Gamethread: UTEP visits Arizona

Spruce Derden-US PRESSWIRE

Tim Floyd brings his UTEP Miners into McKale Center on Thursday to test the No. 12 Arizona Wildcats.

Seriously, Tim Floyd is not a joke. Maybe you thought he was sort of a joke when Arizona was trying to hire him, but he's one of those guys that can and will turn a Conference USA team into a dangerous one -- especially for the young Wildcats.

The good thing is that Sean Miller can pull out his small-ball lineup and still have a solid amount of size to compete with the Miners if things get sketchy early on.

This'll be a solid test for Arizona this early in the season. You'd hope McKale doesn't get that sleepy, careless nervousness tonight if the Wildcats get down; that'd be bad for the outcome and also a bit ignorant. Because UTEP isn't a team to sleep on.
