Tucson, Ariz - The UA Athletics Department will not hold an official Regional Championship Celebration on campus
this Sunday, March 25, 2001 when the Wildcat Basketball Team returns from San Antonio. The
basketball team is on a charter flight and no official flight plan or itinerary has been filed. The team is
not expected to arrive until after midnight at the earliest. Because the team members have classes
early Monday morning and a short preparation week before the Final Four, a late night official
celebration would seriously hamper team preparations for the week.
A Final Four Send-off Celebration is currently being discussed. Once the team departure day and time
is solidified for the Final Four, if time permits, we hope to have a send-off celebration from campus.
For the safety of the team and because of airport construction hazards, fans are discouraged from
greeting the travel party at the Tucson Airport. Please help the team by allowing them to resume
normal activities this week and prepare to win a National Championship.
