The Arizona Wildcats will be squaring off with the Washington Huskies in just a few hours with a huge chance to gain a game in the conference standings. It will be very tough for the UA to come away with the win, especially with a raucous atmosphere expected at Hec-Ed Pavilion, but it can be done assuming the entire shows up on Saturday.
One interesting aspect of the game will be the start time. Tipoff is set for noon from Seattle, which is 1 p.m. in Arizona. How will the college players respond to the early start? Arizona began their game last week against Utah at a similar time and they appeared to be sleep walking throughout most of the first half. That simply cannot happen this afternoon if they hope to win.
FOX Sports Net will be providing the national telecast. Most of you in the area can find the action on FSN Arizona with Steve Calabro and Marques Johnson calling the action. On the radio, 1290-AM The Source will provide the action as Brian Jeffries and Matt Muehlebach provide the play-by-play and color commentary.
This is a huge game for the Wildcats and will truly tell how far this team has come during their five-game winning streak.
