Block party

Posted: Updated:
TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Arizona State point guard Jahii Carson got his points, 20 in a 91-68 loss Thursday night to #1 Arizona, but those buckets did not come easy.

Carson needed 19 shots from the floor and he had his shot blocked four times in the process as Sean Miller's crew used a five-to-the-ball concept with Carson off screens to make his shots hard to come by.

Guards Nick Johnson and T.J. McConnell had blocks against Carson as did center Kaleb Tarczewski who had two.

Johnson had the most dynamic of those blocks a second half swat from behind off the glass.

The junior shooting guard also became the 48th member of the Wildcats' 1000-point club. His 17 points gives him now 1,009 on his career and vaulted him past Wildcats' radio and Pac-12 Network analyst Matt Muehlebach on the career-scoring list.

The Wildcats (18-0) host Colorado (14-4) at McKale Center at 7 p.m. on Thursday night.
