Wanting to hear it from the head coach

A comment by University of Arizona PG Nic Wise in this morning's Tuscon paper highlights the importance of communication between not only the assistant coaches and the players, but the head coach in particular.

Said the 5-foot-10 Wise, who considered transferring from UA after last season:

"Sometimes the assistant coaches showed more interest and all I wanted was coach [Lute Olson] (to say something). When it comes right down to it, it's not about what the assistants want, it's what coach O. wants. I had to be convinced.''
