Notes and stats from Team Nike game

The Wildcats are now ready to play a real game. They cruised to an easy win over Team Nike and now want to prove they are for real. Here are game notes along with a full box score.

NEW STARTERS
Luke Walton returned to the lineup after missing the game against EA Sports with a sprained ankle. In addition, two other changes were made. Will Bynum started at the two-guard and Channing Frye started at center. Last week Hassan Adams and Isaiah Fox were in those positions.

OOPS!
Early in the first half Rick Anderson attempted a lob pass to Frye and instead threw the ball in the hoop for a three point shot.

HOT HAND
Anderson scored the first seven points for the Wildcats.

OOPS PART 2
Dennis Latimore had the play of the day, when the Nike player trying to inbounds the ball got flustered by the press. Latimore was guarding the baseline and the player had no one to pass to and tried to throw the ball off Latimore's shins to gain another five seconds. He fired the ball at Latimore, but the sophomore stole the ball and turned it into an uncontested dunk.

YOUTH GONE WILD
The three Wildcat seniors combined to shoot 18-of-24, while Andre Iguodala and Hassan Adams went 13-of-23. Iguodala had one less shot than Walton and Gardner combined.

TAKING CARE OF BUSINESS
The Cats had just 13 turnovers after committing 25 last week. They forced NIke into 26 turnovers.

HOT AND COLD
The Wildcats hit 5-of-8 first half three-pointers, but just 1-of-8 in the second half.
