Arizona inducts Josh Green, Zeke Nnaji to McKale Center Ring of Honor
In a weekend homestand against Utah and Colorado, which the No. 8 Arizona Wildcats swept, two former players were inducted into the McKale Center Ring of Honor.
Josh Green and Zeke Nnaji were celebrated on consecutive home games with both players enjoying a quick reprieve from their NBA commitments for the All-Star break.
Green was inducted first, during the Wildcats’ 88-62 win over Utah on Thursday. During his induction ceremony he was flanked by his Dallas Mavericks teammates Dwight Powell and Maxi Kleber.
