first_img Evan Mobley, No. 1 prospect in Class of 2020, commits to USC “It’s going to be hard for us to win a game with I think the limitations that we have at the moment,” Miller said (per 247Sports). “We have to keep working and get better, have great days of practice and individual players have to keep improving.“We have more firepower and, as everybody in this room knows, we’re not a blessed offensive team even with Brandon, but I do think we have much more of an ability to score and be efficient when he’s a part of our team.” Williams, who averaged 11.4 points, 3.4 assists and 2.8 rebounds in 26 games last season, is expected to return for the 2020-21 season as a redshirt sophomore if he can remain healthy.“I’ve overcome obstacles before in my life and will work with our strength and medical staffs to overcome this one,” Williams said in a statement. “I’m dedicated to continuing my work in the classroom as a student, and I look forward to supporting my teammates and coaches as I spend this season focusing on my health.”Miller acknowledged that Arizona will have to make adjustments offensively to balance the loss of Williams.
