Arizona Wildcat Basketball : my 2 cents for the PAC-12 and NCAA Tournaments

I hope the ‘real’ University of Arizona Wildcats basketball team shows up and that every player hits on all cylinders. Lonzo Trier didn’t show up in the Cal game and it really hurt. C’mon Cats… show us what you’ve got! Do not, I repeat do not EVER look at point spreads. Coaches included. Don’t look at social media or any media for the next month for krikey’s sake! Concentrate on what you do and don’t get distracted. Point spreads don’t mean crap, so don’t futz up your mind with them. You were supposed to beat Cal by 20 and look what happened. The final score was not indicative of your lousy effort for the first 35 minutes against a team with an RPI of 209. I am convinced that any Division I team can beat a top 25 team – and can do so on any given day. Look at Colorado tonight. They shot lights out against ASU. Wake up! Put the pedal to the metal for 40 minutes and play some defense for a change. All will be good if you put your heart into it. You can bet the Buffs will be coming at you full bore today. What have they got to lose? They are playing great basketball like there is no tomorrow. Attitude wins, men. Rise up. Go Cats!
