... Early NBA Draft Deadline
Arizona: It was a given that Sean Miller and the Wildcats were going to lose Lauri Markkanen early to the NBA draft, and the departures of Chance Comanche and Kobi Simmons were virtually irrelevant. The keys were that Allonzo Trier didn't even test the draft process and Rawle Alkins decided to return to Tucson. This gives Miller experience to go with an incoming freshman class that includes talented big man DeAndre Ayton. This might be Miller's best opportunity to get to the Final Four since he arrived in Tucson.
