  • Hardwood History

      Expectations were high in Tucson as the Arizona Wildcats entered the 1987-88 season ranked #17 in the AP Poll.

      Lute Olson's squad was led by junior forward Sean Elliott and senior guard Steve Kerr.  The Wildcats were deep too.  Tom Tolbert, Anthony Cook and Jud Buechler would all go on to play in the NBA.   

      Arizona finished the regular season 31-2 boasting both the regular season Pac 10 championship and the Pac 10 Conference Tournament crown.  The NCAA Tournament Committee rewarded their regular season dominance with a No. 1 seed in the West Region.

      Two easy victories against No. 16 Cornell and No. 8 Seton Hall but Arizona in the Sweet 16.  Waiting on them was B.J. Armstrong and the No. 5 seed Iowa Hawkeyes.  After only leading by 4 at the half, Arizona blitzed the Hawkeyes in the 2nd half to cruise to a 20 point win. 

      North Carolina was the only thing standing between Arizona and their first ever trip to the Final Four.  Elliott and Tolbert combined for 45 points to put the Tar Heels to bed, 70-52.  Next stop, Kansas City.

      A disappointing loss to Oklahoma in the Final Four couldn't diminish the legacy of the '88 Arizona Wildcats.

      “We were a juggernaut, even if we didn’t know at the time. We had two McDonald’s All-Americans with Sean Elliott and Craig McMillan. Sean became college player of the year the following year and was the best player that year in my mind, and five players from that team went to the NBA. We were definitely a juggernaut, but it maybe wasn’t the blueprint you’d see from a Kentucky these days. We weren’t all blue chip, but we were a bunch of guys who turned out to be pretty good.”

      -Steve Kerr

Bear Down! Shorts rock

This is my 4th pair of 19 Nine shorts! That should tell you enough. As an AZ fan, I’m just waiting for more AZ shorts to drop! Home version of these? Red ones from this era or others? I’m here for it
