A Second Look: Red/Blue Game

The Red/Blue game was a debut for four new Wildcats, but was also a coming out party of sorts. Andre Iguodala had a spectacular game, leading both teams is scoring and rebounding. The big men were also solid, as all four Wildcat frontcourt players finished in double figures.

NO SHOW

Hassan Adams was held out of the game due to illness. Adams, who had been running temperatures as high 104 two days before, was in street clothes.<P>

WHO?

Team trainers Joe Williams and Nate Weigl were added to the roster to give the teams much needed depth. They didn't do much, playing seven minutes and pulling in a lone rebound.<P>

FIRST APPEARANCE

Four players made their McKale Center prime time debuts. Beau Muhlbach, Kirk Walters, Mustafa Shakur and Matt Brase are all new to the program. Muhlbach was the first player in the stat book when he committed a turnover in the game's opening seconds. Shakur led both teams with nine assists.<P>

DOH!

Jason Ranne had a break-away early in the first half, but missed the easy lay-up.<P>

PLAYER OF THE GAME

Andre Iguodala led all scorers and rebounders with 32 and 17 respectively. He also added five assists, a block and three steals.<P>

REFUSE TO LOSE

Dating back to the opening scrimmage of the season, Iguodala has yet to lose a scrimmage game.<P>

DOUBLE-DOUBLES

Three players had double-doubles. In addition to Iguodala, Channing Frye had 24 points and 15 rebounds, while Walters had 22 points and 10 rebounds.
