The Colgate Raiders and the Arizona Wildcats meet Saturday in college basketball action from McKale Center. Colgate beat Binghamton in their last game, which improved the Raiders to 4-3 overall. As for Arizona, they’re undefeated through six games so far. The Wildcats most recently dispatched Michigan State last Thursday. Let’s get into our Colgate vs Arizona prediction. 

Colgate Raiders 

The Raiders have had quite the choppy year so far, going 3-3 over their first six games. In those matchups, Colgate beat Brown, Gardner-Webb, and Weber State while otherwise falling to Syracuse, Yale, and Harvard. In the 76-70 loss to the Crimson, Colgate shot just 36.8 percent from the field but also managed a 45-34 rebounding advantage. 

Colgate was able to get back into the win column versus Binghamton in a blowout result. The Raiders were up 44-23 going into the second half and posted 40 more points in an 84-49 finish. Braeden Smith was the team’s leading scorer in the victory with 21 points, four rebounds, nine assists, and five steals. 

Arizona Wildcats 

Over on the Wildcats’ side, it’s been all Ws so far—with a couple of close finishes mixed in there. Arizona beat Morgan State, Duke, Southern, Belmont, and TX Arlington in their first five games of the season. The Wildcats managed to shoot an excellent 52.1 percent from the field in the 101-56 blowout win over the Mavericks, adding 46 rebounds and 27 team assists. 

Arizona cut it fairly close in their last matchup versus Michigan State but still walked away with a victory. The Wildcats were up 40-30 going into the second half and held on for the 74-68 outcome. All five starters finished in double-figures, including Caleb Love’s 17 points, four assists and four rebounds. 

COLGATE VS ARIZONA PREDICTION 

I’m going to lean toward Arizona. Probably not touching this one, though. The Wildcats are coming off yet another nice performance in their last outing versus a strong Michigan State team, shooting 45.8 percent from the field with a 39-34 rebounding advantage. The 3-point shooting wasn’t great, however, at 26.3 percent (5-of-19). That said, the Wildcats will have every advantage in this one and should roll in a blowout finish. An Arizona pick makes total sense. 

Still, Colgate has a few good scoring outings under their collective belt this year with 70 or more points in four of their seven games. The Raiders could rack up some significant points in garbage time, but I think Arizona still has the cover.
