Arizona Wildcats basketball: How compromised is Colorado?

After Arizona beat ASU, Wildcats center Kaleb Tarczewski said UA "really" respects Colorado's game entering their game this Thursday at McKale Center.

Even without standout guard Spencer Dinwiddie.

"Obviously, they lost one of their great players," Tarczewski said. "But we’re going to look at it no differently. I’d say it’s a statement game for us."

The Buffs looked shaky after Dinwiddie tore his knee up last Saturday against Washington and also in a loss to UCLA on Thursday. But they managed to beat USC easily on Saturday. 


Maybe officials have largely slid back to the norm after implementing change earlier this season -- as Sean Miller says -- but some see early-game reminders of the tighter rules against defenses.


San Diego State took care of UNLV.


Cal beat WSU but Jabari Bird appeared visibly frustrated.


Stanford took advantage of its height against Washington.


Utah successfully stopped UCLA in part by limiting not Kyle Anderson, but those around him.


Oregon will face OSU in the only Pac-12 game today (6 p.m., ESPNU).
