Arizona’s Sean Miller praised a point guard Thursday night. It was not his own.
As he made a point to say after an 84-73 home loss to UCLA, there is a long line of Wildcats who can take the blame for the early cold shooting, the shoddy defense and undisciplined offense that contributed to the Bruins’ victory.
But point guard would seem to be a good place to start.
In a battle of senior transfers, UCLA’s Larry Drew had seven points, nine assists and two turnovers while Arizona’s Mark Lyons had 16 points, no assists and five turnovers.
The set-em-up Drew had a far superior night to the score-first Lyons.
“Their point guard played a great, great game,” Miller said.
