Are the Arizona Wildcats on Upset Alert?

The Arizona Wildcats have gotten off to a great start in 2012-13 college basketball this year, by being ranked the No. 4 team in the country, with a record of 10-0. However, are the Wildcats on upset alert?

Arizona just got its biggest win of the season a couple of games ago against the Florida Gators. The Wildcats were pretty much dominated the entire game, but still managed to find a way to win in the final seconds of the game, thanks to a Mark Lyons layup with barely any time left. That was a huge victory for the Pac-12 and Arizona obviously, but this team better not take the Miami Hurricanes to lightly or they will wind up getting upset.

Miami is 8-1 on the season, with its biggest win coming against a ranked Michigan State Spartans team. Durand Scott is proving to be one of the best players in the ACC, averaging 16.3 points per game, 5.8 rebounds per game and 3.7 assists per game. However, there are four other Hurricanes averaging 10 or more points per contest this season.

This game will be played in Hawaii, so neither team will have home court advantage.

Mark Lyons leads this very young and talented team, with 13.3 points per game. Although Arizona is still undefeated on the season, it has been playing sloppy ball. However, the Wildcats have still been finding ways to win, which is really the only thing that matters.

Whether the case, Arizona and Miami will go head-to-head later on tonight, which features a game where any team can win.
