Behind Aaron Gordon’s 19 points and 15 rebounds, you can’t help but believe this Wildcat team is just starting to peak. He led five players in double figures. Every game, Aaron Gordon is getting more comfortable, displaying his talent.
Even with Nick Johnson having an off shooting night, Arizona didn’t miss a beat. Their quality players at every position stepped up big time.
Arizona has reverted back to their traditional lineup with Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and Gabe York coming off the bench. Both players combined for 20 of the 25 points by the replacements, and Hollis-Jefferson added three mesmerizing blocks to intimidate Stanford around the rim.
