    Trier is the #2 guard (he's a SG) in the nation on Hoopniks and joins Top 15 guys Justin Simon (combo guard) and Ray Smith (SF).

    http://hoopniks.com/nations-no-2-guard-allonzo-trier-to-arizona/

    All of them are 5* on Rivals, where Smith is the #10 prospect, Trier is #12 and Simon is #23.

    On ESPN, all are 5* with Trier #19, Simon #23 and Smith #26.

    You get the idea.

    Arizona has the best class in the nation right now and is going to finish no worse that Top 5. Miller is stocking national championship level talent every year now.

    Not surprising. Zona is the top destination school in the west

    It's to be expected. Good news is we'll have a team filled with talented upperclassmen in 15-16 and Zona could lose 4 key players after this year. They'll be very young in 15-16.

    Well, of course they are. A bit surprised at just how little drop off there was after Lute retired. Miller has the best gig in the country provided he can keep winning. Access to the best recruits in the West and no density in competition this side of the Mississippi. Allure of the NBA the only thing that he should ever consider leaving for, and history shows you should really only do that if you want a few years of ridiculous money before a soft landing back in college.

    UA should be our highlighted games every year. The team needs to play their best ball win or lose because when the rest of the country ever pays attention to Pac-12 basketball there is one and only one program they use as the measuring stick.

    Something wrong if they don't get a national championship in next 3-5 years if recruiting continues at this level.

    That's tough. All it takes is one bad game, and you get bounced.

    How does Arizona do it? Tucson sucks so much.

    Agreed, but I hope you're just joking and don't actually believe the city matters much for elite recruits. They're not picking a retirement destination. It's a one or two year pit stop and a means to an end.

    Also, NBA-level guys might as well get used to working somewhere that may not exactly be their first choice to live given that they have no control over where they are drafted.

    This. Plenty of "Nope!" towns in the SEC, but a strong program with history behind it and a coach who knows what he's doing will have some pull.

    Quit acting like you're surprised. We do it because we are Arizona. No one west of the Mississippi can touch us. Get used to it son.

    This is why I hate the internet. The personas that certain folks adopt are so sad. This was a respectful and complimentary thread, but you come with what you did. Beyond that, this "son" crap is such an inappropriate way to talk to one of the older people on this board. I pity you. At least you have chosen a great college basketball program to cheer for so that you can tell yourself that it somehow reflects on you and you're able to pretend to have a reason for self esteem.

    Yes you were respectful. The geezer I responded to was not.

    I can't hate Arizona as long as Sean Miller is there. He was so totally classy and welcoming when the Buffs won the PAC XII tourney the first year we were in it that I'll never dislike him.

    If you dislike Miller than you should also dislike Tad

    Similar philosophies on the game, for sure. There's a group of Tad, Miller, Krystkowiak and Romar that come from a similar place. Hopefully they'll all stay a long time and dominate things like Pac-12 rules/competition committee.

    Better alert PGU. Someone on Allbuffs said Tucson sucks, send in the Arizona self-affirmation police.

    Will just make beating the *********** that much sweeter. They will be favored in every game they play for the forseeable future. The top target of the P12 for all teams to gun for.

    Yeah though that didn't work out too well for you guys last year, until Cal got lucky after Brandon Ashley got hurt.

    Dinwiddie was a bigger loss for us. Our talent isn't nearly as deep as yours. Margin for error is less. So we lost Dinwiddie and also lost Fletcher. Gordon also missed a bunch of time after he took a spill on some ice and wasn't the same the rest of the year. Honestly, that Buffs team we had after the trip to Washington was a shadow of the Top 20 team it had been. Still able to get a road win at Stanford to finish the year, though, and go .500 in the league after losing Dinwiddie. I'm still not sure how they managed that.

    Yeah I agree, that injury really sucked. I hope he does well in the NBA.

    And they say there is no "rivalry". The mention of anything UA brings them out of the woodwork.

    I'm getting more confident for this season as time goes on. Tad got this team to play .500 ball in conference without fletch and spenc, with Gordon hurt too, and now we've added two solid players. We won't have as high a ceiling as last year, but damn, we are deep.
