Courtney Ramey meets with Media, discusses Arizona Basketball

Since coming to Tucson, Texas transfer Courtney Ramey met with media to discuss Arizona Basketball and his role with the Wildcats. 

Big things could be on the horizon in Tucson for 2022-23, especially as incoming transfer Courtney Ramey adapts to his new role with Arizona Basketball.

It was several weeks ago that Ramey was still undecided about his basketball future. After all, the Longhorns guard was still going through the NBA Draft evaluation process, meanwhile, still looking at several schools to possibly transfer to.

Luckily for us, Ramey formed several bonds with current Wildcats (most namely Kerr Kriisa), as well as watched game film from every team he was considering last season.

However, the biggest thing Courtney saw with the Wildcats was potential fit. “Arizona did a good job from the beginning of just recruiting me and just showing me their vision of how they view me with the team.”

Ramey picked the Wildcats this past June and comes to Arizona with extensive experience having played in 128 collegiate basketball games at Texas while starting in 106 games for the Longhorns.

Likely to see an increased role with Arizona Basketball in 2022-23, Courtney Ramey is ready to team up with the Wildcats and win.

So far, Ramey has been excited to team up with his new backcourt teammate and friend, as Courtney is ”just gonna do wherever it takes to win,” he said. “I feel like if Coach needs me on the ball, I can do that. Anything else, I can do that.”

And if anything, what he brings to the Wildcats beyond his experience is versatility and tenacity. “Big 12 was a battle all four years I was in, especially last year,” Ramey said, “So coming in, I feel I can bring that here.”

Hoping to expand his offensive role in the offense-friendly Pac-12, Ramey is excited about teaming up with coach Tommy Lloyd and the Wildcats as “I think it’s gonna allow me to grow as an offensive player, having more freedom.”

Ramey comes to Tucson after averaging 9.4 points per game last season, and as he joins the Wildcats, Courtney should provide a nice shooting touch from beyond the arc having connected on 194 of 532 three-point attempts (36.5 percent).

He should have a big impact on the Wildcats and we are excited to see him join the team! You can watch his full press conference here!
