Markkanen will take the tipoff, even though Ristic is technically the center.
The crowd is HYPED. For an exhibition game. Against College of Idaho. Yep, Tucson's a hoops town.
Now the Cats being introduced.
College of Idaho being introduced now.
Pregame hype video about to play. Tipoff shortly thereafter.
As per usual, we've got a late-arriving crowd here at McKale Center.
As always, Sean Miller gets a VERY loud ovation from the fans as he comes out of the tunnel.
Just a few more minutes to share your final score predictions!
TONIGHT'S STARTERS: Parker Jackson-Cartwright, Kadeem Allen, Rawle Alkins, Lauri Markkanen and Dusan Ristic.
Hello my fellow fan-chat friends! Welcome to another season of Arizona Wildcats basketball! IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: Allonzo Trier is wearing street clothes and will not play tonight. Now it's time to get our final score predictions going. My guess is a blowout: Arizona 91, College of Idaho 63. What do you all think the final score will be? Let me know. Glad to have you all here!
