On Thursday, the Arizona Wildcats will play the Colorado Buffaloes at home.
The aim of the Arizona Wildcats is to bounce back from a disappointing defeat. Arizona started the season 8-0, but they haven’t been as strong since. They suffered losses to Purdue and a ranked FAU team in overtime. Arizona defeated California 100-81 in the conference opener, but they were unexpectedly trailing 13 points at the road versus Stanford on Sunday. Caleb Love is still playing brilliantly; he has scored a minimum of 22 points in 3 straight games. Among the top players within the conference is the senior guard. Love is averaging 17.4 points per game and 5 points per game. Defending Oumar Ballo is challenging. The seasoned striker poses a dual danger. He averages 13.2 points per game and 8.2 rebounds per game. He tallied 17 points during the victory over California. With the exception of three games this season, Pelle Larsson has shot not less than 50%. The veteran guard is scoring 12.1 points per game on average.
The Colorado Buffaloes are confident going into one of their toughest games of the year. Colorado’s six-game winning streak has been fueled by scoring. In order to start conference play, they defeated Washington 73-69 at home. On Sunday, they defeated Washington State 74-67 at home to move to 2-0 in the Pac-12. KJ Simpson is still unstoppable. The junior guard has averaged 21.1 points per game this season and has recorded a minimum of 20 points in 5 consecutive contests, including 34 on Sunday. Tristan Da Silva is doubtful for this game after missing out on it last month owing to an injury. With an average of 15.7 PPG and 5.4 RPG, the senior forward is an important contributor. Double digits have been scored by J’Vonne Hadley in 5 consecutive matches. With 54% of his shots, the senior guard’s season average has increased to 10.2 points per game.
