Top Ranked Against State Rival Down In ArizonaTheDuck
For only the second time in school history the Arizona Wildcats are ranked as the best team in the nation right now, at 17-0 they have taken out powerhouses with conviction and relative ease. Their state rivals, the Arizona State Sun Devils stand 6 th overall in the Pac-10 with a 13-4 record but they still pose a huge threat to the Wildcats as they are very familiar with their style and secrets. Arizona places it´s undefeated record on the line in this game knowing that they need to take this game as seriously as any other because the Sun Devils would love nothing more but pull off the upset of the season so far…
Arizona State has played hard this season, hustling for the loose balls and playing very unselfish basketball comparing to previous years, they understand that Arizona is coming into this game with everything to lose and the pressure is off them in this one. Pushing the ball up the floor and really attacking the rim seems like the best plan for the Sun Devils against a medium back court like the Wildcats have.
Arizona is on top of the NCAA college basketball world as they have gotten off to their best season yet with 17 straight wins and some of the best shooting in the country, the Wildcats cannot afford to get cocky in this game, they need to execute their plan and move the ball around looking for the open man on the perimeter. I think that it will be a close first half but Arizona will start to pull away in the second half and win this game by 9 or more.
