Best clips from Arizona's weekly press conference as the Wildcats prepare to take on ASU for the final game at McKale Center this season.
Wildcats look to end regular season on right note when hosting rival ASU
The Arizona Wildcats will look to put a bow on their down year when they host rival Arizona State in the final regular-season game Saturday.
UA is coming off a 26-point loss to Oregon and currently sits ninth in the Pac-12 standings, while the Sun Devils overcame a seven-point deficit to beat Oregon State on Sunday and locked up the No. 2 seed in the conference.
Last time Arizona played ASU, the Wildcats lost 95-88 in overtime without freshman guard Brandon Williams, who missed the game with a right knee injury. Ryan Luther made 5 of 8 3-pointers for 19 points, but ASU's Remy Martin scored a career-high 31 points and had eight assists. ASU's win over Arizona was the first time Bobby Hurley beat Sean Miller since taking over the program in 2015.
Miller held his weekly press conference on Monday along with Justin Coleman, here's what they had to say before Saturday's matchup with ASU.
