Arizona trails by 11 early, pulls away late, paced by Walton's near triple double

LOS ANGELES ¸ Hassan Adams watched from the bench as Southern California jumped out to an early 9-0 lead against Arizona.

Once the freshman got his chance in front of his hometown crowd, he made the most of it, sparking No. 2 Arizona's comeback.

Adams, along with freshman Andre Iguodala, was the difference in the Wildcats' (12-1,5-0) 81-72 victory in the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena last night. [Read article]

Freshmen fuel late game fire

For the first 20 minutes it was the Desmon Farmer show.

The junior from Flint, Mich., hit nearly every shot he took. Farmer netted 20 of USC's 48 points in the first half on 8-of-13 shooting and gave USC a quick 11-point lead.

But once again, in came "the stopper" also known as UA freshman Andre Iguodala.

For the second straight game, Iguodala came in and made the difference off the bench on the defensive end, helping Arizona to its 81-72 victory last night. Last game it was covering Washington's Doug Wrenn, last night it was Farmer. [Read article]

photo Basketball hangs on at home, beats USC

It was eerie how similar the two games were.

Less than five days ago, Arizona dropped a 60-59 decision to Washington after failing to close out the game with free throws. The Huskies eventually capitalized and made a basket inside the closing minutes to upset the Wildcats.

The Wildcats (11-4, 5-2) held on this time to beat Troy (6-11, 1-5), 79-76, last night at McKale Center in front of 2,395 people. The main problem once again came with missed free throws late in the game. [Read article]

Icecat coach vies for 500

The Arizona Icecats are used to winning and are always ready to add another victory to their total. That goes without saying.

But when the No. 7 ranked unit faces off with No. 20 Robert Morris College (Ill.) tonight, the desire to bring home a victory in this game ÷÷ more than almost any other ÷÷ will come out in full force, as the team has a chance to be a part of history.

Twenty-four seasons. Six hundred and sixty-two games. One team. One coach. One incredible milestone. [Read article]

UA Sports Briefs

No. 11 Gymcats collide with Beavers

Unlike other athletic rankings, collegiate gymnastic rankings are not based on wins and losses, but rather by meet scores.

So when it comes down to it, winning doesn't mean anything.

"But it's still in the back of our minds," said the team's lone senior, Nikki Beyschau.

After last season's loss to a lower-ranked Oregon State team, the Gymcats (1-0, 0-0) are looking for a little revenge tonight at home in their conference opener in McKale Center at 7:30. [Read article]
