TUCSON, Ariz. (KGUN) — Arizona men's basketball closed out its regular season in style, beating Cal 89-61 on Saturday in the team's final game at McKale Center—before a postgame celebration recognizing the team's Pac-12 regular season championship.
Arizona clinched the title after its win over USC on Tuesday. It's the program's first Pac-12 championship since 2018.
The team came together on the court wearing red championship T-shirts and addressed the electric crowd before cutting down the nets.
It was also Senior Day at McKale. The team honored Justin Kier, a grad transfer and backup point guard who is Arizona's lone senior player.
"I came here for this, and I couldn't imagine another group. I love this group," Kier said after the game.
The team now will prepare for the Pac-12 Tournament next week in Las Vegas, where the Wildcats will be the top seed.
The team will learn its NCAA Tournament seeding on Sunday, March 13.
