Have to get ball inside against Belmont.Small frontline would love to dump down low to Zues or have Solo drive. Would love to get bigs going early.

I'd like the seniors to be the attackers. Parrom and Hill need to eat! I don't want us getting down early in the game because Zeus misses a few easy ones. Honestly, I'd rather see Jarrett in this one. We have all seen Zeus struggle against smaller teams and he isn't the shot blocker Grant is. Zeus will get his chance to thrive vs NM and Kirk if they reach the second game.
Zeus has been taken out of his game by smaller quicker guys mostly because he still brings the ball down when lobbed to which gives them a chance to strip the ball from him. He just needs to go in strong and dunk the ball.
It'll be interesting to see how Belmont defends the post (full front, 3/4 denial, what?), and whether they use a ton of zone against us if/when Arizona goes big. The good news is if any of the bigs are struggling, considering Belmont's height, we could easily slide Solomon Hill to the 4 as need me.
At a minimum, Arizona should be able to at least feed the post for some easy catches. If the bigs don't always shoot, or a pull an Angelo Chol and take 25 up fakes before throwing the ball to Sean Miller on the opposite bench, Arizona will be able to get the Belmont defense moving and chasing with some good out-in-out passing.

Speaking of blocking....CHOL...hard to block when you are assigned one person with switching. If we did ZONE...he'd be free to roam more underneath and get those blocks.
Of course he woould have to PLAY to do that. Chol would be faster then Ba and Zeus and GJ.
Switching is the exact opposite of being assigned to one person. Don't be surprised to see Chol play to match quickness.
Would send four to the boards? Seems like with Parrom in the mix, we could snag some early offensive rebounds and deliver an early knock out.
Limiting their possessions seems like the primary way to beat them. But, what do I know?
