I have seen quite enough of Arizona and Sean Miller in the post season. Aloof, flatfooted, disinterested. This guy cannot prepare the talent he is blessed with to play in the tourney. Looks like another early exit for the Wildcats. Trier looks like it's his first collegiate game. 16 minutes 0 assists. Wow.

These types of teams like Wisconsin who bounced his cats twice and St Marys are difficult to prepare for, will give him the 1 day to get ready excuse, but your point is taken, instead of getting a top flight point guard he continues to get game managers and multiple guards that all do the same thing. See McConnell and Gabe York. His teams play extremely tight on offense when he is a higher seed and Rustic saved them in the first half.
They had that kid a few years ago that went nuts against Duke when they were a 5 seed and his Xavier teams always exceeded there seed line.
And why Kobi Simmons has been reduced to under 10 min a game I'll never know. There offense really looked bogged down last nite.

Miller has a lot of Billy D in his blood -- control freak on offense, call a play nearly every time down the floor, especially when shit goes awry. Says he wants his kids to run but after a missed three in transition, he's got them running 3-man weave till everyone touches the ball. They actually looked fluid in PAC-12 tourney because they really didn't care. But like Polar said, STM tough to prep for.

What I found interesting is that Arizona scrimmages against St. Mary's at the beginning of the year. Except this year they didn't because of some scheduling conflict. Either way, Miller should know them and everyone short of Freshman should. They won, but showed me the same tight demeanor I've seen too many times in the postseason.
