The Arizona Wildcats just can’t catch a break right now.

Not only were they without two key players against USC on Thursday, the Trojans had some unbelievable luck on their side. USC big man Onyeka Okongwu buried a 3/4-court shot to cap the first half and extend the lead to 26-21.

Even crazier is that Okongwu made the shot through contact. Dylan Smith got tangled up with Okongwu as he released the ball, causing him to tumble to the court:

So I guess if there is one thing going Arizona’s way, it’s that it wasn’t a four-point play.
