photo Men's Hoops: Better than the best

Legendary UCLA men's basketball coach John Wooden visited the UA men's basketball team at practice yesterday as the winningest coach in Pacific 10 Conference history, with Arizona head coach Lute Olson right on his heels. By the end of this weekend, the top two names on that list may switch places.

"It's kind of ironic," said Olson about the timing of Wooden's visit. "Coach Wooden asked me a year ago if he could come here and watch a practice, and it just didn't work out." [Read article]
