Tyler Baker / The Daily Wildcat UA Wildcats win 71-54 against UC Irvine at McKale Center on November 19, 2014.

After trailing much of the game, No. 2 Arizona men’s basketball rallied to beat UC Irvine on Wednesday night at home.

Coming off of the bench, sophomore forward Rondae Hollis-Jefferson scored a game-high 19 points and had what ESPN called the dunk of the year, where he slam dunked the ball over 7-6 UCI sophomore center Mamadou Ndiaye.

The Wildcats now say Aloha to Maui, Hawaii as a 3-0 team.
