Arizona's exhibition game with Humboldt State tonight will be streamed for free on the Pac-12's website.

The school did not announce it would stream the game until today, and while the Pac-12 has the final say and rights to all electronic coverage, Pac-12 associate commissioner Duane Lindberg said the conference is willing to host games on its website if schools produce them and meet other protocol.

Lindberg said Tuesday that conference webcasting is still in the "beta testing" stage and UA, with its unusual demand for basketball exhibition webcasts, is in the middle of it.

The game is scheduled to be accessible via this link.

Nine ex-Wildcats made opening-day NBA rosters, with Mike Bibby and Gilbert Arenas having dropped off the list from last season.

Arizona has the ninth-most former players in the NBA of all colleges, which is a drop from recent years because of the relative lack of NBA players UA produced just before and during the transitional era between Lute Olson and Sean Miller. From the past seven UA teams, only Chase Budinger, Jordan Hill, Jerryd Bayless and Derrick Williams are on NBA rosters.

UA's NBA numbers may drop in future years before the upgraded talent that Miller has been recruiting begins to make an impact.

Don't know if this qualifies as motivation for Solomon Hill, but he didn't make the preseason list of candidates for the CLASS award given to the top senior in the nation in the areas of competition, classroom, community and character.
