From Tuesday through Friday, each time a former Wildcat hits the court, we will recap how they did and include a few highlights (if available). On Tuesdays, we’ll also recap what happened over the weekend, so you don’t miss the action. This will also serve as a discussion board. We will try to keep it updated as soon as the games are over, so check back often!
After the Providence-Villanova game, we’ve got four different Wildcats in action: Jalen Brunson (Dallas Mavericks), Ryan Arcidiacono (Chicago Bulls), Mikal Bridges (Phoenix Suns), and Kyle Lowry (Toronto Raptors).
Arcidiacono set a career-high mark for assists in the Bulls’ 122-110 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies. Arcidiacono only had two points (1-of-2 shooting), but he was active on the glass and in setting up his teammates. He finished with six rebounds, and he also had 11 assists—with just one turnover. The 11-assist mark surpassed his previous personal best of eight assists.
All in all, a very efficient night for him.

Brunson might have gotten bumped out of the starting five, but he still played big minutes in the Mavericks’ 112-101 loss to the Miami Heat. He had six points, three rebounds, and four assists of the bench. He was one of the rare few Mavericks that finished with a positive plus/minus rating, adding a team-high +2 mark.
Up Next: vs. Denver on Friday, Feb. 22, at 8:30 p.m. ET
It wasn’t a great scoring night for Lowry, but his Raptors did enjoy a 129-120 win over the Washington Wizards. Lowry was just 4-for-12 on the floor, en route to a 14-point performance. He also had four rebounds, 13 assists, and three steals. Pascal Siakam was a big beneficiary of Lowry’s playmaking, as he finished with a career-high 44 point performance to lead Toronto.
Up Next: vs. San Antonio on Friday, Feb. 22, at 7 p.m. ET (ESPN)
Bridges is in the starting five of the Phoenix Suns-Los Angeles Clippers game. The Suns trail the Clippers, 67-51, at halftime.
So far, Bridges has played 19 minutes, scoring three points, grabbing two rebounds, and dishing out a pair of assists.
