With Arizona Basketball expected to have a large break in their schedule, luckily, their January 25 game versus Washington has now been moved up to January 3.
Arizona Basketball has had a lot of schedule movement in the last week or so, and as the Wildcats were expected to have a large break following the postponements of the UCLA and USC game, naturally, there was an opportunity to move a game up. That is why the Cats will now play Washington on January 3.
If you have been paying attention in the last couple of weeks, Arizona’s game against Washington was originally scheduled to be played on Dec. 2 at home; however, due to COVID protocols within the Huskies program, that game was then rescheduled for Jan. 25.
Well, now because of more scheduling changes recently, their game against the Huskies has been rescheduled again as the school announced just days ago. Arizona will play Washington on Jan. 3, with tip-off set for 6:00 P.M.
All the recent scheduling changes are a bit challenging to follow but it at least keeps Arizona Basketball busy rather than giving them a long break.
We are entrenched in yet another exciting Arizona Basketball season, and the postponements to the UCLA and USC games would have given the Wildcats 17 days off between their games.
Now while giving student-athletes breaks during the holiday season is great; however, longer breaks have their disadvantages as well, as they can throw off a teams’ rhythm and momentum.
And with Arizona coming off a tough loss against No. 19 Tennessee on the road, it is good to see the Wildcats able to use the break to move up another game and get back to work quickly.
As it stands, Arizona is currently 11-1 (1-0) on the year and is tied for second in the Pac-12 Conference standings. Adversely, Washington is 5-5 (0-0) and fresh off a 16-point loss to Utah Valley on Dec. 21.
