Player Grades: UA vs. ASU

Arizona had an impressive victory over Arizona State on Saturday. Read on to see's individual grades for the Wildcats.

Solomon Hill: The junior forward really helped set the tone of the game early and was pretty physical in the paint along with Jesse Perry. He was the best rebounder out on the floor, as he finished with 10 to go along with 11 points on 4 of 9 shooting.

Hill was on 3 of 6 from the charity stripe and has not shot well from deep this season but after being player of the week in the conference last week, Hill is continuing his strong play.

Grade: A

Jesse Perry: Perry established the physical presence for Arizona and was outplaying the big men from ASU. He is a tough player to guard for non-athletic big men and his 16 points on Saturday afternoon on 4 of 6 shooting was the efficiency that Arizona needed. Perry also grabbed seven rebounds and was pretty strong on the defensive end.

Grade: A

Nick Johnson: Once the forwards got Arizona going, the guards were going to have a chance to really open up the court with the fast break.

Of course Johnson was the player to cease the moment. The freshman was 3 of 5 from deep and 5 of 8 overall from the field for 14 points and really got the crowd going with an alley-oop dunk off of a pass from Josiah Turner. It was the game that he was looking forward to most and he didn't disappoint.

Grade: A

Josiah Turner: Turner has been playing better and the best stat of the game against ASU could possibly be his five steals. He played smart, opportunistic defense for the entire game and it translated into fast break opportunities for Arizona.

Turner is moving the offense better and is giving Arizona a better chance to win with him playing well. Turner had six points and two assists.

Grade: B+

Kyle Fogg: It was an up and down game for Fogg, who was 2 of 6 from the field with both makes coming from behind the arc, had four assists and really did some good things on defense.

But Fogg also had four turnovers and was in foul trouble early. He could not get into a consistent rhythm, but he played hard and finished with six points.

Grade: C+

Jordin Mayes: Mayes started off shaky with two turnovers, but soon settled down and knocked down a couple of three pointers in the game. After those two turnovers, Mayes dished out three assists and had two steals. Between him and Josiah, Arizona was in good shape from the point guard position.

Grade: B

Kevin Parrom: Parrom had a slight wrap on his right hand and it probably affected his shooting in the game. He was 3 of 7 from the field for seven points and missed his two opportunities from deep.

It was good to see him make the adjustment from playing on the perimeter to just go score inside, which he did pretty well and even got to the line. Parrom has some good weeks and some bad, but he just has to keep his head up and play hard.

Grade: C
