Arizona vs. Chico State score: Mark Lyons, Solomon Hill shine in 98-60 win

Stephen Dunn

The Wildcats were impressive in their final exhibition game. They now turn their focus to Sunday's home opener.

The Arizona Wildcats won their second and final exhibition game of the year on Tuesday night, defeating Chico State by a score of 98-60. UA moved out to a lead early and never looked back.

After struggling a bit in the preseason last year, it's hard to not get excited about just how much promise this group has showed in 80 minutes together on the court. It's a young team, but one with as much talent as any in the nation.

Mark Lyons led the team with 20 points and continued to do a solid job at the point. Solomon Hill imposed his will from the start and cruised to 18 points. Four players had six or more rebounds, including Hill and fellow senior Kevin Parrom.

It was a solid showing from the Wildcats in nearly every facet. Now coach Sean Miller will shift the team's focus to their season opener on Sunday afternoon against Charleston Southern. Tipoff from McKale Center is set for 4 p.m. MT.
