Howland said he wasn't able to turn to the zone defense the way he did in Thursday's victory because the Wildcats presented a different threat and would have exploited that type of defense. "I thought that they're a much better offensive rebounding team than ASU and that really hurt us in the first half," Howland said. "We were man-to-man and still gave up 10 offensive rebounds. The worry is that they're going to hurt you worse on offensive rebounds so that's why we stayed in man."
