TUCSON, Arizona -- Arizona's non-conference basketball schedule is very little about the other opponent.

It's about the Wildcats: Getting young guys experience. Defining roles. Just getting better game-by-game.

Home games so far against Cal State Bakersfield, Sacred Heart and Northern Colorado didn't raise much preseason interest, although a couple of those games ended up raising fans' blood pressure in closer-than-expected outcomes.

With that in mind, here comes Texas Southern on Wednesday night (7 p.m. McKale Center).

The Tigers really are one of the most interesting teams in college basketball.

They have a Final Four coach (ex-Indiana head man Mike Davis). They play all their non-conference games away from their Houston home.

They are from one of the lower mid-major conferences (Southwestern Athletic) but pull in big-time transfers.

They have a player who has been all-conference in basketball AND football.
