Houston Baptist Huskies
It’s safe to say this won’t be a competitive game, nor a very fun way for Houston Baptist to tip-off its 2018-2019 basketball season. There’s money involved, though, Houston Baptist will be paid handsomely for traveling to Tuscon and being the first win of Arizona’s season.
It will be a homecoming of sorts for 6’10” senior center Edward Hardt, who is from Phoenix and went to high school in Glendale. He started his collegiate career at Mesa Community College before transferring to HBU, where he scored over five a game in about fifteen minutes as a junior last season.
Head Coach Ron Cottrell is one of the longest tenured in the country, this his twenty-seventh season. He and the program had its best season in the Southland Conference last season, finishing second at 12–6. This will be the Huskies fifth season in the conference after many years at the NAIA level.
The Arizona Wildcats will turn over a new leaf this season after the bitter end to last season’s immensely talented team that was upset in the first round by Buffalo in a pathetic showing.
DeAndre Ayton quickly declared for the NBA Draft following the loss and was the top overall pick, now playing for the Phoenix Suns. Allonzo Trier is also gone, along with point guard and leader Parker Jackson-Cartwright.
Sean Miller, who managed to survive last season’s scandal, will replace the lost scoring with a pair of Brandons: Williams and Randolph.
Williams is a 6’2″ freshman and Randolph and 6’6″ sophomore. Randolph had moments last season as a scorer but didn’t get the opportunities with the guys in front of him. He’ll flourish with they keys to the offense this year but won’t play in this game after getting hit for a one-game suspension for a DUI (that’s it?).
Chase Jeter, a Duke transfer, figures to be the starting center, if he can stay healthy. He’s been bothered by back problems ever since he got to college and his health will be vital to U of A’s success.
