With Arizona readying themselves to begin their Pac 12 Conference schedule the Wildcats took nearly two weeks off to rest and recover. Arizona did not have a game this week which left the team and their leading scorer Stanley Johnson to think about what went wrong against UNLV. Despite the loss Arizona is still the 12th best team in the nation in field goal percentage as the Wildcats knock down 50% of their shot attempts on average every single night. Arizona’s scoring attack could use some help as the team is managing just 76.3 points per game against a weaker schedule that only saw two ranked teams come to town in the then #9 Gonzaga Bulldogs and the then #15 ranked San Diego State Aztecs. Arizona has scored in the 60’s four times already this season including their loss to UNLV and may get exposed by some of the tougher teams in their conference including Washington State and Washington.

12-26-14: The Arizona Wildcats played a pair of games this week before the school and their basketball program shutdown for an extended Christmas holiday break. The first game came out on the road when Arizona traveled to UTEP to take on the UTEP Miners inside the Don Haskins Center. During the contest UTEP played a much better game than anyone expected, especially Arizona, and hung around until the last few minutes of the contest. Despite a 6-3 record against lesser opponents on the season the Miners kept things interesting before ultimately losing to Arizona by the score of 60-55. Arizona survived against UTEP and quickly found themselves in another dogfight later in the week when the team traveled to UNLV to take on the UNLV Rebels inside the Thomas & Mack Center. Arizona seemingly put their scare behind them in the first half of the contest outscoring the Rebels by five points at the half before a suspect defense began to show kinks in the armor. UNLV and their duo of Christian Wood and Rashad Vaughn reminded Arizona why the Rebels had not lost a game at home this season. UNLV pushed past Arizona in the second half scoring 35 points while holding the #3 ranked team in the country to just 26 points en route to a 71-67 victory over the Wildcats. With the loss Arizona’s record dropped to 12-1 on the season ending their bid for a perfect season. Catch the Wildcats next week as the team takes the week to rest up and think about the loss to UNLV since Arizona does not play a game next week.

With over 1,700 wins in the program's history, the Wildcats regularly appear in the top 25 polls and NCAA tournament. From 1985 to 2009, Arizona went to the NCAA tournament in 25 consecutive seasons, two shy of the NCAA record. The Wildcats have spent 110 weeks in the top 5 of Top 25 polls, ranking 10th all-time and 423 weeks in the top 25, which is also 10th all-time. Arizona has made the Final Four in four seasons: 1988, 1994, 1997 and 2001.
Their lone championship came in 1997 as they beat the University of Kentucky. Most of Arizona's success comes from the coaching of Lute Olson, who holds the record for most wins as a Pac-10 coach (327). Olson, who coached from 1983 to 2008 at Arizona, finished with an all-time record of 781–280 with 589 of those wins coming at Arizona. The only time he didn't make the NCAA tournament at Arizona was his first season. Sean Miller took over the program in 2008 and has kept the Wildcats at a high level, where Arizona basketball tickets have remained in high demand since. Before the 2014-15 season, he had a record of 130-48 at Arizona and has taken the Wildcats to two Elite Eight's.
The Wildcats have produced a lot of NBA talent, including a plethora of point guards. Players such as Steve Kerr, Mike Bibby, Jason Terry, Gilbert Arenas, Jason Gardner and Aaron Gordon all played at Arizona. Wildcat fans are faithful and regularly fill up the McKale Center, which seats 14,655 at capacity.
Located in Tucson, Arizona, the Arizona Wildcats are a collegiate athletic program that represents the University of Arizona.

Men’s teams include football, baseball, basketball, cross-country, golf, swimming & diving, tennis, and track and field. Women’s teams include basketball, cross-country, golf, gymnastics, sand volleyball, soccer, softball, swimming & diving, tennis, track & field, and volleyball.

Olsen retired after the 2009 due to health issues, but his successor, Sean Miller, has led Arizona to Elite Eight appearances in 2011, 2014, and 2015. Arizona’s football program was successful during the 1990s, but turnover within the head coaching ranks made 2000s somewhat tenuous. In 2011, Rich Rodriguez was hired to rectify Arizona’s program.
