Game Analysis: How sweet it is

TEMPE ¸ There is no doubt for the rest of the season: The Wildcats will be heckled on the road about the "Candygate" incident.

Saturday night was no different as Sun Devil fans showered the UA players with candy bars after UA's 20-point victory. Even though none of the candy bars hit any of the Arizona players, some were thrown back into the yellow-clad ASU student section.

Ironically, it was the Sun Devil players that looked like they had been a little too close to the snack bar, as they were a step slow in the second half. It showed that they were missing another star player to complement freshman Ike Diogu and are still a few players away from catching up with the Wildcats. [Read article]

photo Defense doesn't rest as hoops routs Devils

Arizona head coach Joan Bonvicini insists that her team will have to play physical and tight defense to be successful come tournament time.

If Saturday's 72-52 win over intra-state rival Arizona State in McKale Center was any indication of things to come, it's not a huge reach to expect to see the Wildcats deep in the NCAA tournament.

"We were going to be in their face from the get go," said Bonvicini. "As we wind down the regular season, that is what it is about; defensively, you have to be aggressive." [Read article]

photo Icecats sock Devils in senior send-off sweep

Playing in front of more than 6,000 fans at the Tucson Convention Center on Saturday night, the Icecats' trio of departing seniors wanted to leave a lasting impression in their final home contest.

This might not have been exactly what they had in mind.

Seniors Matt Naylor and co-captain Bill Pardue were ejected for their part in a brawl behind the Icecats' net with just under eight minutes to go and the No. 6 Arizona Icecats (23-4) clinging to a 3-1 lead over in-state rival No. 19 Arizona State. [Read article]

After being swept 7-0 by the Trojans on Friday, Arizona dropped an emotional Saturday afternoon bout with the ninth-ranked Bruins.

Looking to avenge Friday's sweep, the Wildcats started Saturday strong, winning all three doubles matches and earning the first point of the afternoon.
