Arizona women’s basketball: press conference with Adia Barnes

After an overtime loss to instate rival ASU, the Arizona Wildcats ended their regular season on a two-game losing streak and finished second in the Pac-12 conference.

During the past three games, Arizona has struggled to find the bottom of the net, shooting an underwhelming 61-for-170 from the field, which is a horrific 35 percent.

Arizona still through all its struggles locked up the two seed in the Pac-12 tournament and will await the winner of the Washington State-Utah game to see who it matches up against.

The Wildcats swept the season series winning by an average of 14.5 points against Utah, who finished the season 5-15, good for 10th place in the conference.

Arizona struggled against against Washington State, splitting the season series with a 71-69 overtime loss which featured the Wildcats blowing a double-digit lead.

In those two games, Arizona’s shooting struggles played a major factor as it shot 45-for-127 for 35 percent, which allowed the Cougars to stay in the games and pull off the upset in Pullman.

Here’s Adia Barnes talking about the mood around the locker room after finishing the regular season on a two-game losing streak and discussing how the team can fix its shooting woes:
