Arizona Wildcats social media reactions: Kerr gets first T as coach, Hill scores career-high

Steve Kerr may have that choir-boy look but he is intense. Remember, he got into a fist fight with Michael Jordan in practice. While at Arizona he angrily threw the ball back at former Oregon coach Don Monson after Monson zipped the ball at him with force during a 1988 game at McKale Center. That kind of competitor goes to the Final Four and wins five NBA titles.

NBA ref Joey Crawford wanted in on the Kerr-coaching phenomenon … right?

This does not come as a surprise with how Sean Elliott, Anthony Cook, Tom Tolbert and Craig McMillan relied on Kerr to set up their shots.

Solomon Hill’s name in a starting lineup after he hardly played as a rookie last year.

Kerr is already making history at Golden State

An interesting comparison of Hill and Paul George after their first five career starts. Both averaged 8.8 points but Hill has the rebounding edge (5.4 to 4.6) and shot slightly better from the field (45.5 to 42.5).

Hill’s career-high scoring production last night is only a start. Bound to get into 20-point range in some games soon.
