Hello my fellow fan-chat friends! We've got about 10 minutes until we get underway, so let's get our final score predictions going. My guess: Arizona 87, Washington 73. I know, blowout alert. What is your final score prediction? Please share with the rest of us! Thanks for joining me, I'm glad to have you all here.
Spotted at McKale Center: Ray Smith is wearing glasses. Not sure if they're prescription or not, but he's got them on. Gotta do something while waiting for the game to start, am I right?
No changes in starters for Miller's squad. Kadeem, Kobi, Rawle, Lauri and Dusan.
