Social media reactions of Arizona Wildcats’ win over Cal Golden Bears


Rondae Hollis-Jefferson went to the locker room with more than 7 minutes remaining favoring his shoulder. He returned a few minutes later grinning on the bench.

Nick Johnson is not asking for too much.

T.J. McConnell was nearly flawless to start his last weekend as an Arizona player at McKale.

One national college basketball analyst believes McConnell should be a first-team All-American.

More national media respect.

Arizona also won its second consecutive regular-season title and 14th overall.

Arizona close to matching the pace of last year’s team that was ranked No. 1 for eight consecutive weeks.

Who could have predicted fans chanting “MVP” for T.J. McConnell and not Stanley Johnson or Rondae Hollis-Jefferson at the outset of the season?

That’s efficiency …

This shows Arizona’s depth and numerous ways the Wildcats can beat a team.

Arizona’s reserves outscored Cal’s bench 34-16. The Wildcats are 21-0 when their bench outscores the opponent’s reserves, 5-3 otherwise.

It’s rare that the ESPN commentators agree on anything. …
