Player of the Game:
Solomon Hill – The senior played one of the best offensive halves he has played all season. In the first half, Hill scored eighteen points, giving his team an early lead. He hit six long balls in the half, tying an Arizona record for three-pointers in a half.
For most of the game, Arizona had a great overall performance. From the starting tip, there was really never a doubt that the Wildcats were in control of the game. Hill helped the team take over early and get a solid lead.
There were minor negatives in the game, specifically the foul trouble and Parrom's ejection. Arizona played a majority of the second half with three players in foul trouble. Brandon Ashley eventually fouled out of the game, but Kaleb Tarczewski and Lyons missed playing time in the second half that could have been critical in a closer game.
Parrom also missed almost the entire game after his incident with Lacy. He has been a crucial player in multiple games over the course of the season and if the game had been closer, his absence would have hurt the Wildcats.
"I hit my first two shots and every time I shot I thought I was going to make it," Hill said. "So when I got space, I let it go. Even when I missed, it felt good."
Sean Miller Quotable:
"To be able to move forward and get a win says a lot about our team," Miller said. "It says a lot about Solomon Hill. I believe he is one of the best players in college basketball."
