A dangerous game for sure for the No. 8 ranked team in America, as the Wildcats have to go on the road for the just the second time this year, clear across the country to fight it out with a Clemson team that rarely loses at home. Sure, the Tigers have been beaten this year by Purdue, a team that they very well could rue the loss to when push comes to shove, but they also have some real talent behind them with players like F Devin Booker (11.9 PPG, 7.6 RPG) and F KJ McDaniels (11.9 PPG, 5.1 RPG, 2.2 BPG). Check the status of F Milton Jennings before pulling the trigger on this one, because if he is out, there is a real void in the Clemson frontcourt. Jennings was suspended two games ago and was benched for the win over South Carolina earlier this week. The backcourt is going to be the real key for Arizona, though. G Mark Lyons was the perfect addition for this team, and he, G Kevin Parrom, and G Nick Johnson make up a very talented backcourt that is going to be tough to beat in the Pac-12. The talent just isn’t there for Clemson, especially if Jennings is out, to keep up with Arizona, and we expect to see a point spread small enough worth backing.
