Morning Meltdown – Arizona Wildcats Edition


For this Morning Meltdown let’s take a look into some of the buzz surrounding the Arizona Wildcats especially their basketball roster and their Wild Wildcat of the Game.

After each Wildcat Football game we spotlight the Wild Wildcat of the Game. This week the feature was on Jared Tevis.

"“Coming off the back of a win against UNLV, the Wildcats had a new challenge when taking on UTSA. You can read the recap here. But we didn’t know that Jared Tevis would take over the defense the way he did last night.Jared Tevis stood out on the Arizona defense that allowed UTSA to rack up 349 yards of total offense. Jared Tevis led the Wildcats with 16 tackles and had the game’s lone interception, a pick that proved to ice the game for Arizona. Scooby Wright had 11 tackles, including one of Arizona’s three sacks on the night. Reggie Gilbert and Tellas Jones also came up with sacks in the contest.”"

Vince Senick of Zona Zealots examined, in-depth, the Arizona Wildcat basketball roster, and it’s definitely worth a read.

"“The Wildcats have the sixth ranked incoming freshman class, and the top incoming class in the Pac-12, according to Rivals 247. The class is led by the top small forward in the country, and the seventh ranked player in the ESPN Top 100, 5* Stanley Johnson. The forward is from powerhouse Mater Dei high school, in Fullerton, CA, where he earned a lot of accolades, both as an individual and as a team. He helped Mater Dei to a 135-5 record and four state championships in his career and was named California Mr. Basketball his senior year. Johnson averaged 35 ppg, 8 rpg, 2 apg, and 3 spg last season. He is a potential number one pick and will only be in Tucson for one season, but expect a huge impact in that one year.Also joining the Wildcats will be 4*forward, the number 37 incoming freshman according to ESPN, Craig Victor. He is a banger on the boards and could become the staple of this Arizona team the next few seasons. 4* guard, and the number 57 incoming freshman, is Parker Jackson-Cartwright. The 5’8″ true point guard will be a nice change of pace guard this season and will learn a lot backing up starting PG T.J. McConnell. Last but not least is the big Serbian, 3* center, Dusan Risic. Ristic will add some depth and will learn a lot from Kaleb Tarczewski this upcoming season.”"
