The Southern Jaguars will play the Arizona Wildcats in a non-conference game on Monday night at the McKale Center in Tucson, Arizona. Southern has split their first two games, while Arizona is coming off of a great win against Duke. 

Southern Preview

The Southern Jaguars are 1-1 this season after they defeated UNLV by a score of 85-71 in their last game. Southern led 40-21 at the half and even though they allowed 50 points in the second half, they were able to escape with the win. The Jaguars shot 56.7% from the field and made 11 three pointers in the game. Southern lost to TCU by a score of 108-75 in their season opener. Southern is scoring 80 points per game with 29.5 rebounds per game and 16.5 assists per game, while giving up 89.5 points against per game this season. Tai’Reon Joseph is averaging 18.5 points, 3.0 rebounds, and 0.5 blocks per game for Southern this year. Southern is shooting 50.4% from the field, 56.5% on free throws, and 50% on three pointers so far this season.

Arizona Preview

The Arizona Wildcats are 2-0 this year after they defeated Duke by a score of 78-73 in their last game. Arizona led 41-33 at the half and they were able to hang on for the win, despite allowing 40 points in the second half. The Wildcats shot 46.2% from the field and out rebounded Duke by a total of 45-33 in the win. Arizona also defeated Morgan State by a score of 122-59 in their season opener. Arizona is scoring 100 points per game with 47 rebounds per game and 21.5 assists per game, while allowing 66 points against per game this season. Kylan Boswell has led the Wildcats with 15 points per game, 6.5 rebounds per game, and 3.0 assists per game. Arizona is shooting 51.1% from the field, 76% on free throws, and 40.9% on three pointers this year. 


Arizona is coming off of a massive road win against Duke in their last game and they will really need to focus to avoid a potential let down here. There is almost no chance that Arizona would lose this game, but they could come out slow after that big win. Southern is coming off of their own big win, as they were able to beat UNLV. The Jaguars allowed 108 points and lost by 33 points to TCU in their opener, but they bounced back with a great performance against UNLV. I think Arizona could very well come out slow in this game and Southern is a pretty solid scoring team. Take Southern with the points here.
