SALT LAKE CITY — There they were. Three little words on a whiteboard in the Arizona Wildcats locker room: “We’re not satisfied.”
Coach Sean Miller scrawled that message to his team after Arizona schooled Harvard 74-51 on Saturday, creating a wave of momentum that the team will ride all the way to Los Angeles for the Sweet 16.
We’re not satisfied.
Call them confident. Call them fired-up on defense. Call them hot. Say the Wildcats are playing their best ball of the season — including during that 14-0 start.
“I think it’s better now,” said Arizona senior Kevin Parrom.
“I think we’re more consistent on defense. It starts on defense. That’s what Coach always emphasizes, especially now in March. The best teams in March are the best defensive teams. And that is something we’re doing well.
“We’re all coming together as a team, and it’s wonderful right now.”
Did somebody say it starts on defense?
