Arizona came out shooting and took control of the game early in a 94-62 win over Stanford. Here's a closer look at what happened:
Player of the Game:
Gabe York- The senior came up big for the Wildcats, firing on all cylinders throughout the blow out. York scored 32 points, hitting nine three pointers and tying the Arizona record for most triples in a game with Salim Stoudamire. He also played solid defense and came up with four assists and two rebounds in his last victory on Lute and Bobbi Olson Court.
* It only took eight minutes of game time for Arizona to completely put away Stanford. York hit a pull-up three ball in transition off a trailing pass from Parker Jackson-Cartwright for his third triple of the day. After a defensive stop, York found Mark Tollefsen in the corner for a three-pointer of his own and the Wildcats were off to a 23-8 start.
* Arizona picked up right where it left off in the first half coming out of the locker room. Three minutes into the second half, Allonzo Trier hit his first basket of the night, a three-pointer that put Arizona up 50-30. York followed with a three of his own and that was all she wrote for Stanford.
Stat of the Game:
18 - Arizona lit up the scoreboard in the win over Stanford and did it by catching fire beyond the arc. The Wildcats, led by York's nine triples, drained 18 deep balls over the course of the game. Arizona got three from Jacob Hazzard late in the game as the Wildcats broke the previous team record of 16 that were made against USC in 2002.
"I haven't been part of a game where the ball went in like that," Miller said. "It just felt like every shot that was going to go up from 3 was going in."
"It's been a long journey," York said. "So the fact that it got to end like this, I couldn't ask for anything better. It's something that kids dream about."null
