UCLA will play the winner of the Arizona-Colorado quarterfinal. UCLA beat Arizona twice and Colorado in their only meeting this season.
Arizona State, which had to win the Pac-12 tournament to advance to the NCAA tournament, took control in the first half with an early 20-10 run keyed by Carson and Bachynski, the focal points of the offense against a Bruins known more for its athleticism than its physicality.
Carson's 6-foot bank shot tied the game at seven to start run that included eight points from Bachynski, another driving bank shot by Carson and two 3-pointers from Jonathan Gilling, left open on the perimeter while the Bruins worried about the others.
The Sun Devils, who made 11-of-22 3-pointers against Stanford on Wednesday, stretched their lead to 11 at 37-26 after Evan Gordon made two threes and Gilling hit another on consecutive possessions.
Carson's two free throws gave ASU a 41-28 lead before Jordan Adams' three and Muhammad's follow at the buzzer made it 41-33 at half. Muhammad had four points on five field goal attempts in the first half.
Bachynksi had 14 points at half and Carson had 11.
