With no shortage of storylines for Arizona Wildcats sports, several teams spoke Tuesday about their latest developments.
Fresh off a blowout road win over No. 22 Texas, women's basketball head coach Adia Barnes and point guard Aari McDonald talked about McDonald's record-setting 44-point performance.
Then, men's coach Sean Miller spoke highly of freshmen Zeke Nnaji's development in the first four games and Andre Iguodala's return over the weekend.
Arizona football followed that up with several of the players discussing their emotions heading into the final home game of the season. Here's the 10 best things that were said throughout the day.
