Welcome to the Arizona Wildcats Mens Basketball 2007-08 Preview!
To do it up right, we invited Josh Gershon, senior editor and columnist for Goazcats.com, and Michael Schwartz, Men's Basketball Beat Reporter for the Arizona Daily Wildcat. This round-table discussion with two Arizona Wildcat experts yielded some great insights into the upcoming season.
Topics of the discussion were as follows (click the link below to listen):
1. The season officially starts this Tuesday against NAU. How has the team looked in their two warm-up games so far? How has Lute Olson’s absence affected the team thus far?
2. This year's team starts off ranked #17 in the AP poll, and as high as #11 in others' predictions. However, the Cats were ranked fourth in the Pac-10's media poll. How good can we realistically expect this team to be?
3. Who will be the team's breakout player this year? Who will make the biggest impact on this team over the course of the season?
4. How does this team's non-conference schedule compare to the rest of the Pac-10, and will that be an advantage or disadvantage going into Pac-10 play?
5. How will this team finish in this year’s power-heavy Pac-10 conference? What type of seeding should fans expect come tournament time? How far can this team go?
