No. 10 Arizona on a roll headed into break
Question of the Day
“You don’t really get holidays around here, especially when you’re playing,” Hill said. “It’s nice to enjoy (Thanksgiving) as a team _ we’re going to get together as a team _ but the goal is to win, so you can only take so many days off.”
It hasn’t been perfect.
Arizona has had trouble getting the ball into the low post consistently, particularly to the 7-foot Tarczewski, who is far more effective when has the ball around the rim.
Point guards Mark Lyons and Jordin Mayes have combined for 16 assists and 14 turnovers as they try to mesh with a roster that has several new players at key spots.
There also have been times when the Wildcats have fouled too much, particularly late in the shot clock, bailing out shooters at the last second after playing good defense to that point.
The biggest concern is defending the 3-point shot.
Charleston Southern spent most of the opener casting up 3-pointers, shooting 28 _ compared to 22 from inside the arc _ and making 10. Long Beach State also took more than half its shots from 3-point range, making 14 of 32.
Arizona had some trouble defending the 3 in exhibition games, too, and teams are hitting 39 percent of their shots from the arc so far.
“At this break, that’s a real big focus for us to be able to take away the three-point shot,” Miller said. “That’s one of the main things we’re going to try to get better at during this break.”
The Wildcats will have plenty of time to work on it before their next game, against Northern Arizona on Nov. 28, which is fine by their coach.
