Team preview: Arizona
Blue Ribbon Illustrated previews the 2004-05 college basketball season, exclusively on Insider.
It's hard to argue with Lute Olson's resume.
In 21 seasons at Arizona, Olson has taken the Wildcats to 20 consecutive NCAA Tournaments, produced 17 straight 20-win seasons, four Final Four appearances, one national title, and an .802 winning percentage over the last 17 seasons -- just to list a few accomplishments by the Hall of Fame coach.
These days, it's hard to believe one of Olson's team was never ranked in a Top 25 poll.
After the 2000-01 season, that was the case.
