Miller behind the scenes: 'Bring the muscle'

Sean Miller praises Arizona players and puts Saturday's hard-fought win over ASU in perspective.

Saturday's win over ASU was a big one for Arizona, and not just because it came over a team that came into the game tied with the Wildcats in the Pac-12 standings at 3-1. Rivalry game. Tough road atmosphere. Big swings.


Sean Miller told his players as much after the game in the locker room, using his short and sweet post-game address to praising the Wildcats for their practice habits, being "the tougher team," winning in Tempe for the third time in the seniors' careers and making progress toward the team's bigger goal of a conference title.


Freshman Brandon Ashley earns some special mention, of the good news, bad news variety.
