Continuing their tradition of making a splash with its Red-Blue Game, the Arizona Wildcats announced today they will honor their 1994 Final Four team at the intrasquad exhibition game on Oct. 12.
Coach Sean Miller has made a point of celebrating past Wildcats at the event -- and inviting in several top recruits to watch -- and this one will be particularly fitting because a key member of that team was Damon Stoudamire, who has returned as an assistant coach under Miller for next season.
The Wildcats are scheduled to begin full practices on Sept. 27, thanks to new NCAA rules, so the Red-Blue Game is also being moved up. It had typically been held during one of the last two weekends in October.
In preparation for next season, the Wildcats will also hold an exhibition game against Division II Augustana on Oct. 28 and also hold a closed scrimmage against a Division I team.
Here's the full schedule (dates subject to change and times yet to be announced except for the Red-Blue Game:
