The Tommy Lloyd era is off to a 10-0 start and the Arizona Wildcats will look to make it 11-0 on Wednesday when they travel to Knoxville to play Tennessee.

Arizona Wildcats vs. Tennessee Volunteers (-2, 149.5)

(stats as of Tuesday morning)

Arizona has gotten the job done on both ends, ranking fourth in the country in points scored on a per-possession basis and sixth in points allowed on a per-possession basis.

Tennessee hangs its hat on defense, ranking fifth in points allowed on a per-possession basis and is also fifth in steals forced on a per-possession basis.

The Arizona offense has been centered around passing, owning the third-highest assist-per-made-field goal ratio in the country, which is a good way to score on the Volunteers, as they are 147th in assist per made field goal ratio on defense.

With Arizona also No. 1 in the country in opponent 2-point shooting percentage, the Wildcats will pass another early season test with a win.

Pick: Arizona + 2
