Sonoran Hot Reads: Kaleb Tarczewski's senior advice to his younger self

Only one home game left for the big man

Casey Sapio-USA TODAY Sports

Only one home game remains for Arizona Wildcats mainstays Kaleb Tarczewski and Gabe York. With the regular season winding down, ESPN talked to a bunch of seniors from around the country, asking what advice they would give their younger selves. This is what Tarczewski had to say:

One of the most important things would be to be comfortable with who I am as a basketball player. It's something I think a lot of people struggle with. You want to be the guy, the star, scoring points. But sometimes you just have to be comfortable with who you are and help the team in any way you can. That's the most important lesson I've learned in four years.

I'd also tell myself to get in the training room more and get more treatment. My legs would feel much better these days.

I'd certainly attribute Zeus' success this year to his increased self-confidence and feeling more comfortable in his role. It's been a good run for these guys, and hopefully they can close it out with two-straight wins

- Why are they going for two-straight? Because York hit a late-game three to beat Cal on Thursday night. He had some pretty hilarious things to say about it afterwards

- Is Cal still the team that's better-built for March?
