Arizona was a bit disappointing this season as they ultimately fell to Xavier in the Sweet 16 after having the high expectations of making it to the Final Four. Those expectations will be the same for the 2017-18 season with the return of key players in Rawle Alkins, Dusan Ristic and Allonzo Trier as well as the additions of a five-star center in DeAndre Ayton and four other 4-star recruits. However, it looks like one player has already made his intentions clear for the 2018 NBA Draft of those returning:
Trier has been a leader and star for the Wildcats the last two seasons averaging 15.8 points, 0.5 steals 1.7 assists and 4.1 rebounds. He upped all of his averages in his sophomore season and improved his three-point shooting from 36.4 percent to 39.1 percent. If he continues that trend then there’s no reason to think that he won’t get drafted next year by a team in need of his solid 6’4″, 190-pound frame and leadership.
