    ‘Cats will play consolation round in Georgia

    The UA men’s basketball team will play its final two Dick’s Sporting Goods NIT Season Tipoff games in the consolation bracket in Athens, Ga., next week.

    The Wildcats (1-1) will play Mississippi Valley State (0-4) Monday at the University of Georgia’s Stegeman Coliseum at 3:45 p.m. Tucson time. They will take on Santa Clara (1-2) at 3:45 p.m. on Tuesday.

    Santa Clara played in McKale Center earlier this week and lost to both Alabama-Birmingham and Mississippi Valley State.

    Arizona had the opportunity to go to the Final Four of the tournament at Madison Square Garden in New York City, but lost 72-71 to UAB Tuesday night.

    The Wildcats were not able to host the four-team consolation tournament because the UA women’s basketball team has a game scheduled against Texas A&M on Tuesday night in McKale.
