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!

It’s time to get caught up with the NBA ‘Cats! There are also three alumni in action on Tuesday night, check back later to see how they did.


Saddiq Bey

The Pistons were on the losing end of a double-overtime thriller against the Lakers on Saturday, falling 135-129 to Lebron James and Co. Bey was in the starting five, chipping in seven points (1-of-7 shooting) with two boards and two steals.

Bey was perfect from the floor in Detroit’s 122-111 win over Brooklyn. He had 15 points on 6-of-6 shooting, including three baskets from long range. He also had three boards and a pair of assists.

Up Next: vs. Indiana on Thursday, Feb. 11, at 8 p.m. ET

Josh Hart

Hart had one point, eight boards, and an assist in New Orleans’ 118-109 win over Memphis on Saturday.

Hart dominated off the bench for the Pelicans, racking up a 20-point, 17-rebound double-double through a game-high 40 minutes of action in their 130-101 win over Houston on Monday night.

Up Next: at Chicago on Wednesday, Feb. 10, at 9 p.m. ET

Eric Paschall

Paschall didn’t play in the Warriors’ 134-132 loss to the Mavericks on Saturday due to a sore right knee.

He returned on Monday night in Golden State’s 105-100 loss to San Antonio. He had four points and three boards through 12 minutes of action off the bench.

The Warriors bounced back with a 114-91 win in a rematch with the Spurs on Tuesday night. Paschall added 15 points (6-of-7 shooting, 3-for-3 from three), with six boards and two assists.

Up Next: vs. Orlando on Thursday, Feb. 11, at 10 p.m. ET

Ryan Arcidiacono

Arcidiacono logged his first few minutes since Jan. 23., after seemingly fading out of the rotation. He played for 13 minutes in the Bulls’ 118-92 win over Orlando on Saturday. He was scoreless, but had three boards, a pair of assists, and a steal.

He did log six minutes, but had no stats in their 105-101 loss to Washington on Monday night.

Up Next: vs. New Orleans on Wednesday, Feb. 10, at 9 p.m. ET

Mikal Bridges

Bridges scored a team-high 19 points in Phoenix’s 100-91 win over Boston on Sunday. He also had nine boards and two assists in the win.

He followed up with another nice offensive performance on Monday night against the Cavaliers. He had 22 points on an efficient 8-of-10 shooting performance, with four rebounds, five assists, one steal, and a block in the 119-113 win.

Jalen Brunson

Brunson had seven points, eight boards, and a pair of assists in Dallas’ close 134-132 win over Golden State on Saturday night.

The Raptors managed to bounce back on Monday with a 128-113 win over Memphis. They did so without Lowry for the most part, who exited the game after eight minutes of action due to back spasms. He had four points (2-of-2 shooting) and an assist before having to leave.
