Solomon Hill already has been chosen Pac-12 player of the week twice this season, so he's not exactly coasting along. But the junior forward says Arizona's more experienced frontcourt players must play better -- and bigger -- if the team hopes to fulfill its potential.
Hill used the Wildcats' 65-58 loss at UCLA as a case in point. Arizona's guards hit just a combined 27 percent from the field, but Hill says it's up to him and his fellow big guys to make life easier for the club's youthful perimeter players.
"I feel like we put pressure on those guys every game," Hill told the Arizona Daily Star. "We expect the wings to play good every game, but we have to get an inside game, too. Once we get an inside game going, they can be more relaxed.
"If me and Jesse (Perry) would have initiated some low-post scoring, I think it would have been easier for the wings to play."
Hill and Perry combined for 29 points and 17 rebounds against UCLA, but they also had nine turnovers.
