Arizona freshman guard Allonzo Trier will be returning to Tucson for his sophomore season according to Matt Ensor, the Associate Director of Communication Services at the UA.

“After talking to Coach Miller and my family, I have decided to return to school for my sophomore season,” Trier said in a press release.

The freshman averaged 14.8 points per game in his freshman season. 

"I am ecstatic about Allonzo's decision to return to school for his sophomore year," said head coach Sean Miller in a press release. "I believe he will become one of college basketball's elite players next season."

Trier missed seven games with a hand injury during Pac-12 play and finished third among league freshmen in scoring.
