New look to Joe's No. 5 line

Trevon Duval, No. 5 in the ESPN 100, showed this afternoon why high-profile college programs want him to be their point guard. He had 12 points, 13 assists, and 16 rebounds in IMG Academy's win at the HoopHall Classic. The highlight came when he caught a long pass at half court and, in one motion, turned and tossed a perfect alley-oop pass to a teammate for an easy dunk. He will attend either Arizona, Baylor, Duke, Kansas, or Seton Hall.

Four-star junior Emmanuel Akot is a really talented offensive player. 6-foot-6, can make shots off the dribble, initiates and creates offense for others -- has a final four of Arizona, Oregon, Louisville and Utah.

Best I've seen Arizona signee Brandon Randolph play in a long time. Putting it on the floor a little bit, jumper falling from different levels -- mid-range pull-ups, spot-up 3s. Has been aggressive in the second half.

Assistants from Arizona and Arizona State have made appearances at the Hoophall Classic today. Arizona watched ESPN 60 Jahvon Quinerly.

Another statement by Lauri Markkanen and the Arizona Wildcats. With or without Allonzo Trier, they're ready to fight for the PAC-12 title.

Myron Medcalf ESPN Staff Writer 

Bobby Hurley deserved that technical. He was on the 3-point line arguing a call. Can't do that. But he has to be careful. The New Mexico Theory of Great Comebacks suggests this is not an insurmountable deficit. Has to remain composed.

If Arizona State can't score in a 3 on 1 fast break situation, they can go home at halftime.

Myron Medcalf ESPN Staff Writer 

If you didn't know about Lauri Markkanen before this, now you know. He's a gifted big man who will excel at the next level. Can step back and hit the 3 or score with ease in the paint. He's fluid. More people should be talking about Lauri Markkanen.

Myron Medcalf ESPN Staff Writer 

Sean Miller entered the year expecting to ride his perimeter stars to a Pac-12 title. Then, Allonzo Trier was sidelined. And Ray Smith suffered a career-ending injury. His switch to a reliance on big men Dusan Ristic and Lauri Markkanen changed everything and made him a national coach of the year contender.
