Oumar Ballo had his seventh double-double of the season while scoring 15 points to go along with 14 rebounds. Ballo looked more like his normal self in this game as he was dominant on defense and blocked two shots.

Kerr Kriisa totaled a double-double for the second time this season. He scored 13 points on 4-11 shooting from the field while assisting on 11 of his teammates’ baskets.

Arizona came out strong in this contest as they were winning by 18 points at halftime while making seven 3-pointers. The Wildcats out-rebounded the Beavers 43-31 overall in the game.
