Although Brielmaier was averaging only 1.5 points and 2.2 rebounds a game, he was the Wildcats' first big man off the bench and provided a physical player to compliment the more finesse Wildcats.
"There is no doubt that a guy like Jordan Hill will see more playing time," said assistant coach Josh Pastner. "Fendi (Onobun) and Mohamed (Tangera) have to be ready to go if they are called upon."
Hill played well against Washington State, logging 13 minutes and scoring four points and grabbing four rebounds in the loss to the Cougars.
"Jordan gave us some good minutes in the first half against Washington State," Pastner said.
Hill has played in 12 games, averaging 2.8 points and rebounds a game. Tangara has appeared in just seven games, while Onobun has played just six times this season.
