LOS ANGELES — Arizona just got done playing against Ohio State’s Aaron Craft, one of the best point guards in the country. Next season, the Wildcats will have a Craft of their own.
Get ready for the T.J. McConnell era.
Coach Sean Miller will have his fifth starting point guard in as many seasons at Arizona, but the first who closely resembles who he was as a point guard at Pitt more than 20 years ago — a pass-first guy who can accurately be described as a floor general. Like Craft is to the Buckeyes.
McConnell (6-1, 190) had to sit out this season as a transfer from Duquesne, but he was part of many spirited practices, going against Mark Lyons and the Arizona starters.
