TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Arizona coach Sean Miller repeated the same sentence five times, his voice rising as he continued.
It had been more than 15 minutes since Miller's Wildcats lost to UCLA in the Pac-12 tournament semifinals, yet he couldn't let go of a technical foul he received late in the game.
It was a quintessential Miller moment.
The son of a hard-nosed high school coach and raised in a hardscrabble area of western Pennsylvania, Miller used his intensity to fuel a Division I playing career and become one of the best coaches in college basketball.
Now his 21st-ranked Wildcats are back in the NCAA tournament, set to play Belmont on Thursday in Salt Lake City.
