Arizona State and Oregon went into overtime in Friday night's Pac-12 men's basketball tournament semifinal game, but ESPN college basketball analyst Bill Walton couldn't wait that long to take a bathroom break.Since the break between the end of regulation and the start of overtime is not that long, ESPN play-by-play man Dave Pasch was left by himself for a few seconds at the overtime tip-off.
