TUCSON, Ariz. The second-to-last act Solomon Hill made in McKale Center was his only mistake. It was a missed free throw.
Other than that, well, he was all but perfect. And although Arizona is still a work in-progress with a long five months ahead, it did look pretty good in its 98-60 win against Chico State in its final exhibition game before Sunday's season-opener against Charleston Southern.
Hill, Arizona's senior beacon, was one missed free throw away from having a near flawless night, going 2 for 2 from the floor and 13 for 14 from the free throw line.
As he pointed out he was a little "Derrick Williams-like" comparing his statistics to former UA star Williams, who often gathered his points from the line with some help from the floor.
"I hope he can continue with that," Arizona coach Sean Miller said, with a smile.
Hill will never be mistaken for Williams, UA's rock and All-American two years ago, but Hill will be almost as important.
