ESPN analyst Seth Greenberg rates Sean Miller as a national coach of the year candidate, let alone a sure-bet as the conference coach of the year.

As good as Aaron Gordon has been this year, many people I talked to during last summer’s AAU circut said Johnson would have more of an immediate impact on Arizona’s program.

Aside from Johnson, Allen, point guard Parker Jackson-Cartwright and power forward Craig Victor is an NBA talent in the making — 7-footer Dusan Ristic, who committed to Arizona on Saturday.
I want to say thanks to all my teammates, coaches and all people in @sunrisehoops . Next year I will be part of University of Arizona!

My upset pick in 1st day #Pac12Tourney : OSU over Oregon. Look what happened to Cal/ASU in game after buildup vs UA. OSU more than capable.
