Sean Miller’s Nightmare

If I had to describe the times I’ve experienced déjà vu, I’d say it’s “weird” or perhaps even “uncanny.” One word that personally doesn’t come to mind is “deflating.” However, I am not Sean Miller. The Arizona head coach must have felt a twinge of déjà vu yesterday when his team lost to Wisconsin in the West regional final for the second year in a row,...

Wiscon-singe: The Badgers Burn The Nets Against Arizona And Move Four-Ward Yet Again

Arizona’s Recipe for Being a Top Tournament Team

In the ESPN.com recap of the third round contest between Arizona and Ohio State, Wildcats coach Sean Miller is quoted: “We won our way.” Really, there’s no better way to describe how the Pac-12 ‘cats pushed through to oust the Buckeyes–who booted them from tournament play a couple years back–and punched their ticket to the Sweet Sixteen.

Sean Miller Had A Moment With The Pac-12 Trophy Saturday Night

Given Arizona’s recent dominance, it may be hard to believe that somehow, the Wildcats hadn’t won the Pac-12 Tournament title since 2002. But head coach Sean Miller, who has been in charge of the Wildcats program since 2009, surely was aware of that statistic. And so while his team was wildly celebrating Saturday night’s victory over Oregon in the league title game, he had...

Despite lengthy scoring droughts, Arizona escapes UCLA

In nearly 13 minutes of game time on Saturday night, the Arizona Wildcats were outscored 24-0 by the UCLA Bruins.   UCLA outscored Arizona 7-0 in the first six-plus minutes of the game, and then slapped a 17-0 run on Sean Miller’s team to start the second half.

Arizona's Miller, Olson remember Dean Smith

TUCSON, Ariz. -- When Arizona coach Sean Miller was growing up in the Pittsburgh area, he wanted to play for North Carolina coach Dean Smith.

Arizona's stout defense presents tall challenge for Arizona State

TEMPE, Ariz. -- The one-two punch Arizona coach Sean Miller threw at his team last month hit home. A short benching of stellar freshman Stanley Johnson and a general criticism of the team's defensive effort seems to have had the desired effect.  The No. 6 Wildcats (20-2, 8-1 Pac-12) have had the look of a Final Four contender -- what else is new? -- since losing two of four games...

Intense McConnell makes his case as Arizona's Mr. Indispensable

TUCSON, Ariz. -- Arizona Wildcats coach Sean Miller has signed 11 top 50 recruits in the past four years. They can all take a backseat to the unassuming transfer point guard from Duquesne.

McConnell leads Arizona to big win over Oregon

Arizona coach Sean Miller repeatedly said he expected senior guard T.J. McConnell soon would have a breakout game on the offensive end. It came in game No. 15.

No. 3 Arizona survives first true road game, stays undefeated

T hat is what the road will be about this season for the Arizona Wildcats -- survival. And likely too-close-for-comfort victories over teams ready and willing to take on a college basketball giant.

Arizona looks to make offensive progress vs. Utah Valley

As long as Arizona continues to play well defensively, coach Sean Miller believes there's time to work out the offensive kinks.
