Olson: McClellan, Budinger must hit glass

Citizen Staff Writer

SEATTLE – Arizona coach Lute Olson hopes junior Jawann McClelland and freshman Chase Budinger step up their rebounding tonight against tall, physical Washington.

McClellan is averaging 4.7 rebounds a game but did not get a board in the last two games.

“Jawann is the guy who is tough enough and physical enough to hold his ground underneath,” Olson said. “He’ll have to rotate down on (UW forward Jon) Brockman. He has to battle.”

Budinger is averaging 5.5 rebounds a game, but Olson said the strong leaper “is still playing too upright near the basket and is getting moved around.”

“Sometimes you think you can get by with your jumping ability,” Olson said, “but it doesn’t do any good if you are being pushed out of bounds or behind the basket area.”

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
