With Arizona set to face Gonzaga, here is how we see the game breaking down.
PG: Nic Wise has his most difficult matchup of the season, because Jeremy Pargo is having a heck of a season. He rarely turns the ball over, averages seven assists and really makes this team go. Wise is going to have to play his best game of the season to be effective.
SG: Kyle Fogg is in trouble here because Matt Bouldin is going to take it to him. Bouldin leads the team in steals, thus Fogg is going to need to be careful when he has possession. If he can do the little things, Fogg has a chance to do well in stopping Bouldin. However, that is a big if.
SF: Micah Downs is a solid player, but he is no Chase Budinger. Budinger has been one of the top players in the country and should have a pretty big advantage here if Downs does not get hot behind the arc.
PF: Jamelle Horne has the length to matchup with Daye but the skill set is lacking. Daye is a very good player and one in which we feel UA should have tried harder in getting. He should make the Wildcats pay on Sunday.
C: Jordan Hill is going to need to get aggressive in the paint and we think he will. Heytvelt is good but he has not faced a player like Hill all season, and vice versa.
Prediction: Gonzaga 75, Arizona 71
