Sonoran Hot Reads: T.J. McConnell goes off for Sixers

He's certainly proving his worth

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

One guy that all Arizona Wildcats fans will keep an eye on in the NBA this year is T.J. McConnell, and he's not disappointing early on in the season.

He also said that he's surprised with the amount of playing time he's getting at this point in the season. Good for him though

- Jerryd Bayless also had a big night, making a career-high six three-pointers

Ryan wrote a great piece on Mark Tollefsen, and how he's going to be an important piece to the puzzle this year. A puzzle that's ranked 12th in the AP Preseason Poll. Possible two-time Arizona opponent Boise State is happy to be receiving votes in the poll
