TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - It's still early, but Arizona coach Sean Miller likes the way his team is shaping up, maybe more than at any other time during his five years in the desert.
The Wildcats return several key players from last year's Sweet 16 team, including athletic guard Nick Johnson, versatile forward Brandon Ashley and 7-foot center Kaleb Tarczewski.
They'll also have a true point guard this season, adding T.J. McConnell, a heady junior transfer who practiced with the team last season.
Miller also added another stellar recruiting class to go with them, one that includes Aaron Gordon and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, two of the top incoming freshmen in the country.
With that kind of experience, smarts and talent, the Wildcats could be set up for another deep run this season.
