Arizona Wildcats, Solomon Hill Knock Off Colorado Buffaloes

The Arizona Wildcats needed to avoid a letdown at home after knocking off two tough opponents on the road. While the game against the Colorado Buffaloes certainly was not pretty for all 40 minutes, the Wildcats executed well down the stretch and locked down CU on the defensive end of the court as they went on to win by a score of 71-57. The victory improved Arizona to 17-8 on the season, including a 8-4 mark in conference play.

Solomon Hill played one of his best game as a Wildcat, scoring 17 points and bringing down 14 rebounds. The junior forward also dished out four assists and only recorded one turnover. Kyle Fogg added 15 points and Jesse Perry had a big second half to end with 13 points and eight rebounds. Freshman guard Nick Johnson scored nine and brought down five rebounds.

Arizona turned the ball over just 10 times against the Buffaloes and dominated the glass, out-rebounding CU by a total of 43-31.

Andre Roberson led Colorado with 12 points and 11 rebounds. Carlon Brown had an inefficient 11 points, while Austin Dufault and Spencer Dinwiddie added 10 points each.

The Wildcats will need to recover quickly with yet another game less than 48 hours away. The struggling Utah Utes will make their way to McKale Center on Saturday afternoon, with tipoff coming at noon.
