If either Arizona or Kentucky make it to the Final Four, they will have been battle tested that's for sure. I of course want to pick Arizona, Ayton has been shredding people lately, scoring in the 30's and getting 15+ rebounds. A huge key, as I said several weeks ago is what Jackson-Cartwright will show up, the one who played fantastic in the tournament, bombing 3's, getting steals, and throwing great lobs over the top to Ayton and Ristic, or the one who can't hit a shot, turns the ball over 4 times a game and gets in foul trouble. If he plays great, Arizona is gonna be a handful for any team.



So nobody else has a low seed darkhorse?

Miami and U of A gone. They weren't that good anyway. Helps Ayton prep for draft.

First of all, Ayton was not bought. Second, nobody would pay a red cent for the rest of the lot on that team. Trier is a very overrated guard. He doesn't penetrate worth jack, his defense is super soft, and he disappears for entire halves of games. He's got a decent shot and he can jump out of the gym but that doesn't mean anything really. The rest of the freshman this year, other than Ayton, were horrible recruits. Sure 2 or 3 of them were top 100 recruits, but when I watch them play, they are extremely undisciplined players.

This early exit might spell the end of Miller however. Who would have thought 4 weeks ago that it would be a 1st round exit that did Miller in and not an investigation, lmao.

People focus alot on size but it really does seem to me the best teams usually have really awesome guard play. Dudes who can penetrate to the rim, hit shots and defend. Arizona's guards can't do any of those really, not on a consistent basis.

I will be really curious to see if this affects Ayton's draft stock. I mean, not his fault the other team played 4 guards, all of which were better than anybody Arizona had. But still, it really looks bad on the resume. He'll still go top 3, but being #1 overall might be gone, we'll see.

Miller is a terrible coach. Gets beat with worse players.

Ayton is still going top 3. not a huge fan of his motor. defense is lazy. not sure they can change that.

They bought out RichRod in football for 6 million, Iím not sure they will buyout Miller, certainly wonít be for cause. They now have a credible reason to can him with players bolting and have zero incoming recruits.

Yup, they now have reason, being b**** slapped in the 1st round and losing all of next years recruits. It may not be fair to blame the recruits bailing on the school but it's reality and they have to do something in my opinion. And I agree with Yerner, Miller should have at least been to a few Final Fours with all the talent that has come through the doors. It's like he's good at getting 1 or 2 key players, and they usually get drafted very high, but he's been horrible at recruiting/coaching the role players. Just look at team this year, Trier is horribly overrated. How many times do you see him go an entire half without doing anything, all too often. Alkins was hurt for part of the year, and he's a good player, but he's not a great player, too inconsistent. He'll be lucky to get drafted at the bottom of the 2nd round. Trier is the same, I wouldn't draft him at all, crap defense, not a great passer, can't really penetrate effectively. He always tries to jab step back for the jumper, that's all he's got really besides being able to jump through the roof on break away dunks. Well there's 1000 guys who can do that. Cartwright is a backup point guard, period. He is a great back up, but should never have been a starter. And then all of those pathetic wingmen (Akot, Randolph, Smith) were pretty useless. No real depth behind Ayton and Ristic for the bigs either. Pinder is a joke.

Gonna be some lean years ahead for Arizona I'm afraid. Probably gonna take them 2-3 years to rebuild once they find a good coach. In fact, the entire Pac12 is kinda of a joke right now, both in football and basketball. In the past 10-15 years the only two teams that had any consistency were Oregon and Arizona and now those schools look like lean years ahead. Ugh. Pac12 needs to get it's crap together.
