GAME RECAP

After a cold start for both teams, the Spartans jumped out to a sizable lead midway through the first half, only to see that lead fall to just one with six to go in the period. Tom Izzo’s team never relinquished the lead, however. With 4:20 to go in the game, Jaren Jackson Jr. hit a pair of free throws to extend the Spartan’s lead to 72-54. After that, Bucknell’s comeback bid began. The Bisons scored 14 points in the last minute of the game, but it wasn’t enough.

PLAYER OF THE GAME

Miles Bridges led the Spartans to victory with 29 points on 12-22 shooting, 3-7 from free point land. He also added 2-4 from the line. In addition to scoring, Bridges had 9 rebounds, 4 assists, and a turnover.

Hey guys, my name’s Max Cohen. I’m a huge Arizona sports fan. I love the Wildcats, Diamondbacks, Cardinals, Phoenix Rising FC, and US Soccer. I also love Tottenham Hotspur and Borrusia Dortmund. I grew up playing baseball, basketball, and soccer, and hurting myself during all of them. I also play guitar. I love rock music. Some of my favorite bands are Bruce Springsteen, U2, The Beatles, Foo Fighters, and Dispatch. I’m a freshman at the University of Arizona. I’m majoring in a cool program that combines politics, philosophy, economics, and law. Talk to me about Arizona basketball and football because I never shut up about it.
