photo Wildcats blow out Beavers by 34

Stoudamire, Adams score 20 each

To say Salim Stoudamire was on fire in the first half of last night's one-sided win against Oregon State would be an understatement.

Led by Stoudamire's 20 points, the Wildcats (12-3, 4-2 Pacific 10 Conference) disposed of the Beavers with relative ease in McKale Center, 109-75.

After knotting the game at 28 late in the first half, Oregon State looked to be keeping pace with Arizona's high-powered offense. But the final 6 minutes belonged to the Stoudamire and the Wildcats, who reeled off a 20-6 run to close out the frame. [Read article]

Sophomore Jones comes through in clutch for Wildcats

The Wildcat women's hoops team was horrible from the free throw line until it mattered most.

Sophomore guard Natalie Jones, an 80 percent free throw shooter on the season, drained four shots from the line in the final 17 seconds as Arizona ended the game on an 11-1 run to overcome the Oregon Ducks 70-66 last night in Macarthur Court.

"It's all mental," said Jones of her final shots from the stripe. "Our coach tells us when you're on the free throw line you're by yourself and it's the easiest shot to take." [Read article]

photo Men's Hoops Analysis: True tales from the stat sheets

To the lucky group of UA students hanging from the McKale Center rafters during Arizona's 109-75 win against Oregon State - in the nosebleed paradise otherwise known as section 125 - numbers like this will never, ever lie.

  • No. 14 Arizona (12-3, 4-2 Pacific 10 Conference) converted 65 percent of its attempts from the floor, including 46 percent from 3-point range

  • The Wildcats grabbed 39 boards to their opponents' 28, tossed away seven blocks to their guests' goose egg, and outscored the visitors 81-48 to close out the game after the contest was knotted at 28 with six-and-a-half minutes to go in the first half. [Read article]

    photo Icecats: Thin UA lineup takes on No. 8 Weber State

    Needing a split against a team that dominated them a few months ago, the Arizona Icecats will once again play undermanned, missing suspended and injured players - most notably their lead defender and workhorse goalie.

    No. 15 Arizona (9-7-2) flies to Utah today to face No. 8 Weber State (16-9-1) in the first of a two-game set in Ogden. The Wildcats beat the Icecats 6-2 and 4-2 in November.

    In the season thus far, the Icecats face WSU at less than full strength, without two players suspended for today's game because of their roles in the large brawl following Arizona's last game, against No. 4 Lindenwood. Sophomore forward Mike Pollock and sophomore forward/defender Banks Concepcion are out and senior captain and defender Keith Mitchell "tweaked his ankle in that fracas," according to Icecats head coach Leo Golembiewski.
