TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - No. 8 Arizona faces its biggest tests of the season over the next week, against Clemson and No. 6 Florida.
The uptick in competition couldn't have come at a better time for Wildcats coach Sean Miller.
With a team that relies on freshmen at key positions, Miller likes the idea of building up their confidence before throwing them into the ring against heavyweights.
Arizona (6-0) certainly built up its confidence early, winning its first five games by an average of 25 points.
The Wildcats faced their first bit of adversity against Southern Miss on Tuesday, pulling out a 63-55 win at McKale Center after committing a season-high 27 turnovers.
Miller hopes that game will be something his team can draw upon when things get tougher later in the season.
