Well, it may only have been an exhibition game but for the first time, the 2009-2010 Arizona Wildcats basketball team took the floor at McKale Center against Division II Augustana and won easily 92-76 - officially ushering in the Sean Miller era.
Looking past the final score what was the most encouraging was the balanced offensive attack.
- Jamelle Horne led the team with 19 points and 10 rebounds
- Derrick Williams had 14 points
- Kevin Parrom had 12 points
- Nic Wise has 12 points and five assists with two steals in 19 minutes
Other highlights from the box score include 7 rebounds by Solomon Hill in 19 minutes, 8 points for Garland Judkins in 15 minutes, and 7 points and 6 rebounds for Kyryl Natyazhko.
Of course Miller is going to have to find time for everyone, including Kyle Fogg who apparently was home in California with an undisclosed reason (sickness I believe).
And now we are less than 10 days to tip-off!!!
