Huskies, Cats ready for drag race

Saturday’s game at Washington won’t be anything like Thursday’s contest at Washington State for UA.

A drag race compared to a snail’s pace. That’s how different the game against the first-place Huskies will be.

Typically, UA does well in drag races – when the scores go into the 80s or higher.

The winner in 15 of the last 17 meetings in the series between UA and UW has had to score at least 75 points.

Arizona has been able to win nine of those games. UW has long been a good matchup for UA.

UW senior Jon Brockman said he likes to play a fast game, as do most of his teammates. But he’s aware of how good UA is in up-tempo games. The Huskies lost 106-97 to Arizona last month.

“They’ll give anyone trouble,” Brockman said. “They’re a tough matchup for anyone just because of their unbelievable athleticism and ability to put points on the board. They can score on anyone. That’s what makes them so dangerous.”

UA interim coach Russ Pennell said he’s looking for his team to play hard and that “I’m not sure what the outcome will be, but I’d be surprised if we didn’t play well.”
