If it's not one thing, it's another for Arizona it seems this season.
Less than two weeks after Rawle Alkins made his return to the floor after missing the first nine games of the season with a broken foot, the Wildcats had to watch leading scorer Allonzo Trier writhing in pain in an 83-53 win over North Dakota State on Monday night.
The play came with about 10 minutes to go in the game as Trier was looking to stick with North Dakota State guard Paul Miller when the two collided. The Arizona guard quickly hit the ground and grabbed his knee, bringing silence to McKale Center. Eventually, Trier was helped off the floor, and he returned a short time later with an ice bag on the injured knee.
Arizona head coach Sean Miller classified the injury as a bone bruise and Trier remains day-to-day because of it, but indications are that he will be able to play in Thursday night's meeting with Connecticut. << Read more
