With about five minutes remaining in the first half, Arizona Wildcats center Dusan Ristic came up lame, and was immediately taken out of the game.
He returned for a short stint before halftime, but then Chance Comanche started the second half in place of Ristic.
According to Arizona, Ristic suffered a left ankle sprain.

The junior from Serbia has started every game for Arizona this year, and has only failed to reach double-figures in scoring just seven times prior to this contest. He is the team’s third-leading scorer, averaging 11.5 points per game. He is also second in rebounds, grabbing an average of six.
Arizona was also playing without Kadeem Allen on Thursday, who suffered a dislocated pinkie finger. This could leave Sean Miller and the Wildcats without two starters when they face the Washington Huskies on Saturday.
