Elite Eight, UConn Vs. Arizona: Solomon Hill, Wildcats Creating Extra Chances With Offensive Rebounds

UConn has managed to regain some ground against Arizona on Saturday night's Elite Eight match-up. However, the Huskies are still having trouble getting their long-range shots to fall, and they're allowing the Wildcats to pull down too many offensive rebounds.

We aren't even nine minutes into the game yet, and Arizona has already pulled down eight offensive boards. UConn is allowing the Wildcats to get second and even third chances, which is a dangerous thing to give a team on a roll. So far, Derrick Williams leads his Wildcats with six points, and Solomon Hill has accounted for six rebounds, three offensive.

Kemba Walker, Connecticut's star, is leading his team with five points but has only drained one of his first six field goal attempts.
