Much is expected of the Arizona Wildcats this season, so it may come as no surprise that they are sixth in the preseason Associated Press poll.

Sean Miller's team, which comes into the campaign with one of the nation's best recruiting classes along with key returners from last season, trails only Kentucky, Michigan State, Louisville and Kansas.

Arizona won its exhibition opener Monday night, knocking off Augustana 84-52. Duquesne transfer T.J. McConnell led the way with 12 points and eight assists, while Nick Johnson and Gabe York each chipped in 14 points.

Much-hyped freshman Aaron Gordon tallied seven points and five rebounds, while frontcourt mates Brandon Ashley and Kaleb Tarczewski combined for 20 points and 12 boards.

The Wildcats will begin their non-conference schedule on Friday, Nov. 8, when Cal Poly visits Tucson.
