The Arizona Wildcats basketball team got swept in Los Angeles and senior Mark Lyons was right in the middle of it for all the wrong reasons.
The point guard disparity in the two games was as obvious as Shabazz Muhammad’s college plans. Both Larry Drew II of UCLA and USC’s Jio Fontan ran circles around Lyons. The UA guard’s turnovers and lack of playmaking on the offensive end only widened the gap.
Sean Miller gambled on bringing in Lyons and it hasn’t paid off over the course of the season. But that doesn’t change the fact that it was the right move at the time.
