Lute Olson – University of Arizona Basketball

ESPN is reporting that Lute Olson is stepping down as the head basketball coach at the University of Arizona, reportedly for health reasons. I attended the U of A, starting in 1986 – a year after Lute Olson took over there. In 1988, he took the first Arizona team to the Final Four, and the U of A has been a basketball powerhouse ever since.

I wish Lute all happiness, and thank him for the great memories.

It’s been a while since I thought about this, but look at the roster of the 1987-1988 Wildcat team:
Sean Elliott (San Antonio Spurs)
Tom Tolbert (several NBA teams, including Golden State)
Steve Kerr (Chicago Bulls, San Antonio Spurs)
Kenny Lofton (pro baseball)
Anthony Cook
Matt Muehlebach
Jed Buechler
Harvery Mason
J Turner
Casey Bergman
