Rodgers eligible for play in 2002

Head coach Lute Olson was able to give a sigh of relief yesterday, when freshman guard Chris Rodgers was deemed eligible by the NCAA to play in the 2002-2003 men's basketball season.

The ruling ended a three-week waiting period and reinstated the 6-foot-3 native of Portland, Ore., to four years of eligibility.

"We're pleased with the NCAA's ruling," Olson said. "With Chris' initial eligibility approved, we can now move forward with preparations for the upcoming season." [Read article]

Time for Pac-10 to get respect

I know it's early in the season, but check this out.

The SEC and Big 12 ÷÷ two of the most respected and best football conferences in the country ¸ are 0-10 against Top 25 teams this season.

You might also find it interesting that the ACC has won just one game against the Top 25 out of eight games thus far.

Again, it is early in the season and when it comes down to it the SEC is arguably the best top-to-bottom conference in the country, but something should be said about the Pac-10 and its six ÷÷ count ╬em six ÷÷ teams in the Top 25, (No. 9 Oregon, No. 11 USC, No. 13 Washington, No. 16 Washington State, No. 20 UCLA and No. 23 California) with Oregon State knocking on the door in 28th position.

Football Notes

Until the win against Utah on Saturday, the last time the Wildcats had won a game that was decided in the closing minutes was midway through the 2000 season ÷÷ a 53-47 triple overtime win against Washington State.

However, after the Wildcats' 23-17 win against the Utes, UA got some much needed experience in winning close games. This could be crucial heading into Camp Randall to play No. 22 Wisconsin (4-0) Saturday. Of the Badgers' last 16 wins, six of them have been fourth-quarter comeback victories, including a 24-21 victory last week against Northern Illinois. [Read article]

photo Freshman Glass earns Pac-10 Player of the Week honors

UA freshman volleyball player Kim Glass was rewarded for her efforts over the weekend yesterday by being named the Pacific 10 Player of the Week.

Glass becomes only the second freshman (Barb Bell 1993) and 17th player in UA history to earn the award.

"She is playing terrific right now," Arizona head coach David Rubio said. "She still has so much to learn and so much room to grow as a player. She is already great, but she can get even better." [Read article]

Women's golf sets team record

Fighting the dense fog, the Arizona women's golf team shot the lowest team score yesterday with a 10-over par 298 in the 2002 NCAA Preview.

The score put the Wildcats in a tie for third place with Duke at 21-over for the tournament. Oklahoma State is the leader with 13-over par.

"I'm really impressed with the way our golfers hung in there today," UA head coach Greg Allen said. "Their effort did not go to waste. We're right where we want to be ¸ in striking distance heading into the final round." [Read article]
