Arizona must find balance

Derrick Williams is being asked to do too much and the UA is suffering because of it.

Make no mistake about it, Derrick Williams is the best player on Arizona by far.

In addition, he is playing like one of the top five players in America.

The problem with that is that the rest of the Wildcats seem to be buying into the hype a bit too much.

Often times, it seems that the team is relying on Williams way too much and if Williams struggles, the UA is going to pay like it did on Saturday.

Whether it is Kyle Fogg, Lamont Jones, or others, Arizona is going to need to see at least one player step up.

What we have learned at this point of the season is that teams are likely going to zone the Wildcats for the rest of the season.

The zone will allow defenses to collapse on Williams and force the rest of the team to shoot, something it has not done well so far.

If Arizona is not able to hit those jumpers, there are going to be a lot more games like the one on Saturday.

The key to success for Arizona for the rest of the season is quite simple: Another player is going to need to step up.
