McConell, Wright face off in Saturday showdown

Versus: T.J. McConnell & Delon Wright

No. 10 Arizona plays host No. 8 Utah on Saturday in the Pac-12's first matchup between top-10 teams in nearly seven years. Utah's Delon Wright scored 21 points on Thursday against Arizona State and looks to stay hot against the Wildcats.

"Last year we didn't do a good job winning on the road," Wright said. "So we're trying to have a new mentality this year."

Utah is trying to win its seventh game in a row overall and fourth consecutive Pac-12 game for the first time since Larry Krystkowiak took over as head coach of the program. But the Utah coach knows a win in Arizona won't be easy.

"We're going to have to be really good," he said.

Utah and Arizona tip-off at 7 p.m. ET on the Pac-12 Network.
