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.

Arizona weathers 'storms' to advance to Sweet 16 again

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) After the first weekend of the NCAA Tournament, Arizona coach Sean Miller can roll off a list of concerns about his team: staying focused on defense, moving the ball against a zone and making outside shots.

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...

To be great, Arizona has to solve case of disappearing defense

TUCSON, Ariz. -- Arizona, this is your final wake-up call. That's three losses. That's three hard-to-figure losses. That's three losses to teams that rank no higher than No. 69 in the RPI. Gathering up the records of the other nine teams in the AP top 10, you can find only one loss to a team rated so poorly in the RPI -- Wisconsin's defeat at No. 125 Rutgers. Three losses. At UNLV...
