Throughout Thursday night’s game, Arizona struggled in areas and shined in others on their way to an 87-39 win. However, in the first moments of the game Arizona seemed to struggle to find a groove offensively going 2-for-7 from the field. To add on to a slow start, Arizona was being beaten on the glass up to that point and gave up seven offensive rebounds that created second chance opportunities for San Jose State.
Eventually, Arizona was able to get going on offense lead by Zeke Nnaji, who finished with 26-points and 11-rebounds. Nnaji wasn’t the only reason why the offense exploded after the slow start, Arizona got 32-points off the bench relieving pressure off the starting five.
Overall, Arizona did what they were supposed to do against San Jose State. When you look back, there are areas coach Sean Miller can point out that needs some improvements as the season goes along.
Here are the sights, sounds, and media reaction from Arizona’s 87-39 victory. Plus, post-game interviews from Ira Lee, Zeke Nnaji, and coach Miller.
