Just a couple of months into the 2020-21 Arizona Basketball season, head coach Sean Miller is making drastic changes to his starting line-up.
It wasn’t the best week for Arizona Basketball or Sean Miller last week, as the Wildcats were swept at home by the Los Angeles schools. In those losses, Arizona looked over-matched and outmanned.

Certainly tough to overcome if you’re Arizona, however, in a year where the Wildcats won’t be playing the NCAA Tournament due to a self-imposed ban, consider ourselves fortunate.
With eyes on the future, now is the time to focus on development and build towards next year. It appears that with the recent line-up changes, Sean may feel the same way too.
Just as Arizona loses Baker, Miller announced that he will be changing things up to the starting line-up. Yes, it is partly out of necessity because of the injury to Baker, however, with the team losing to USC and UCLA, now would be a good time to change and get others valuable playing time and again build towards next year.
At least for the immediate future, this is what the Wildcats’ starting line-up will look like…
Outside of that, Christian has played well as of late, and Brown has been a bit inconsistent, to say the least. There’s no harm in making those changes now, and who knows, perhaps this leads to a spark the team needs.
At Zona Zealots, we are curious to see what these roster changes bring and hope the team can step-up and respond! As always, Bear Down, Arizona!
