Arizona's basketball program took a big hit Tuesday when freshman forward Aaron Gordon and junior guard Nick Johnson entered the NBA draft. But this offseason's developments may turn into a win for the Wildcats, overall.
Rondae Hollis-Jefferson. Brandon Ashley and Kaleb Tarczewski are now expected to stay in school, solidifying Arizona as one of the top teams in the country in 2014-15. Incoming freshman forward Stanley Johnson will help coach Sean Miller's program reload, making the Wildcats the clear favorites in the Pac-12 and national contenders.
Meanwhile, California made an intriguing move, hiring Tennessee coach Cuonzo Martin to replace the retiring Mike Montgomery.
In the process, the Bears apparently have landed a Tennessee recruit, 7-foot-1 center Kingsley Okoroh. That could enhance Utah's chances of signing Austrian center Jakob Poeltl, who has been a Cal target. Pac-12: Arizona loses two players, Cal gets coach
