Previewing Arizona

It’s counting down to the game that figures to go a long way toward determining the course of Washington’s season.
Some might argue that’s overstating the case just a bit. But an 0-3 start in this conference this season will be hard to overcome in terms of competing for the Pac-10 title. The good news is that after tonight, UW will have two of its four games against what right now look to be the two teams in the conference — UCLA and Arizona — out of the way.
Here’s some reading material on the game from Tucscon.
First, here’s a preview from the Arizona Republic (and the Tucson Citizen) stating that Arizona will try to become the first team this season to outrebound the Huskies, while the Huskies will try to cut down on their turnovers.
Arizona, as the story points out, was outrebounded 36-27 by Stanford last Saturday, and the Huskies, statistically, are a better rebounding team than the Cardinal. Arizona, however, spent a lot of the game putting its big men near the perimeter to try to draw Stanford’s big men out of the paint, something Arizona figures to try to do again tonight.
Here are some notes on the game from the Arizona Daily Star, including a look back at last season’s epic contest in Seattle.
And here’s an intersting story from the same paper on some of the players who have transferred out of Arizona in recent seasons in search of more playing time, similar to the situation the Huskies just faced with Harvey Perry.
