Men's Hoops: Cats edge Cougars in OT

Frye nets career-high 26 points in close win

It almost happened again.

But this time, Ivan Radenovic and the

No. 9 Arizona men's basketball team escaped with a 57-56 overtime victory over Washington State at Friel Court last night.

As Derrick Low's last-second 3-pointer clanked off the front rim and Radenovic clutched the rebound, the Wildcats were less jubilated than they were relieved, knowing they were almost swept by Washington State for the first time since the 1982-83 season. [Read article]

Cats claw back into second place in Pac-10

Three Wildcats finished in double-digit scoring, and the Arizona women's basketball team pummeled Washington State 89-60 last night in McKale Center.

The Wildcats (19-9, 11-6 Pacific 10 Conference) find themselves in a four-way tie for second place in the conference with ASU, Oregon and Southern California.

photo Baseball: Rierson returns to rotation after medical redshirt

A year ago, Sean Rierson was just like any other college student - working at a restaurant to make money to pay for college.

Now he's making his bid for a starting spot in the No. 9 Arizona baseball team's starting rotation.

The fifth-year senior, who spent last year as a medical redshirt while recovering from Tommy John surgery, makes his first start of the season Sunday when the Wildcats (10-1) host UC Riverside (5-6) for a three-game series at Sancet Stadium. [Read article]

The Alicia Hollowell Ride to the Record Book stops in Waco, Texas, today for the Compass Bank Invitational. Just don't count on the Arizona ace to join the rest of the No. 1 UA softball team.

At least, not with a stat sheet in tow.

"The thing is, we really don't worry about records and breaking records," said Arizona assistant coach Nancy Evans. "We actually don't worry about that at all. All we worry about is winning games." [Read article]

photo Gymcats climb back up, take on UCLA, Georgia this weekend

After six falls last week against Oregon State, the Arizona gymnastics team is hoping to pick itself off the mate.

The Gymcats travel to Los Angeles to take on No. 2 UCLA and No. 8 Georgia Sunday in Pauley Pavilion.

Despite the Gymcats' first home loss of the season against the Beavers, the team moved up one spot in the rankings to No. 17.

Because the team scored 194.300 points last week, above their season average of 194.271, they were able to move up in the standings. [Read article]

photo Tennis teams look to end recent skids

The Arizona men's tennis team has a tough challenge ahead of them this weekend.

The No. 26 ASU Sun Devils (3-1) and Wildcats meet today in Tempe at 1:30 p.m., with Arizona expecting ASU to have revenge on its mind.

"We're expecting ASU to be fired up," said Arizona head coach Bill Wright. "But so are we."

The Wildcats beat the Sun Devils twice last season.

Arizona (5-3) is coming off a rain cancellation in California last weekend, as well as losses to No. 30 California and No. 18 Stanford the weekend of Feb. 12-13. [Read article]

Track tackles championship meet

Following a largely successful indoor regular season, the Arizona track teams travel to the University of Washington for the Mountain-Pacific Conference Championships today and tomorrow.

The meet, held in Washington's Dempsey Indoor in Seattle, follows a team score format, meaning the men's and women's teams will compete as a single squad against other universities, including UCLA, Stanford and Oregon. [Read article]

Women's Swimming: Wildcats capture two Pac-10 swim titles

In the 50y freestyle, three swimmers made the finals for the Wildcats as junior Jenna Gresdal placed third (22.77), junior Marshi Smith finished fifth (22.98) and freshman Courtney Cashion finished seventh (23.00). [Read article]
