This is very likely going to get pre-empted by I believe the first volleyball match of the Pac 12 season. WSU is up 2-1 on Oregon, set 4 just starting. This could be over anywhere between the next 10-15 minutes, or an hour from now. All of the players are wearing masks. I wonder why volleyball is different than basketball?

Yep, gotta stream it to start. Volleyball is not done yet.

Hey @DefenseBB you better tune in, I hear Joan's unmistakable voice!

Aari is 17 points away from the 2000 point mark. Very good chance of getting it today.

edit--that's career, not just at Arizona

McDonald is also chasing the Pac 12 record for consecutive double figure scoring games. She's at 78, Plum had 83. Plum also had a 50 game streak, she has 2 of the top 5.

That wasn't bad, only a couple minutes late starting the TV coverage.

Well I didn't watch the other Pac 12 game in progress but this one is plenty ugly as well. 5-4 Utah almost midway thru Q1.

OMG. Arizona doesn't look like a top 50 team today. Absolutely putrid. I think they have as many airballs as made buckets. 11-8 Utes nearing end of Q1.

Yeaney trying to win this game without much help from her teammates. She has 11 of UA'S 21. Cats up 3 now. McDonald 2-9, and both of her buckets were right out of the gate.

Okay, now the Cats have stopped screwing around. 29-20 lead. Utah was hanging around by making some 3's, but they aren't hitting them now.

Good strategy by Utah, take out UA sparkplug Yeaney.

30-20 at the half. 13 for Yeaney and 10 for McDonald. Utes are led by 2 w/ 5 points? :oops:

Oh good, Yeaney is back on the floor to start Q3.

Cate Reese just hit the 1000 pt. mark for her career.

Wow, that was a pretty blowby for Aari. She's a blur.

I can't figure out Makurat's role w/ Utah. Sometimes she doesn't play at all, other games she gets decent minutes.

Brynna Maxwell is scoreless in 20 minutes, only 1 FGA. She's been fairly disappointing this season. A few big games, but too often almost invisible.

Cats stretch the lead back to 13.

They have the pieces, they shouldn't be this bad offensively. Just doesn't make sense.

Utah got about 8 chances on one possession, finally scored.

Just when it was on the verge of a blowout Utah got a couple buckets. 46-33 thru Q3. Cats should be up 20+. Out of nowhere started getting killed on the offensive glass.

Still nobody in double figures for Utah. Arizona has 2, but they both were there at the half.

Utah has 0 FTA. Arizona has 10. Not a lot of FTs for a fairly physical game by both teams.

Maxwell sat out most of Q3. Splashes a 3 to start Q4.

Aari jumped a passing lane and got a breakaway layup, then next trip beautiful dish for another gimme. 51-36 Cats.

Oops, another steal and easy hoop, lead to 17.
