Basketball program hopes recruit can win appeal of partial qualifier status

After being classified as a partial qualifier, freshman men's basketball player Chris Rodgers hopes to follow the path of women's basketball freshman Shawntinice Polk and gain full eligibility.

During the Wildcat's media day Thursday the common theme among the players was about improving on last year's 5-12-1 record.

A total of 18 freshmen and sophomores are locked and loaded for what will be their first time in Arizona jerseys. With so much youth, however, leadership and experience are not lacking. Four juniors and seniors will provide the guidance for the underclassmen. [Read article]

Baseball owners await next move from players

Owners and players take a break from public posturing to meet for last-minute talks.

NEW YORK Just four days before baseball players were scheduled to strike, the sides stopped their public posturing and instead devoted yesterday to a series of meetings that went on late into the night.
