TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Arizona Women’s Basketball Team held its annual Media Day on Monday in its state-of-the-art locker room lounge at McKale Center.

Head Coach Niya Butts and all 14 student-athletes chatted with members of the media to preview the upcoming 2015-2016 season.

The Wildcats will open their season Nov. 14 at Toledo after an exhibition warmup on Nov. 10 against Eastern New Mexico.

“I’m looking forward to getting the season going,” Butts said. “This is the first time in three or four years, maybe five, where we’ve had every one on the roster be able to step on the floor and be able to participate and not be out with an injury.”

Butts and the Wildcats will continue to hit the practice court over the next two weeks before opening up games.
