In two seasons on the Arizona Wildcats roster — let’s not call it two seasons, because it hasn’t really been that — Allonzo Trier has played 1,332 minutes. That’s only a little bit more than North Carolina’s Justin Jackson lasted this past season alone. So maybe it’s understandable that Trier decided he had unfinished business as a college basketball player and determined he would return to Arizona for his junior season in 2017-18 rather than enter the NBA Draft. Trier made the decision Thursday, with a source telling ESPN’s Jeff Goodman that Trier would return to the Wildcats and his mother telling Bruce Pascoe of the Arizona Daily Star that Allonzo is “all-in” at Arizona. "He is committed to bringing home a national championship," Marcie Trier told Pascoe by text. "He loves his teammates and his fans." Trier and his teammates didn’t come as close as they’d hoped in 2017. The Wildcats were the No. 2 seed in the West Region but upset by No. 11 seed Xavier in the Sweet 16. That was after they’d shared the Pacific-12 Conference regular-season title with Oregon and defeated the Ducks in the Pac-12 Tournament championship game.
