Ristic draws first blood for Arizona with a pretty hook shot.
The crowd seems to have lots of energy so far tonight. We'll see how long that lasts.
SO. COOL. Arizona just honored the late former Wildcat Sean Rooks with him saying "This. Is. Arizona." in the pregame video. Remember his son, Kameron Rooks, is on Cal.
National anthem complete. Introductions happening now.
We'll have the national anthem here in a couple moments and then we'll be underway.
As always, Sean Miller is greeted by loud applause from the crowd as he comes out of the tunnel.
The Bears come out of the tunnel to a warm round of boos from the student section, as per usual.
Cats coming out of the tunnel. Just under 5 minutes until we get going!
Still have 10 and a half minutes left on the pregame countdown.
Of course since we're on an ESPN network tonight (ESPN2), we won't start right at 8.
