A Statement from Sean Miller On The Start of the 2020-21 Season
Arizona basketball head coach Sean Miller released the following statement regarding yesterday's (Aug. 11) announcement from the Pac-12 to postpone competition until the end of the calendar year:
"The announcement made yesterday regarding the delay to the start of our season did not come as a surprise to our Pac-12 coaching group. Since the early part of April, we have been communicating regularly on several topics, including the 2020-21 season. The new start date gives our conference the best opportunity to have a successful season in the safest environment possible for everyone involved, especially the student-athletes.
We appreciate the leadership President Robbins has provided our campus during these uncertain times, and we are eager to welcome our players safely back to campus. Our staff is looking forward to utilizing the coming months to develop our team and build for the beginning of an exciting New Year."
