Wildcats steadily building momentum

No. 8 Arizona faces its biggest tests of the season over the

next week, against Clemson and No. 6 Florida.

The uptick in competition couldn’t have come at a better time

for Wildcats coach Sean Miller.

With a team that relies on freshmen at key positions, Miller

likes the idea of building up their confidence before throwing them

into the ring against heavyweights.

Arizona (6-0) certainly built up its confidence early, winning

its first five games by an average of 25 points.

The Wildcats faced their first bit of adversity against Southern

Miss on Tuesday, pulling out a 63-55 win at McKale Center after

committing a season-high 27 turnovers.

Miller hopes that game will be something his team can draw upon

when things get tougher later in the season.
