Back to work for UA Basketballers

Posted: Updated:
TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Sunday is an off-day for most, but with the Pac-12 season looming both Arizona's men's and women's basketball teams were working on the first day of this new week.

The ladies finished non-conference at 8-3 and will travel to face the Washington schools this weekend.

Niya Butts' crew is starting to find that chemistry they will need to navigate a successful season in conference play.

They must do it though without point guard Candice Warthen, who will miss entire season due to a foot injury that required surgery this month.


The men are 12-0 and sitting in the number three position in the nation.

Sean Miller has a plethora of depth this season. Only senior Solomon Hill is averaging more than 30 minutes per game and seven players are on the floor for 17 minutes or more each game.

That tells you what you need to know about Arizona Basketball when great players like Angelo Chol and Gabe York can't find significant playing time.

The 10-2 Colorado squad that stole the Pac-12 Tournament title away from Arizona comes to town on Thursday night for a 6 p.m. tip at McKale Center.
