PG: Momo Jones (6-0, 196, So.) vs. Johnathan Loyd (5-8, 160, Fr.)
Loyd is the starter, but may not play much because he simply is not that effective. Loyd is shooting 29 percent from the field and Arizona should be able to take advantage of this match up.
SG: Kyle Fogg (6-3, 180, Jr.) vs. Garrett Sim (6-1, 181, Jr.)
Sim is a relatively one dimensional player and if Fogg was more consistent, he would definitely get the advantage here. However, he is not, and like always in the shooting guard matchup, you do not know what you will get.
SF: Solomon Hill (6-6, 226, So.) vs. E.J. Singler (6-6, 210, So.)
Singler is a solid player and one that would help a lot of teams because he tends to play smart. Hill, on the other hand, has not played a great game in a while and will likely have his work cut out for him.
PF: Jesse Perry (6-7, 210, Jr.) vs. Tyrone Nared (6-8, 210, Jr.)
Nared is not going to get a lot of minutes and rightfully so, as he is not very dangerous to the opponent. Perry has not been the greatest, but he gets the advantage here.
C: Derrick Williams (6-8, 241, So.) vs. Joevan Catron (6-6, 245, Sr.)
Catron is a very unappreciated player, but this could be Williams' final game at Mckale and you have to have a good feeling that he is going to make it memorable.
Benches: The Ducks have two decent guards and Malcolm Armstead moving to the bench helps, but there is still no size and the players the Ducks use just are not very good.
Coaches: Sean Miller vs. Dana Altman
Altman has done an admirable job, but Miller has locked up at least a share of the conference title in only his second year at Arizona.
Intangibles: the Wildcats are playing to go undefeated at home and win a conference title. Motivation will not be hard to come by.
Prediction: Hard to imagine Arizona losing this one for numerous reasons with the obvious being that the Wildcats are the better squad.
Arizona 82, Oregon 68
Breakdown: Arizona vs. Oregon
