Weber State should be one of the easier games Arizona plays this season and here is a breakdown:
PG: Nic Wise has the size and skill advantage in this matchup. He should be able to be ore aggressive offensively, although there are enough mismatches where he may not need to be.
SG: Kyle Fogg is not going to have an easy game with Damian Lillard. Lillard is a strong shooter and can score in bunches, as he did against Southern Miss. If Fogg plays like he did against Kansas he should be fine. However, do not be surprised if Lillard gives him all he can handle.
SF: Zane Johnson should be put on Nick Hansen because he is not much of a scoring threat. These players are very similar, but Johnson has been put in the starting lineup for a reason and Arizona is one for one with the change.
PF: Chase Budinger is a mismatch for everybody in this game but he needs to step it up. We would not be surprised to see Russ Pennell try to use this game to get Budinger back in the swing of things.
C: Jordan Hill is rapidly climbing up the draft charts and many consider him to be one of the top three of four big men in the country. Who is going to stop him in this game? Absolutely nobody.
Prediction: Arizona 83, Weber State 58
