Former Arizona standout Solomon Hill knows the drill. He knows the odds are stacked against him.
How stacked will be determined Thursday night when there will be 30 new NBA players ready to get to work with guaranteed contracts after becoming first-round draft choices. For the rest of the NBA hopefuls slipping into the second round -- or free agency -- there will be no guarantees...
LOS ANGELES Arizona senior forward Solomon Hill grew up a fan of players, not teams.
Hill, a native of Los Angeles, was never caught up in Lakers fandemonium like the majority of the city.

TUCSON, Ariz. It might be a common theme early in the basketball season: Arizona will climb Hill and enjoy the ride.
On Thursday night against I-10 rivals, Texas El Paso, it took awhile for Solomon Hill to get going, but when he did he was pretty good. And so went No. 12 Arizona, now 2-0 in the early season, after its cruise-control 72-51 victory at McKale Center.
But Hill admitted...
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...
