The 2011–12 Arizona Wildcats men's basketball team is representing the University of Arizona during the 2011–12 NCAA Division I men's basketball season. The Wildcats, led by third-year head coach Sean Miller, play their home games at the McKale Center and are members of the Pac-12 Conference. They finished with 23–12 overall, 12–6 in pac-12 play. They lost the championship game of the 2012 Pac-12 Conference Men's Basketball Tournament by Colorado which hurt their chances to qualify for the 2012 NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Tournament, instead they were invited to the 2012 National Invitation Tournament which they lost in the first round by Bucknell.
