Former Cats put on show to raise dough

During his pregame introduction at yesterday's Lute Olson All-Star Classic, former Wildcat Jason Terry jumped on the scorer's table. To a chorus of cheers, he was mimicking what he did after Arizona's 1997 win over Kansas in the Sweet 16. He continued to wow the crowd by scoring 38 points in the game.

Terry and the Blue team lost to the White team though, 125-123, in the classic, part of the celebration of the 100th anniversary of Arizona basketball. Khalid Reeves led the way for the White team with 25 points, including 13 of his team's final 22. [Read article]

Academic setbacks force forward to leave school

It's a mere two months before the opening tip-off, and the Arizona men's hoops team has suffered its first major setback of the season with the departure of one of its few returning big men.

When Arizona takes to the Lute and Bobbi Olson Court on Nov. 5 to square off in the annual Pepsi Red-Blue game, the Wildcats will be without the services of forward Chris Dunn. A 6-foot-6 redshirt freshman out of Hobbs, N.M., Dunn is no longer enrolled at the UA, making him ineligible to play this season. [Read article]
