Arizona dominates #4 Michigan from start to finish 80-62

If the Arizona Wildcats arent ranked on Monday, we riot.

The Wildcats formally announced themselves as a team to be reckoned with, rolling past No. 4 Michigan 80-62 on Sunday night in Las Vegas. The victory gave the UA (5-0) a signature early-season win as well as the championship of the Roman Main Event at T-Mobile Arena.

Christian Koloko set a career high with 22 points, completely outplaying Michigan preseason All-American Hunter Dickinson. The junior was 8 of 13 from the field, dunking...

That was a pretty good performance by Koloko. He definitely improved his FT touch and defense without fouling - though I would caution Michigan played a horrible game after the first 10-15 minutes. At least the rotations were much shorter this game. There was a lapse in judgement by Tommy in the middle of the 2nd half when Kier was playing instead of Kerr, but overall lucky to have taken the fighting spirit out of Michigan just enough by that point.

Still horrible 3pt shooting, but at least the FTs were reasonable and the turnovers were lower though close to the tipping point of unacceptable. Just lucky we caught a burnt out Michigan team.

Undefeated, Unscathed, and one game closer to a perfect season. Beardown.

That was awesome!

Most fun I've had watching the Cats since they beat #5 Florida at McKale in '12.

Congrats to the team and Coach Lloyd on his first win vs a top five team in only his 5th game as head coach. Haha, unbelievable.

Too early in the season to tell if Michigan is really a top ranked team but this is still a great win. Much different than getting beaten up in early season tournament. Really like how active and confident they are playing. Not losing all the 50-50 balls and got some chippyness to their game.

Feels like we havent seen this much individual player growth year over year in a long time. Whatever the final record turns out to be, it is starting out exciting.

That Florida game was the most incredible game I have ever SEEN, let alone have the honor to attend.

Great win. koloko was great, azulous an ben were also really good.
Kerr struggled shooting in both games but the offense  flows so much better  with him out there.  First time we have seen Lloyd' cut the the guys off the bench minutes.
