Current Records: Utah Tech 1-2; Arizona 2-0

What to Know

The Utah Tech Trailblazers will hit the road for the second straight game as they head to McKale Memorial Center at 9 p.m. ET on Thursday. The #14 Arizona Wildcats will be strutting in after a victory while the Trailblazers will be stumbling in from a loss.

The contest between Utah Tech and the Washington Huskies on Monday was not a total blowout, but with Utah Tech falling 78-67 on the road, it was darn close to turning into one. Despite the defeat, Utah Tech got a solid performance out of Tanner Christensen, who had 26 points.

Meanwhile, Arizona didn't have too much trouble with the Southern Jaguars at home this past Friday as they won 95-78. Arizona got double-digit scores from four players: forward Azuolas Tubelis (17), guard Pelle Larsson (17), center Oumar Ballo (17), and guard Kerr Kriisa (14). That's Kerr Kriisa's first triple-double of the season.

Utah Tech's defeat took them down to 1-2 while Arizona's win pulled them up to 2-0. In Arizona's victory, Oumar Ballo had 17 points along with eight rebounds and five blocks and Kriisa dropped a triple-double on 14 points, 12 assists, and 11 boards. We'll see if the Trailblazers have a strategy for dealing with them or if they lead their team to another successful outing.
