Since 1988, with the exception of a small downturn when legendary Coach Lute Olson got sick, the University of Arizona men’s basketball program has been one of the best in the country.

Now, after a decade’s absence, the Wildcats are again the top-ranked team in the nation. U of A Athletic Director Greg Byrne said the impact around Tucson is noticeable.
