Arizona signee Chance Comanche committed to Arizona back in September. Since his pledge to the Wildcats, the Southern California native has wrapped up his senior season and continues to stay active in the gym so he’s in the best possible shape for summer workouts.
“Everything has been going well,” Chance said. “I just finished up the season, so I’ve been preparing for the summer.
“My off-season progress is coming along well, too. I’m focused on getting stronger and keeping my conditioning right. I’ve also been working on my post game and getting up shots from all over the floor.”
The 6-foot-11, 205-pound Comanche has turned his focus on watching his future program advance through the Pac-12 Tournament and prepare for March Madness.
Comanche was able to watch Arizona in the Pac-12 tournament and felt the Wildcats' defense allowed them to secure the title.
“Their team defense is what mainly caught my attention,” Comanche said. “Coach Miller really preaches defense to the team, which helps create easy offense, and that’s when you see a lot of transition buckets.”
Winning 11 straight games has Comanche believing Arizona can appear in its first Final Four since 2001.
“I have Arizona making the Final Four," he said. "I know they’re capable. I want to say they’ll win the whole thing, but March Madness is always unpredictable.
“I think T.J. McConnell is going to be the key to their tournament success. He’s been excellent for them all season and if he plays well, Arizona is a tough matchup for anyone.”
