The Arizona Wildcats have clinched at least a share of the Pac-10 crown as they defeated the Oregon State Beavers, 70-59. The Oregon Ducks will come into town next and the Wildcats will have an opportunity to win the conference title outright with a victory.
Here are WildcatAuthority.com's player grades for Arizona vs. Oregon State:
Derrick Williams: With the heavy wrap off of his right hand you could tell he wanted to assert himself early. Williams attacked the glass early and had a double-double in the first half. He finished with 15 points and 12 rebounds with six of them coming on the offensive side. Williams is trying to find his groove again and this was a good start with the post season approaching.
Lamont Jones: Against the zone, Arizona needed an aggressor to get into the lane and that player was Jones. He shot 6 of 11 from the field with most his makes coming in the paint. Jones finished with 17 points and also had three assists with two turnovers. Arizona is a better team when he is aggressive and under control.
Kyle Fogg: Fogg shot eight three pointers and made three on his way to a nine point night on 3 of 9 shooting. The shooting guard tried his best to find space in the zone and once he started knocking shots down he was able to become a distributor. To go along with his nine points he passed out a game high six assists.
Solomon Hill: After a rough weekend in L.A., Hill was able to get things going against the Beavers. He shot 4 of 9 from the field for 10 points and found a lot of soft parts in the middle of the zone, especially in the second half. Hill also had four rebounds and seemed to have a really good energy for much of the game.
Kevin Parrom: The stuff you love about Parrom: He gets a steal then does a nice spin move in transition to finish with a lay-up. But he does not quit there as he goes back on defense and takes a charge on Joe Burton. He is no doubt a Sean Miller type of player. Parrom finished with 10 points, two assists and a rebound.
Jesse Perry: One particular aspect that Perry did was play the middle of the zone well on offense. He is good at turning and facing against his defenders and just getting to the rim. Perry did just that, going 2 of 3 from the field for seven points but he also was able to find other players as well. On one play he found Parrom on the wing for a three as he had two assists as well.
