Red and Blue recap

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Arizona spent a few minutes before its Red-Blue game to honor its 1988 Final Four team, one of the most popular and successful teams in school history.

This year's Wildcats a long way to go to reach those lofty heights, but it appears they're going to be pretty good, too.

With the McKale Center full long before the opening tip and most of the 1988 team in the stands, Arizona flashed plenty of athleticism and versatility during its annual scrimmage on Sunday.

The Wildcats overcome some jittery opening moments to put on an impressive show, flying in for dunks, dropping in 3-pointers and whipping no-look passes.

Nick Johnson led all scorers with 20 points and Kevin Parrom had 17.
