Hill looking for success in Washington

Solomon Hill has not had much success on the road against Washington. Read on to see how he believes that can change, why it is a hard place to play, and more.

Solomon Hill has not had much success at Washington in his career, but he heads there Thursday looking to change that.

"We look at it as one game at a time," Hill said. "I would love to get a win against Washington, but I can't look at it as just that I have not won up there, so let's go out and do it, because it won't be that easy."

In order to beat the Huskies on the road, Hill believes that there are numerous factors that will come into play on Thursday night.

"We have to commit to the game plan, stick to the practice, get those guys motivated and just do whatever coach tells us to do," Hill said.

Arizona has had success on the road so far this season and Hill believes that it should lead to increased confidence among the freshmen.

"It just boosts our confidence," he said. "It should let the young guys know that we always put together a good game plan for the road that is built for success and it also shows that the way we prepare and practice is serious."

Arizona has to play in numerous difficult spots in the Pac-12 but, as far as Hill is concerned, Washington is the toughest.

"Washington is always a hard place to play at," he said. "Coach Miller and I have not had success there in three years, so you have to put that as number one."

The main reason why Hill gives so much credit to Washington's home environment is because of the crowd that it presents each game.

"Just the way the gym is and the student section location," he said. "It is right behind you, basically on your shoulder every time and they are right there on the court."
