The Arizona Wildcats will not return to the NCAA Tournament in 2018-19, coach Sean Miller said on Monday.
Miller, a former college basketball player who went on to play for the US Olympic basketball team in Rio de Janeiro, said he was informed by the school’s athletics department late on Monday that the Wildcats had not received an invitation to the 2019 NCAA Tournament.
Miller said that Arizona is not going to attend the 2019 Final Four.
He said the Wildcats will make the trip to Chicago to face the Illini on Tuesday and then will travel to Wisconsin for a matchup with the Badgers on Wednesday.
The Wildcats lost their NCAA Tournament bid in the 2016-17 season, falling to the top-seeded University of Minnesota.
