The fans at McKale Center will be treated to a game between the Grand Canyon Antelopes and the Arizona Wildcats when they take their seats on Wednesday.
ABOUT GRAND CANYON (5-4): DeWayne Russell is averaging 25.4 points for the Antelopes, second in the nation among Division I teams entering Tuesday, as well as 5.6 assists. The 5-11 point guard from Peoria, Ariz. scored 42 against No. 11 Louisville on Dec. 3, but is 11-for-39 from the floor in the last two games. Russell played in in one exhibition game in 2013 after transferring from Northern Arizona, forcing him to appeal to the NCAA to be eligible this season, and the appeal was eventually granted, though he had to sit out the first two games this fall.

ABOUT ARIZONA (8-2): Lauri Markkanen continues to lead the Wildcats in scoring (16.8) and rebounding (7.1), though Missouri may have established a blueprint on how to guard the 7-foot freshman from Finland. The Tigers were more physical with Markkanen than previous opponents, and he was held to season lows of eight points and six shot attempts before fouling out with 2:53 left. Grand Canyon will likely ask 6-6, 242-pound forward Keonta Vernon to guard Markkanen at the outset, though the six-inch height disadvantage may prove too much.

bovada-logo-top-book currently has the Wildcats listed as 16.5-point favorites versus the Antelopes, while the game’s total is sitting at 142.5 according to MyBookie-White logo -70x40.

Last time out for Arizona, they were a 79-60 winner as they battled Tigers on the road. They covered in the match as a -7-point favorite.

Grand Canyon was a 73-69 winner in its last match at home against Flames.

Arizona continues to be short-handed in the backcourt, but the No. 19 Wildcats have received solid support lately from 6-5 freshmen guards Rawle Alkins and Kobi Simmons heading into their game Wednesday night against visiting Grand Canyon. Alkins is coming off season highs of 19 points and nine rebounds in Saturday’s win against Missouri, his fourth straight game in double figures, and Simmons also scored a season-high 19 in the latest win.

Arizona’s starting point guard the first seven games, Parker Jackson-Cartwright, will miss another 7-8 weeks with a high ankle sprain, and shooting guard Allonzo Trier, who was expected to be the Wildcats’ top returning scorer this season, has yet to play as his eligibility remains in question. Alkins, a Brooklyn, N.Y. native, started out slow this season with three points in the season-opening win against then-No. 9 Michigan State, flashed a couple good performances against inferior opponents, and now is playing even better against good teams. Simmons has been more up-and-down, averaging 15 points through the first three games, then producing three points or less in two of the next five before delivering his best performance of the season against Missouri. Grand Canyon is coached by Dan Majerle, who spent a big chunk of his 14-year career with the Phoenix Suns and has ramped up the Antelopes’ nonconference schedule in his fourth season with the team, taking on ranked teams Duke, Louisville and now Arizona this season.
