Player of the Game

No, the Cats couldn't snap Michigan State's 49-game winning streak, and no, there weren't a whole lot of bright spots for this young Arizona team either, but the play of freshman center Channing Frye was, in fact, something to be impressed with.

The six-foot-ten freshman from Phoenix fouled out in limited minutes, but during the time he was on the floor he was a Loren Woods-like defensive presence.

Frye checked in as the Cats' sixth man, and within the first two minutes he was on the floor he racked up six blocks. Let me repeat that: he had six blocked shots in two minutes, including four straight on one sequence with MSU on offense.

Frye showed aggressiveness necessary to be successful in a game against Michigan State, but unfortunately at times he was too aggressive. Frye fouled out while successfully stuffing a Kevin Torbert dunk attempt (replays showed he made contact with his hip).

He finished with three points, three rebounds and six blocks in 10 minutes of action. The defensive presence he provided, however, was something Arizona fans can look forward to for the remainder of the season.

Channing Frye is the Performance Fitness Systems Player of the Game.
