After Arizona State became the lone upset special in the quarterfinals of the Pac-12 Tournament — the Sun Devils knocked out 3-seed USC on Thursday — Friday’s semifinals took on a much different form. Instead of a potential of a potential all-L.A. matchup in the final, the winner of UCLA/Oregon and Arizona/Arizona State will meet on Saturday for the title.

Here’s a quick prediction on the Pac-12 Tournament semifinal matchups set for Friday.

Oregon vs. UCLA, 6 p.m. PT

The first time Oregon and UCLA met, way back on Dec. 4, the Bruins’ Amari Bailey put up 14 points for his 4th-consecutive game in double figures.

Now Bailey is coming off his biggest game of the season, a 26-point outburst vs. Colorado in the quarterfinals, and the Ducks’ top player — N’Faly Dante — may be limping. For the Bruins, who’ve had 1 game to adjust to the reality of playing without Jaylen Clark, now they might be catching the Ducks at the right time.

Much, of course, will come down to Jaime Jaquez for the Bruins, and he has been brilliant of late. With 18 points Thursday, he now has at least 17 points in 8 straight games.

Prediction: UCLA

Arizona State vs. Arizona, 8:30 p.m.

The last time Arizona and Arizona State met not too far back on Feb. 25, fireworks ensued. A game-winning half-court heave by Desmond Cambridge Jr. swished through the net and gave the Sun Devils a shocking victory.

It’s not going to go down like that a second time.

Lost in the excitement of one of the most thrilling finishes in the history of the floor version of the Territorial Cup was ASU’s terrific all-around game. The Sun Devils had 5 players in double-figure scoring and another player with 9 points. Arizona could not solve for the ASU offense, which finished with 23 assists, including 7 by DJ Horne.

I expect Tommy Lloyd to make major adjustments to close up the passing lanes this time around.

Prediction: Arizona
