At the beginning of the second half in Tempe on Thursday night, everything was coming apart for the Arizona Wildcats.
Even the cheerleaders.
One of the officials motioned towards the baseline and ejected an Arizona cheerleader. According to the ESPN broadcast, the cheerleader was heckling the refs.

You can make fun of it all you want, but it seemed to have turned the tide in the game. Arizona immediately regrouped and regained the lead shortly thereafter.
