    Gordon, No. 6 Arizona beat pesky Cal Poly 73-62

    Aaron Gordon was nursing a sore groin and, by his own admission, was a little nervous.

    Still, it was a strong debut for the highly touted freshman forward.

    Gordon scored 13 points, grabbed 10 rebounds and blocked four shots in his collegiate debut for No. 6 Arizona and the Wildcats opened their season with a 73-62 victory over pesky Cal Poly on Friday night.

    Aaron Gordon leads No. 6 Arizona's rout of Long Beach State

    Freshman Aaron Gordon had 14 points and 10 rebounds, Brandon Ashley added 16 points, and No. 6 Arizona used a dominating defense to roll over Long Beach State 91-57 on Monday night.

    Nick Johnson, Aaron Gordon help No. 6 Arizona by San Diego State

    No. 6 Arizona knew it was in for a tough game even if San Diego State wasn't ranked. The Wildcats were on the road.

"San Diego State has an incredible crowd and a fantastic home arena and a very-well coached team and a team that is used to winning."

    No. 4 Arizona edges Duke to win NIT Season Tip-Off

    It wasn't a marquee matchup of freshmen, although both of the young stars showed how bright their futures can be.

    Instead, No. 4 Arizona's 72-66 victory over No. 6 Duke on Friday night in the championship game of the NIT Season Tip-Off was a chance for two junior guards to take the spotlight.
