I don't follow international basketball at all, but after their elite freshman trio of Mannion/Green/Nnaji all leaving for the NBA, Sean Miller is filling his roster next year of mostly international players.

Arizona brings in ten new players next year: a grad transfer, two sit-one transfers, an American '20 grad and SIX international players with Turkey, Lithuania, France, Mexico and Estonia represented.

Saint Mary's is known for their Australian connection, but Gonzaga is the king of international recruiting.

Interesting strategy by Miller and their squad.

NCAA doesn't know how to translate, so wiretap conversations are meaningless.

Oh, wait.........they already were meaningless according to the NCAA
NCAA is gonna loze the Power 5 programs because the NCAA provides zero value to those conferences, wiretapping translations or not. LoL

Arizona signed Lithuanian twins Azuolas and Tautvilas Tubelis.
Azuolas is considered by many to be the top European prospect of 2020 signed with an American college.

Still waiting on our own Lith Coach Hurley. ;)
I did mention this to him at the meet and greet when he came to UConn. He immediately mentioned playing with a talented Arturas Karnisovas (now VP of Ops with the Chicago Bulls) at Seton Hall back before the Euro boom.
