The Arizona Wildcats are expecting big things next season in Tucson, and few teams in the country will have as much talent as the 'Cats do. While all eyes will be on the incoming freshmen class that is ranked in the top-three nationally, it's important to remember there will be quite a few upperclassmen who will make their case for national awards.
The two expected leaders for UA, Mark Lyons and Solomon Hill, were given invitations to the nation's most prestigious camp for college athletes on Friday.
Lyons and Hill are two of 20 players in Las Vegas for the LeBron James Skills Academy this week. Arizona fans know very well of what Hill can do on the court, but they are unfamiliar with Lyons who transferred over from Xavier in recent months. According to this latest tweet from Tracy McDannald, Lyons is looking like a man on a mission against some tough competition.
Big difference as a communicator on the floor compared to former #ArizonaWildcats PG Josiah Turner. Lyons is much more older, polished of course.
Many have said this team will only go as far as Lyons takes them, and it's imperative that he become comfortable with his new teammates in a hurry. The news of him being a strong communicator on the court can only mean good things, and we'll hope this transfers over to practices and games in a few months.
