Las Vegas, Nevada- The Arizona mens basketball team defeated the number four ranked Michigan Wolverines in the Roman Main Event championship 80-62 at the T-Mobile arena.

Dalen Terry was the Wildcats most efficient player tonight where he scored 13 points on 6-7 shooting. He also added five rebounds and five assists while displaying his versatility helping the team in many ways.

Arizona went from turning the ball over 22 times against Wichita State on Friday night, to ending the game with just 10 turnovers in tonight’s game.

Christian Koloko had another very good performance even against tougher completion in Hunter Dickinson and Moussa Diabate.

Koloko had 22 points, seven rebounds, two assists and four blocks. He did so shooting the ball 6-11 from the field and perfect 6-6 from the free-throw line.

He now has 20 blocks through just five games.

The Wildcats held Michigan’s best player Dickinson to only 11 points and six rebounds on 4-10 shooting.

Michigan also couldn’t get anything going from deep, shooting 1-14 (7%) from there.

Arizona only shot 19 percent from deep tonight with only four shots made from there.

The Wildcats should see themselves inside the AP top 25 rankings in tomorrow’s latest update.

Arizona will face off against Sacramento State on Nov.27 at 4:30 P.M. MT.
