The team competes in the [[Pacific Ten Conference]] (Pac-10) of [[NCAA]] [[Division I]]. They are currently coached by [[Sean Miller]], who succeeded interim coach [[Russ Pennell]]. While Arizona has a long and rich basketball history, the program came to national prominence under the tutelage of former head coach [[Lute Olson]], who since 1983 has established the program as among America's elite in college basketball. Known as "'''Point Guard U'''"{{cite news|first=Van|last=Colemen |url=http://www.cstv.com/sports/m-baskbl/stories/052207aas.html |title=Nation's No. 3 Junior Commits to Point Guard U|publisher=''cstv.com'' |date=2007-05-22 |accessdate=2008-03-16}} by fans and foes alike, the school has produced spectacular guards and NBA players like [[Sean Elliott]], [[Steve Kerr]], [[Khalid Reeves]], [[Damon Stoudamire]], [[Mike Bibby]], [[Jason Terry]], [[Richard Jefferson]], [[Gilbert Arenas]], and [[Jerryd Bayless]]. 11 NBA Championships have been won by wildcats players. Since the NBA draft was shortened to two rounds in 1989, Arizona leads the nation with 31 selections in that span. This number grew when [[Jordan Hill]] and [[Chase Budinger]] were selected in the [[2009 NBA Draft]]{{cite web |title=Nine Pac-10 Players Selected In 2009 NBA Draft |url=http://www.pac-10.org/sports/m-baskbl/spec-rel/062609aac.html |date=26 June 2009 |publisher=Pacific-10 Conference |accessdate=19 September 2009}}. As of 2008, the Arizona basketball team had reached the [[NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Championship|NCAA Tournament]] for 24 consecutive years, though the NCAA vacated a 1999 appearance. With this change, Arizona now has a consecutive appearance record of 14 (1985-1998) and current record of 10 (2000-2009).{{cite news |title=2009 NCAA Men's final four records|url=http://web1.ncaa.org/web_files/stats/m_final4/2009/04Tournament.pdf |accessdate=2009-08-22 }} The Wildcats have reached the Final Four of the NCAA Tournament on four occasions ([[1988 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament|1988]], [[1994 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament|1994]], [[1997 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament|1997]], and [[2001 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament|2001]]). In 1997, Arizona defeated the [[Kentucky Wildcats men's basketball|University of Kentucky]], the defending national champions, to win the NCAA National Championship. In Pac-10 play, former head coach Lute Olson currently holds the record for most wins as a Pac-10 coach at 327.{{cite news|url=http://www.pac-10.org/auto_pdf/p_hotos/s_chools/pac10/sports/m-baskbl/auto_pdf/MBB-MG2 |title=Arizona Team Page |publisher=''pac-10.org'' |date=2007-10-26 |accessdate=2008-03-16}} In addition, the team has won 11 Pac-10 regular season titles and 4 Pac-10 tournament titles. Arizona also holds the distinction of recording 5 out of the 7 17–1 Pac-10 seasons (one-loss seasons). No team has gone undefeated since the formation of the Pac-10. Arizona has spent 110 weeks in the top 10 which is 8th all-time. ==History== ===Early years=== University of Arizona fielded its first men's basketball team in 1904–05. Orin Albert Cates coached the team and drew opponents from local YMCAs. The first game Arizona played ended in a 40–32 victory over the Morenci YMCA.{{cite news|first=Scott|last=Barker |url=http://www.arizonaathletics.com/m-basketball/page.aspx?id=88 |title=From Pop to Lute: 100 years of Wildcat Hoops |publisher=''Arizona Athletics.com'' |date=2003-11-01 |accessdate=2008-03-15}} In 1914, Arizona's first famous coach, [[Pop McKale|James Fred "Pop" McKale]] was lured away from a teaching and coaching job at Tucson High School to take over as [[Athletic Director]] and coach [[basketball]], [[American football|football]], [[baseball]] and [[Athletics (track and field)|track]]. McKale took things to a new level, posting a 9–0 record his first season as a basketball coach. Moreover, McKale elevated the program to intercollegiate play. While basketball was his least favorite of the many sports he coached while at UA, He chalked up three undefeated seasons and a career-winning average of .803, which has never been bested by a UA coach who has held the post for at least three years. The [[McKale Center|McKale Memorial Center]], the main arena for Arizona basketball, is named in his honor. From 1925 to 1961, the program was under the stewardship of [[Fred Enke]], UA's longest tenured coach.{{cite web|url=http://www.arizonaathletics.com/auto_pdf/p_hotos/s_chools/ariz/sports/m-baskbl/auto_pdf/MBKB|title= Arizona 2008-09 Media Guide History and Records pp. 155-164|publisher=''arizonaathletics.com'' |accessdate=2009-04-07}} Coach Fred A. Enke was responsible for the early successes of Wildcat basketball. Enke amassed 509 wins in his tenure on the UA sidelines and still ranks as the second-winningest coach in school history, winning more than 60 percent of his games. Enke also led the Cats to the first four postseason appearances (3 N.I.T./1 NCAA) in school history and in 1950-51 competed in both the N.I.T. and NCAA postseason tournaments. Finally, he was the first coach to lead Arizona to a national ranking. Two of his teams (1950, 1951) finished the season ranked in the top 15. Under Enke, UA competed in the now defunct [[Border Intercollegiate Athletic Association|Border Conference]]. Under Enke's direction, Arizona won 12 conference championships, including a span in which the Cats won or shared seven consecutive Border Conference titles (1942-51). No Border Conference team won as many league games (231) or overall contests (398) during its membership. In 1962, Arizona joined the [[Western Athletic Conference]] as a founding member after the Border Conference disbanded. In 1972, [[Fred Snowden]] was hired as the head basketball coach, making Arizona the second Division I school and the first major program to hire an [[African American]] head coach.{{cite news |first=Robert |last=Thomas Jr. |title= Fred Snowden, Basketball Coach and Black Pioneer, Is Dead at 57 |url= http://query.nytimes.com/gst/fullpage.html?res=9C05E6DF1430F93AA25752C0A962958260 |work= nytimes.com |publisher= |date=1994-01-19 | accessdate=2008-03-30}}{{cite news |first=James |last=Kelley |title= UA legend Snowden paved way for black coaches |url= http://wc.arizona.edu/papers/97/basketball/02_4.html |work= wc.arizona.edu |publisher= |date=2003-11-21 | accessdate=2008-03-30}} Known as "The Fox," Snowden brought the excitement back to Wildcat basketball during his 10 years on the Arizona sideline, averaging more than 80 points per game in six of his 10 years and topping the 100-point barrier 27 times. Snowden led Arizona to the NCAA tournament twice, in [[1976 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament|1976]] and [[1977 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament|1977]], getting as far as the Elite Eight in 1976 before losing to [[UCLA Bruins men's basketball|UCLA]] 82–66, a game after defeating [[UNLV Runnin' Rebels men's basketball|UNLV]] in a Sweet Sixteen matchup. During the 1976 tournament he also logged Arizona's first and only tournament wins until Lute Olson's hiring, beating [[John Thompson (basketball)|John Thompson's]] [[Georgetown Hoyas men's basketball|Georgetown]] team 83–76. Snowden's 1976 team also won the school's only WAC championship title on a buzzer-beater by [[Gilbert Myles]] verses [[New Mexico Lobos men's basketball|New Mexico]], with the help of the spectacular play of [[Bob Elliott (basketball)|Bob Elliott]], [[Jim Rappis]], and [[Al Fleming]]. In 1978, Coach Snowden helped transition the basketball program over to the newly formed Pac-10. Snowden could not sustain success in the Pac-10, however, finishing no higher than 4th place in the conference. His 9–18 final season led UA to look for a replacement. Athletic Director Dave Strack brought in [[Ben Lindsey (basketball)|Ben Lindsey]] to replace Fred Snowden in 1983, and on the surface, it seemed like a reasonable move. Lindsey had junior college expertise, having had a successful career at [[Grand Canyon University]], where he won two national titles. What resulted, however, was nothing short of disaster. The 1983 team went 4–24, with only one Pac-10 win. ===Lute Olson era=== Coming off a previous season record of 4–24 with only a single Pac-10 win, UA Athletic director [[Cedric Dempsey]] hired Lute Olson from the [[Iowa Hawkeyes men's basketball|University of Iowa]] to take over the program. UA needed a coach with a history of quickly turning around programs, which Olson had done previously at Iowa. “I knew we had a tremendous amount of work to do,” Olson recalled in a recent interview with Tucson Lifestyle. “The program was in shambles at that point, after the terrible year before..." Under Olson, Arizona quickly rose to national prominence. Arizona won its first Pac-10 title in 1986, only three years after his arrival. That season set up an amazing 1987–88 season, which included taking the [[Great Alaska Shootout]] championship, the Valley Bank Fiesta Bowl Classic championship and the Pac-10 championship. Under players [[Steve Kerr]], [[Kenny Lofton]] and [[Sean Elliott]], Arizona spent much of the season ranked #1 and made their first (and Olson's second) Final Four. While Arizona lost in the Final Four round, their play put the program on the map and launched Arizona's reign as a perennial Pac-10 and NCAA tournament contender. In 1997, Arizona defeated the [[Kentucky Wildcats men's basketball|University of Kentucky]], the defending national champions, to win the NCAA National Championship. Prior to winning the championship in 1997, Arizona stormed back from 10-point deficits in the Southeast Regional First Round and Second Round against #13 [[South Alabama Jaguars men's basketball|South Alabama]] and #12 [[College of Charleston Cougars men's basketball|College of Charleston]], respectively winning 65–57 and 73–69. The Southeast Regional Semifinal pitted against overall #1 Kansas (34–1) which had defeated Arizona the year before in the 1996 West Regional Semifinal. However, Arizona came out fast and stunned the [[Kansas Jayhawks men's basketball|Jayhawks]] 85–82, then prevailed in overtime against [[Providence Friars men's basketball|Providence]] 96–92 in the Elite Eight to clinch a berth in the Final Four. Arizona then beat #1 seed [[North Carolina Tar Heels men's basketball|North Carolina]] 66–58 in the Final Four, which turned out to be [[Dean Smith]]'s last game as a coach. Arizona also accomplished the unprecedented feat of beating three number one seeds in the [[1997 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament|same tournament]]. The year following the Championship season, 1998, Arizona returned all 5 starters ([[Mike Bibby]], Michael Dickerson, [[Miles Simon]], Bennett Davison, and AJ Bramletthttp://www.geocities.com/colosseum/park/1806/championship2.html) and were poised to make another run after receiving the #1 overall seed in the West, but were upset by Utah in the [[1998 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament|Elite 8]]. In 1999, all 5 starters were lost to graduation or early entry to the NBA draft and Arizona's hopes of continuing its streak of consecutives trip to the NCAA tournament was in jeopardy until senior point guard [[Jason Terry]] (the 6th man the previous two seasons) elevated his game (receiving National Player of the Year honors) and continued the school's amazing streak. 2001 was one of the most challenging and rewarding years for the program. Lute Olson’s wife Bobbi, well known to players and fans alike as a steadfast presence on the sidelines, lost her battle with cancer. The team, which had been a preseason pick by many to win the national title had to play without Olson for three weeks while Olson was on bereavement leave. The Cats vowed to dedicate their season to Bobbi. With guard [[Jason Gardner]], center [[Loren Woods]] and forward [[Michael Wright (basketball)|Michael Wright]] — each an All-American — leading the way, the Cats trounced their opponents, beating Oregon 104–65, devastating USC 105–61, and charging through the [[2001 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament|Final Four]]. They took down Eastern Illinois, [[Butler Bulldogs men's mens basletball|Butler]], Mississippi, [[Illinois Fighting Illini men's basketball|Illinois]], and [[Michigan State Spartans men's basketball|Michigan State]], only to be stopped by [[Duke Blue Devils men's basketball|Duke]] in the title game. In his later years at UA, Olson fielded competitive teams with extremely talented point guards. Continuing the reputation and nickname "Point Guard U", recent standouts included [[Jason Gardner]], [[Salim Stoudamire]], [[Mustafa Shakur]], [[Jerryd Bayless]] and [[Nic Wise]]. Arizona won their most recent Pac-10 title during the 2004–2005 season under the spectacular play of seniors Salim Stoudamire and center [[Channing Frye]], That team also made it to the Elite 8 and the verge of the final four before blowing a 15 point lead with four minutes to play and losing in overtime, 90–89, to Number 1 Seed and eventual National Runner-up [[Illinois Fighting Illini men's basketball|University of Illinois]].{{cite web | url=http://sports.espn.go.com/ncb/recap?gameId=254000061 | title=Arizona 89, Illinois 90 | publisher=espn.com |date= |accessdate=2008-03-30 }} Olson took an unexplained leave of absence at the beginning of the 2007–2008 season. Assistant coach Kevin O'Neill took over interim head coaching duties for the Arizona Wildcats. At that time, Olson announced that he intended to be back for the 2008–09 season and finish out his contract, which was scheduled to end in 2011.{{cite news|first=Andy|last=Katz |url=http://sports.espn.go.com/ncb/news/story?id=3286361 |title=Olson to coach Arizona next season |publisher=''ESPN.com'' |date=2008-03-10 |accessdate=2008-03-13}} His departure was criticized by some members of the media. They also questioned how he and the UA athletic department handled his return and the verbal succession agreement with coach O'Neill.{{cite news|url=http://sports.espn.go.com/ncb/news/story?id=3324436 |title= In first meeting with media, Olson says O'Neill won't remain on Arizona staff |publisher=''ESPN.com'' |date=2008-04-02 |accessdate=2008-04-06 }} However, on October 23, 2008, he unexpectedly announced his retirement from the program (by way of an announcement from Arizona athletic director Jim Livengood).{{cite news|first=Patrick |last=Finley |url=http://www.azstarnet.com/sn/wildcats/263822 |title= LUTE OLSON: 'I leave with a great sense of pride'|publisher=''azstarnet.com'' |date=2008-10-23 |accessdate=2009-04-07 }} A few days later, Olson's personal physician held a press conference and explained that the retirement was strongly advised due to health concerns.{{cite news|first=Steve |last=Rivera |url=http://www.usatoday.com/sports/college/mensbasketball/pac10/2008-10-28-olson-stroke_N.htm |title= Olson's stroke led to depression and, ultimately, retirement|publisher=''usatoday.com'' |date=2008-10-28 |accessdate=2009-04-07 }}{{cite news|first=Patrick |last=Finley |url=http://www.azstarnet.com/sn/wildcats/264712 |title= Coach had stroke within last year (with video) |publisher=''azstarnet.com'' |date=2008-10-29 |accessdate=2009-04-07 }} ===After Lute=== After Lute Olson's abrupt retirement, Arizona Athletic Director Jim Livengood appointed assistant coach [[Russ Pennell]] as the interim head coach for the [[2008–09 NCAA Division I men's basketball season|2008–2009 season]] 23 days before the start of the season.{{cite news|first=Andy|last=Katz |url=http://sports.espn.go.com/ncb/news/story?id=3662241 |title= Dunlap rebuffs Arizona offer; Pennell to replace Olson |publisher=''ESPN.com'' |date=2008-10-25 |accessdate=2009-03-22 }} The appointment came after [[Mike Dunlap]], the associate head coach brought in to replace Kevin O'Neill, turned down the job. Under Pennell, the Cats finished 19-13 in the regular season, including a non-conference win over Kansas and a 7-game win streak with wins over UCLA and Washington. Despite a 19–13 finish to the season, Arizona was controversially selected as one of the last teams into the field of 65 as a 12th seed in the Midwest region, extending its NCAA consecutive tournament appearances to 25 games.{{cite news|url=http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/wire?section=ncb&id=3982968 |title= Wildcats earn 25th straight NCAA tourney bid |publisher=''ESPN.com'' |date=2009-03-15 |accessdate=2009-03-22}} The Cats made it to the Sweet 16 (regional semi-finals) with wins over 5-seed [[Utah Utes men's basketball|Utah]] and 13-seed [[Cleveland State Vikings men's basketball|Cleveland State]], before falling to overall 1-seed, [[Louisville Cardinals men's basketball|Louisville]].{{cite news|first=Pete|last=Thamel |url=http://www.nytimes.com/2009/03/23/sports/ncaabasketball/23arizona.html?ref=ncaabasketball|title= Arizona Ends Cleveland State’s Charmed Run |publisher=''nytimes.com'' |date=2009-03-22 |accessdate=2009-03-22 }} Despite Pennell's post-season success, he was not retained, as Arizona announced before his hiring they would hold a national coaching search after the season ended. (On April 9, 2009, Pennell was hired as head coach of the men's basketball team at Division II [[Grand Canyon University]], a member of the [[Pacific West Conference]].) After the end of the season, various coaching names were considered to succeed Lute Olson on a permanent basis. Arizona contacted [[Gonzaga University|Gonzaga]]'s [[Mark Few]], [[University of Pittsburgh|Pittsburgh]]'s [[Jamie Dixon]] and then-[[University of Memphis|Memphis]] coach [[John Calipari]] (before he accepted the vacant position at [[University of Kentucky|Kentucky]]) to take the job. Arizona even brought [[University of Southern California|USC]]'s [[Tim Floyd]] on campus for an interview and made an offer, which he ultimately turned down. ===Sean Miller era=== Arizona finally hired [[Sean Miller]] from [[Xavier Musketeers men's basketball|Xavier University]] to fill the head coaching position; the official press conference formally introducing Miller as the 13th head men's basketball coach at Arizona was held on April 7 at McKale Center.{{cite news|first=Andy|last=Katz |url=http://sports.espn.go.com/ncb/news/story?id=4046754 |title= Xavier's Miller accepts Arizona job |publisher=''ESPN.com'' |date=2009-04-06 |accessdate=2009-04-06 }} At the press conference, Miller acknowledged Lute Olson's impact on the Arizona program, addressing Olson, who was in attendance, personally: "...one of the reasons I sit here today is because of the great legacy you built." Miller also promised U of A fans that they would enjoy the style of both offense and defense he would bring to Wildcat basketball. Miller's salary will be $1.6 million per year; he will receive an extra $400,000 per season from [[Nike, Inc.|Nike]] and media contracts during a five-year deal, as well as a $1 million signing bonus and other amenities such as season tickets to other Wildcat sporting events and the use of a private jet.{{cite news|first=Patrick |last=Finley |url=http://www.azstarnet.com/sn/wildcats/287746 |title= Arizona Wildcats Basketball: 'Honored' Miller gets $1 million signing bonus |publisher=''azstarnet.com'' |date=2009-04-07 |accessdate=2009-04-07 }} Within a week of joining the program, Miller had already convinced two recruits, Kyryl Natyazhko and Solomon Hill, the latter of which originally planned to play for Arizona but jumped to USC after Olson retired, to play for Arizona.{{cite news|first=Bruce |last=Pascoe |url=http://www.azstarnet.com/sn/wildcats/288423 |title= Ukrainian Natyazhko chooses UA, Miller |publisher=''azstarnet.com'' |date=2009-04-12 |accessdate=2009-04-14}}{{cite news|first=Bruce |last=Pascoe |url=http://www.azstarnet.com/sn/wildcats/288634 |title= Arizona Wildcats Basketball: Solomon Hill 'bleeds red and blue' father says |publisher=''azstarnet.com'' |date=2009-04-14 |accessdate=2009-04-14}} ==Coaching records== ===Arizona yearly records=== Source:{{cite news|url=http://64.246.64.33/default.asp?c=detnews&page=cbask/teams/directA11.htm |title=University of Arizona Directory |publisher=''detnews.com'' |date=2007-03-21 |accessdate=2008-03-16}} {{CBB Yearly Record Start |type=coach |conference= |postseason= |poll=no }} {{CBB Yearly Record Subhead | name = Orin A.
