photo Center of attention

As the old saying goes, "Good things come to those who wait."

None could be truer for the women's basketball team and freshman center stand-out Shawntinice Polk.

Polk committed to the Wildcats in the fall of 2000 and the expectations of her were already high.

She came out of Hanford, Calif. as one of the top high school players in the nation and in four years at Hanford High School scored 2,163 points, grabbed 1,326 rebounds and had 384 blocks. However, all was not well for Polk. [Read article]

photo Second-year coach leads No. 6 Laxcats into promising season

Armed with a No. 6 ranking, probably the toughest schedule in the country, an up-and-coming-coach, eight returning starters out of 10 and one of the west's top defenses, the men's lacrosse team expects big things.

Coming off an eighth-place finish in the United States Lacrosse Intercollegiate Associates national championship tournament, where the team fell in overtime to eventual national champion Sonoma State after tying the game with one second left, the Laxcats are looking for more this season, which starts this weekend.

Arizona drops to second in AP Poll

In the world of college basketball rankings, it's all about "What have you done for me lately?"

The Florida Gators have been doing plenty lately, winning 14 straight games overall, including their first seven in Southeastern Conference play. That being said, the Gators took over the top spot in the polls yesterday for the first time in school history.

Arizona dropped just one spot after Thursday's loss to Stanford. [Read article]

Hoops? Nah, it's about the golf team

Women's golf is on the rise, if you can believe it from last year, and thank Erica Blasberg for the help.

Don't recognize the name?

Well, if you check out the Golfweek national rankings, this little kitten would be at the top, putting her as the best college golfer in the nation.

Did I mention that she was a freshman? I guess putting this golfer through the hazing rituals will have to wait until her next bogey. [Read article]

photo One-On-one with Josh Pastner: From LeBron and back

Wildcat: All the talk in the basketball world has been about LeBron James. What is your take on his situation and him as a player?

Pastner: First off, I am not allowed to directly comment about LeBron James because he is still a recruit. All I can say is that I would rather see a young player be influenced from the outside with shoes and clothes if it is going to keep them away from gangs and drugs. If playing basketball gives them a window to stay off the streets and do the right thing, then I am all for that. [Read article]

Rugby splits opening weekend in league play

Reserve Hadley helps team salvage California road trip

Pat Hadley didn't exactly expect to play in the Men's Rugby A team's match with UC Santa Barbara.

In fact, Hadley, a junior flanker, had just played in the B team's match, but 20 minutes later he was called up to fill in for an injured teammate.

"It's the most I've ever played," Hadley said. "I was just doing my best, it was all the teammates that stepped up." [Read article]

UA Sports Briefs

The Arizona men's tennis team was displeased with its low ranking to begin the spring season and decided to do something about it.

The 62nd-ranked Wildcats hit the road this past weekend with their first opportunity to prove to the country that they are a lot better then their pre-season rank.

The task that lay ahead of them was to defeat No. 31 San Diego State and No. 48 San Diego.

Both matches went to the finish, but the Wildcats were able to pull both upsets. [Read article]
