san diego vs. arizona

You never get a second chance to make a first impression. Too bad for Arizona, as the Wildcats did not play well, or as a team, tonight...Whoever cast a preseason number one vote for Lute Olson's club in the Associated Press poll should have their voting rights rescinded...Salim Stoudamire was awfully quiet tonight. A leader, he is not...Josh Pastner acts and looks a coach...Channing Frye should get more touches...Brice Vounang took full advantage of his fifteen minutes of fame...Hassan Adams needs to score for the Wildcats, but not because Arizona requires additional offensive production. Rather, Hassan's scoring will encourage and enable him to be the team leader, a role Arizona desperately needs to fill...Mohamed Tangara did not live up to expectations. But it is much too early to draw conclusions about the power forward's promise.

Also, I'll second Jay's comment in the response thread to my first post on tonight's game.

Frye is a beast and they just haven't been pushing the ball to him at all. Adams has been sluggish and uninterested. Stoudamire has been keeping his arms down at his sides -- posing instead of defending.

On the other hand, I'm very impressed with Radenovic's progress as a player and with Shakur's obvious excitement to be playing. Shakur, though, really needs to start grabbing players by the ear.
