• Arizona Gets Back on Track 76-54 Over OSU

    If ever a team was in need of a convincing win, it was the Arizona Wildcats.

    Still reeling from Brandon Ashley’s season-ending injury, the Wildcats appeared far more confident in their second game without him. Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, a critical force as the sixth man all season, shone once again in this 76-54 victory with 16 points, five rebounds, and three assists.

    Aaron Gordon’s recent struggles from the field were not in evidence tonight. Gordon shot eight for twelve for 17 points and five rebounds. Nick Johnson and TJ McConnell put up respectable performances on the night, with ten points and eleven points, respectively, although Johnson’s three-point shot eluded him once again. McConnell had six assists on the night.

    Another bright spot of the game was the fact that Arizona head coach Sean Miller was able to try out different lineups and look deep into his bench. Jordin Mayes, whose playing time has been fairly limited on the season, proved himself in an arena in which the Wildcats have often struggled: the free-throw line. Mayes was six-for-six from the free-throw line for nine points overall.

    Arizona’s next game will be Friday, February 14, against ASU.

      Watching Mayes play well for the first time since probably last year was great. It'll be interesting to see how Miller alots minutes between Mayes and Pitts for the remainder of the season.

      This was a much needed win for the psyche of the team!!! Glad to see some guys contribute that we previously hadn't counted on.
