The Arizona Wildcats and Mississippi State Bulldogs are locked in a good battle this evening from Madison Square Garden. WIth the 2K Sports Classic championship on the line, the Bulldogs lead by a score of 35-34.

Solomon Hill and Jesse Perry have led the way for Arizona. Hill leads UA with eight points and hauled in five rebounds, while Perry has seven and seven. Kyle Fogg has six points at the break and freshman Nick Johnson has hit two 3's.

Mississippi State was dominating early, but foul trouble has kept them from pulling away.
