Sonoran Hot Reads: Arizona adds exhibition game against College of Idaho Coyotes

An interesting tie-in for this exhibition game

Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports

As the Arizona Wildcats 2016-17 schedule continues to sort itself out, one of the exhibition games was set. The College of Idaho Coyotes announced that they will be travelling to Tucson to take on Arizona on November 1st. "Under Sean Miller, the University of Arizona program has been one of the elite programs in all of college basketball," Coyotes head coach Scott Garson said. "To be so consistent year in and year out speaks to how well-coached they are and the tremendous talent they continue to bring in with each recruiting class. It will be a great challenge for our program to compete against one of the more storied programs in the land and in front of one of the five best home crowds in Division I basketball."
