Arizona struggles, Cal breezes in exhibitions

Arizona coach Sean Miller was not in a joking mood following last night 60-51 win over Division II Humboldt State. He said the No. 16-ranked Wildcats improved since last week’s stunning loss to Seattle Pacific, but admitted he still has concerns.
“We all recognize our starting point isn’t very high,” he said.
Miller said returning starters Jesse Perry, Kyle Fogg and Solomon Hill must carry the burden of leading the Wildcats.
Here’s the box score and video of the postgame press conference with Miller, Hill, Perry and Kyryl Natyazhko. Interesting to note the players had great respect for SPU and admitted they didn’t really scout the Falcons. Hill said SPU: “Ran they sets and they knew what they wanted to do.”
Washington plays SPU 7 p.m. Friday at Edmundson Pavilion.
Meanwhile No. 24 California easily knocked off Division II UC San Diego for a 88-53 victory last night. Newcomer Justin Cobbs, who is battling for the starting point guard spot and came off the bench, led the Golden Bears with 17 points. Allen Crabbe added 14 and backup Jeff Powers 12 and Harper Kamp 10.
WEDNESDAY MORNING LINKS:
— Here’s our story on freshman Tony Wroten Jr. who returned to practice Tuesday following minor knee surgery.
— Oregon plays two exhibitions before a difficult Nov. 11 season opener at No. 7 Vanderbilt. The first practice game is tonight at Matt Arena against Grand Canyon University.
E.J. Singler, Oregon’s leading returning scorer, is poised for breakout season. However, prized freshman Jabari Brown also looks to be one of the team’s early stars.
— UCLA newcomer David Wear is a natural power forward, but the 6-10 sophomore is looking forward to moving to the three where he’ll have to defend smaller, quicker players.
— USC 7-footer Dewayne Dedmon, who is recovering from a broken hand, is scheduled to make his debut for the Trojans in Nov. 11 season opener.
— Colorado coach Tad Boyle is committed to the Buffaloes.
