Ashley not overlooking Colorado

Brandon Ashley knows better than to overlook Colorado. Read on to see why that is, what he thinks of his recent play, and more.

With the way Arizona has lost its three games this season, Brandon Ashley knows better than to overlook Colorado.

"It’s simple," Ashley said. "We have lost three games this year, all of them have been on the road.

"Each of them have been to teams where we shouldn’t have necessarily lost those games. It’s that simple. You just have to focus on every game."

When describing his individual play this season, Ashley would rather focus on what Arizona has done as a whole.

"I would say it has been kind of up and down," he said. "At the same time it is less about me and how I play and more about the total outcome of the team. If we are winning games, I am perfectly fine with that.

"If you play a bad game, you just have to move on to the next one and try to remain as optimistic as you can."

Still, Ashley has been just fine with the way he has played this season.

"I would say I am pretty comfortable with how I am playing," he said. "Obviously I did not play very well against UCLA, but there are going to be games like that.

"At the same time, I am happy with who I am, but there is always room for improvement."

One of the major areas for improvement is defensively and Ashley has been better in that area as of late.

"I think just focusing in on being a better defender and rebounder helps me out in terms of performing in other aspects of my game as well," he said.

Ashley is hoping that all carries over to what should be a difficult game at Colorado.

"You have a group of very talented coaches and a whole lot of very talented players," he said. "Everybody kind of knows each other and we all know how each other plays, so it makes every game that much more difficult."
