Arizona Wildcats vs. Oregon Ducks Preview, TV Schedule, Start Time And More

The Arizona Wildcats need to continue to protect home court with Pac-12 play underway and they can earn a series sweep on Saturday with the Oregon Ducks coming to town. The Ducks, who are led by head coach Dana Altman, struggled at times against the short-handed Arizona St. Sun Devils on Thursday, but came away with the 67-58 win.

The Ducks are led offensively by senior guard Devoe Joseph, who averaged 15.3 points-per-game and has hit 43% of his shots from behind the arc. Junior forward E.J. Singler can create matchup problems with his athleticism and size and he will likely be matched up against Solomon Hill and Kevin Parrom for most of the game. Garrett Sim can also light it up from behind the arc, making 47% of his 3-pointers.

Interesting Stat: Joseph, Singler and Sim all shoot 84% or better from the free throw line. The rest of the team has combined to shoot 59%. If the game is close late, the UA knows who to avoid fouling.

The game will tipoff at 1:30 p.m. from the McKale Center in Tucson. The game will be televised throughout most of the country on CBS, although you'll have to check local listings. Expect a similar starting lineup of Josiah Turner, Nick Johnson, Kyle Fogg, Solomon Hill and Jesse Perry to begin the game.
