Arizona Basketball tips off Friday night against Cal Poly, and the Old Pueblo is breathless with anticipation to see what the 2013-14 season has to offer.

Coming into the season ranked No. 6 in the Associated Press poll and No. 5 in the USA Today basketball coaches poll, it's safe to say that expectations in Tucson have reached a fever pitch.

Friday night's 8:06 p.m. MT tipoff will officially usher in the Aaron Gordon era, but how long said era will last is unknown.

It was a decade ago when the 'Cats came into the 2003-04 season with their highest-ever ranking in the AP poll at No. 4. The roster was stacked with future NBA stars in Andre Igodaula and Channing Frye with Hassan Adams, Salim Stoudamire and Mustafa Shakur pitching in. Head coach Lute Olson's squad went on to a disappointing season at 20-10 and 11-7 in the Pac-10. They were the No. 9 seed in the NCAA Tournament and lost in the first round to Seton Hall.

The 2003-04 season is a cautionary tale of how irrelevant the preseason rankings can be and what Sean Miller and company will need to do to avoid the same fate of that squad.

Without further ado, here is the complete breakdown of what to expect in the coming season from the Wildcats' 2013-14 men's basketball team.
