, and his free throw put the Wildcats into
the regional semifinals for the first time since last year's
absence snapped a 25-year tournament streak.
Williams finished with 17 points.
