We are still a few months from the upcoming Arizona Basketball season, and the Wildcats’ roster looks to be quite stacked for 2022-23.
Things have not slowed down on the recruiting trail for Arizona Basketball. Despite a somewhat slow start, the Wildcats have turned things around as the roster is beginning to take its form just head of the 2022-23 season.
As we are all familiar with by now, it is that the Wildcats lost Bennedict Mathurin, Christian Koloko, and Dalen Terry to the NBA Draft, Justin Kier to graduation, and Shane Nowell to transfer.
Luckily, Tommy Lloyd and the Wildcats have done a nice job in bringing in more players and talent to fill in the gaps left by Mathurin, Koloko, and Terry.
So far, Arizona has added Serbian wing Filip Borovicanin and highly-touted Estonian big man Henri Veesaar for 2022-23, but beyond that, they also brought in Campbell wing Cedric Henderson Jr. and Texas shooting guard, Courtney Ramey.
The latest surprise is Kylan Boswell. Originally a commitment in the class of 2023, Boswell announced just days ago that he will be joining the Wildcats a year early, and his addition helps bolster and solidifies the Wildcats’ backcourt.
And with the Arizona Basketball roster likely done adding pieces at this point, we provide an updated look at Arizona’s possible starters/rotation for next season.
Starters (based on who’s currently on the roster)
Point Guard – Kerr Kriisa
Shooting Guard – Courtney Ramey
Small Forward – Pelle Larsson
Power Forward – Azuolas Tubelis
Center – Oumar Ballo
Bench (based on who’s currently on the roster)
Guard/Forward – Cedric Henderson Jr.
Guard – Adama Bal
Guard – Kylan Boswell
Forward/Center – Henri Veesaar
Guard/Forward – Filip Borovicanin
Forward/Center – Dylan Anderson
Now, again this rotation is purely a guess on our end and does not necessarily mean this is what Tommy Lloyd will go with, after all, Pelle could easily come off the bench and Cedric could get the start in his place.
Either way, the roster looks a lot better now than it did two months ago, and this team could still very well contend for a conference championship with the pieces that they have added. There is a lot to be excited about this coming season.
