What a change of fortune for Salim Stoudamire.

Just a game after being benched for the last 14 minutes of the Arizona State game, the sophomore shooting guard scored a career-high 32 points as the No. 1 Wildcats outscored No. 6 Kansas by 30 points in the second half en route to a 91-74 win Saturday at Allen Fieldhouse in Lawrence, Kan.

"I think we proved to the world that we're the number one team," said Stoudamire, who was 12 for 18 shooting and 6-of-9 from behind the arc. "This is a measuring stick, and now we know where we stand." [Read article]

Softball talent of today meet stars of yesterday

A normal day at Arizona's Hillenbrand Stadium usually doesn't include some of UA's most talented alumni battling against Arizona's 2003 squad.

Then again, a normal game in an Arizona uniform öö no matter how long ago one played for UA head coach Mike Candrea öö does entail tradition, camaraderie and a hopeful chance of being able to add another national championship banner to the outfield wall of Hillenbrand Stadium. [Read article]

Commentary: Wildcats prove worthy of hype

I don't know how many times I heard, "Why is Jason Gardner on the baseline on defense?" during Saturday's game at Kansas. The 1-3-1 zone that Arizona has been using in the last few games has allowed Gardner to get out on the shooters in the corners, rather than drawing out the forwards and centers to the corners, allowing the paint to open up.

Gardner's incredibly tough nature allows him to get rebounds, strip the ball and compete with the Nick Collisons by getting down low and under the big men, preventing them from getting position. [Read article]

Post game ice packs on the shins, knees, shoulders and arms.

That sounds like a typical postgame activity for UA football and basketball players.

But tennis players?

That was how Arizona sophomore tennis player Maja Mlakar celebrated after a match against Marquette Friday.

Mlakar has spent the past two months battling shin splints, and she just returned to the court this past week.

Last year's top player for the Wildcats is now playing at the No. 3 position for Arizona, which for the time being gives the Wildcats one of the strongest rotations in the Pacific 10 Conference. [Read article]

photo Tennis triumphs in opener

Arizona trumped Santa Clara's redemption card Saturday as the UA men's tennis team served up a victory in its season-opening meet, 6-1.

The Broncos were looking to avenge a loss to the Wildcats two years ago in Tucson, but UA had other ideas.

After falling behind early in doubles play, Arizona made a strong rebound, sweeping all six singles matches and defeating the Northern California school. The loss dropped the Broncos to 1-1 for the year. [Read article]

Gymcats stifled in Seattle

Gymcat head coach Bill Ryden knew Washington was tough at home, but he never would have guessed they were as good as they were Friday.

UW's team total of 197.000 is their second-best score in team history, as they beat both Arizona (194.650) and San Jose State (193.275).

"They were really good," said Ryden, who is now 0-4 against the Huskies in Seattle. "Even their coach said he couldn't believe how good they looked." [Read article]

Icecats deep freeze their competition

The No. 7 UA Icecats have never been known to have trouble scoring. The story was the same however for No. 11 Saint Louis, as the Icecats dropped the Billikens on Friday and Saturday, 10-6 and 12-7.

The road trip is the Icecats first action away from the confines of the Tucson Convention Center since a 4-2 victory over No. 5 Delaware on November 9.

The win brings the Icecats overall record to 17-4, with a 2-2 record away from home. Since losing to Delaware 4-3 on Nov. 8, bringing their overall record to 3-3, the Icecats have been virtually unbeatable, the lone loss a 6-5 setback at the hands of rival Arizona State. [Read article]

Wildcat women outstanding in weekend wins; men fall, but show they can hold their own with competition

He may still be getting used to campus, but Lyndon Ferns is having no trouble in the water for the UA men's swim team.

The freshman swimmer from South Africa, who transferred to Arizona just this spring, was spectacular this weekend as he posted three victories in his first swim meet for the Arizona men who fell to the No.1 ranked Stanford Cardinal 160-66 on Friday afternoon. [Read article]

Track brings individual honors home

The men and women of UA track and field, always looking to reach new heights, traveled north this weekend to compete in the Wisconsin Elite Invitational.

The Camp Randall Sports Center on the campus of the University of Wisconsin was the site on Saturday for UA track and field to continue their early season success. Competing against teams from the University of Wisconsin, Marquette and Indiana State, the Wildcats finished the meet winning seven events. [Read article]
