Social media reactions of Arizona Wildcats Red-Blue Scrimmage


Imagine Ray Smith in February with his athleticism and control and by then, his experience.

Be interested to see how they play on same side of the ball.

All substance with little flash in other words.

Another impression of Tollefsen:

Site founder and award-winning sports journalist Javier Morales has published his first e-book, “The Highest Form of Living”, a fiction piece about a young man who overcomes a troubled upbringing without his lost father and wayward mother through basketball and hope. His hope is realized through the sport he loves. Basketball enables him to get past his fears. His experience on the court indirectly brings him closer to his parents in a unique, heartfelt way.

Not many others can match a foursome of Kaleb Tarczewski, Dusan Ristic, Ryan Anderson and Mark Tollefsen — three seniors and an experienced foreign player.

Kaleb Tarczewski missed the scrimmage to nurse an ankle injury while Gabe York finished with 10 points and three rebounds.

Stanley Johnson and Channing Frye were inducted into Arizona’s Ring of Honor.

The day stated with good news for Sean Miller and Co. as Finland power forward prospect Lauri Markkanen verbally committed to the program.

T.J. McConnell weighing in from Philadelphia

Tollefsen’s day included winning the dunk contest with an under-and-up maneuver between the legs for the slam.

Anderson shows his finishing skills.

Smith finished with two assists and eight points in 20 minutes

Justin Simon tallied two steals in 15 minutes.

The highest profile freshman recruit Allonzo Trier contributed nine points on 4-of-9 shooting. Amazed that he missed his two free-throw attempts. Such a pure shooter.

Game ended with 20 of the 35 field goals made included an assist. Important early in terms of team play, being on same page, etc.
