Gamethread: Washington State Cougars at Arizona Wildcats

Tonight we get to see Arizona's new Nike Hyper Elite Platinum jerseys attempt at showing they're serious about making the NCAA tournament.

If there was ever a lack of a sense of urgency, now is the time for the Wildcats to put enough pressure on themselves to make a statement. Against a hot Washington State team, that won't be easy.

Faisal Aden and Brock Motum each pose their own complications against Arizona's defense, and the Wildcats would likely be suited to slow this one down, take care of the ball, and expect a grind-it-out win in the friendly confines of McKale. Vets like Solomon Hill and Kyle Fogg have to lead the Wildcats to getting off to a fast start and in doing so getting the crowd rockin'.

Looks like WSU is rocking some grey road jerseys with red and white trim. For those of you who don't like the new jerseys that Arizona will wear on Feb. 25 against UCLA, here's your practice run at getting used to them.
