Get the inside scoop on your favorite team:
Adams, the team's leading scorer, issued a statement through the university apologizing to the coaches, university and the Wildcats' fans.
''I accept the coach's decision to be suspended from the Pac-10 tournament,'' the 21-year-old said. ''I wish the team well and hope for its success. I'm looking forward to participating in the NCAA tournament if Arizona is invited.''
The Wildcats (18-11, 11-7) play Stanford (15-12, 11-7) in the Pac-10 tournament quarterfinals Thursday at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
Tucson police pulled over a car driven by Adams for speeding early Sunday and said they noticed signs he was intoxicated.
Police said two breathalyzer tests showed a blood-alcohol level of 0.12 percent. The legal limit in Arizona is 0.08.
Adams had missed a 3-point attempt in the final shot of the Wildcats' 70-67 home loss to Washington on Saturday.
Adams is averaging 17.3 points per game this season, third in the Pac-10 behind Cal's Leon Powe (20.0) and Washington's Brandon Roy (19.6). Adams also leads the conference in steals with 2.69 per game.For more coverage of the Arizona Wildcats, check out GOAZCats.com.
