photo Good news after bad week

After a week of turmoil within the Arizona football program, it has been all positive since Saturday's 52-41 victory against California. Not only did the Wildcats win their first game against a Pacific 10 Conference foe this season, but the team should actually be healthier for its next game, in two weeks against Arizona State.

Defensive end Young Thompson, defensive tackle Vince Feula and cornerback Darrell Brooks, all of whom were restricted to limited action, are expected to be active against the Sun Devils. [Read article]

Commentary: No good reason for Mackovic to resign

Despite what you might have heard prior to this weekend from the media, and even some players, John Mackovic did the right thing by apologizing to the UA community Wednesday. And winning the Cal game has nothing to do with it.

After more than 40 of his players complained to President Pete Likins about Mackovic and the coach scheduled a press conference for the next day, some media members speculated that he would and thought that he should resign. The logic seemed to be that if he had lost the support of almost half his players, he hadn't done his job. [Read article]

Polk, Wheeler combine for 38 points in 100-72 exhibition rout

Liz Pickney has played many games inside McKale Center, but never from the visitors' bench until yesterday.

The former UA forward played 23 minutes and scored two points to go along with five rebounds as her squad, Team Concept, fell to Arizona 100-72.

The blowout victory also marked the first time associate head coach Denise Dove Ianello was at the head seat on the UA bench. [Read article]

photo Game Analysis: Unselfishness will take women's hoops far

They share minutes. They share points. They share everything.

When they put it all together, good things happen and will continue to happen.

After yesterday's 100-72 rout of Team Concept, several things were set in stone.

This team cares, and plays for each other.

It doesn't matter that Arizona didn't receive one vote for the Top 25 in either preseason poll.

What matters is that each player knows that her teammates have her back. This team proves that unselfishness is just not measured in assists. [Read article]

photo Volleyball seniors sweep home finale

At times this season, the UA volleyball team has played down to weaker opponents.

However, in two games over the weekend against Oregon and Oregon State the bottom two teams in the Pacific 10 Conference the Wildcats showed their true colors, as they swept both teams in McKale Center in the team's final home matches of the season.

With games against No. 2 Southern California and No. 19 UCLA this week, the Wildcats wanted to build momentum on senior weekend. [Read article]

photo Icecats snap Rams' winning streak

Colorado State came into Tucson this weekend with a 10-game unbeaten streak.

They left demoralized and battered, following a 7-2 punishment at the hands of the Icecats on Saturday night. The win came on the heels of an 8-1 blowout on Friday over the same Colorado State squad at the Tucson Convention Center.

"Colorado State was a good test after a tough weekend last weekend," head coach Leo Golembiewski said. [Read article]

UA Rugby wraps up fall season

The UA men's rugby team finished up its fall schedule with a weekend split against two of California's toughest squads.

The Wildcat club team traveled to the Golden State to battle St. Mary's Moraga and Stanford.

On Friday, the Wildcats suffered their first defeat of the fall when they were upset by the Gaels of St. Mary's Moraga by a score of 41-28.

"We agreed as a team that we could have won if we had just played a little tougher," said head coach Dave Sitton. [Read article]
