The NBA Western Conference Finals are more than six months away but McKale Center may hold a preview of things to come on Sunday when the Phoenix Suns host the Houston Rockets in the PacifiCare Shootout.

Formerly known as the FHP Shootout, the game will showcase three future Hall of Famers in the Rockets' Hakeem Olajuwon, Charles Barkley and Clyde Drexler.

Tickets can be purchased anywhere from $12 to $35 (Call 621-CATS). The game tips off at 5:30 p.m.

Last season, the Suns defeated the Shaquille O'Neal-led Los Angeles Lakers.


The fifth-ranked UA men's golf team won its second consecutive Taylor Made Red River Classic at the Brookhaven Country Club in Dallas. The Wildcats finished the three day tournament with a 10-over-par 874, five shots ahead of second-place teams Houston and Georgia.

Individually, Rory Sabbatini and Andy Barnes tied for third at even-par 216. Other Wildcat finishers were Derek Gillespie in 10th place, Tim Beans tied for 41st and Scott Moore tied for 51st.

By the Numbers


Fans. Or, the all-time UA volleyball home attendance record at McKale Center, set on Sept. 23, 1994 against UCLA. The record may fall tonight, though, thanks to the fact that fans that show up for the volleyball game can retain their seats for Midnight Madness, which is set to immediately follow the game.
