After guiding the Arizona Wildcats to their biggest turnaround in program history, women’s basketball head coach Adia Barnes has signed an extension through the 2023-24 season, the UA announced Friday. The Daily Star reported last week that Barnes will earn $400,000 in 2019-20 and a $25,000 retention bonus after each season. That is a sharp pay raise from the $235,000 Barnes earned in 2018-19, but it is well deserved. The UA alumna led the Wildcats to a 24-13 record that saw them claim the WNIT championship and break program and Pac-12 attendance records by selling out McKale Center for the WNIT championship game. It was UA’s most wins since 2003 and represented an 18-win improvement from the year prior, the largest increase in school history. Arizona returns its entire starting five in 2019-20 plus adds some interesting newcomers, setting them up for another successful season. – Ryan Kelapire, azdesertswarm – Read More
