One thing that hasn't been discussed too much is how we match up against Zona. While they are a consensus top 10 team, they have lost three of their top six players from a year ago. In addition to NBA players Channing Frye and Salim Stoudamire, Arizona is missing Jawann McClellan. According to Athlon, this could be a big deal, as he was expected to start:
Jawann McClellan, a potential star, was pegged to be Arizona's starter at shooting guard, but was ruled academically ineligible for the first semester after failing a summer-school class. In '04-05, McClellan replaced Chris Rodgers as Arizona's sixth man in the NCAA tournament.
He only averaged 6 points a game last year, but he was pretty productive when he was in.
