Arizona Baskeball's Rawle Alkins won't just drive to the hoop. He'll be driving a car.

The Wildcat freshman is from New York City. He's used to using uber. Alkins says he's been practicing with his cousin.

The plan was to the DMV on Monday, but it was closed for the holiday. The Wildcats are off to Los Angeles this week for games aginst USC and UCLA, so driving will have to wait.

"Pray for me," Alkins joked to reporters on Monday.

Alkins is averaging twelve points a game for the Wildcats.
