Team preview: Arizona
Blue Ribbon Illustrated previews the 2003-04 college basketball season, exclusively on Insider.
COACH AND PROGRAM
Arizona basketball celebrates its 100th birthday this season, but it seems to be getting younger.
The Wildcats were a college phenomenon last season with three seniors in the starting lineup. This year their lineup will look more like a traditional hoop power with no seniors. "That's the biggest problem that faces anyone in Division I college basketball is that you just can't count on having seniors anymore," Arizona coach Lute Olson said. "The days of senior-laden team are a thing of the past."
