Arizona pummels Cal, leads by 30 in 2nd half

Arizona men's basketball head coach Lute Olson mentioned earlier this week that the fourth No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament was there for the taking for his Wildcats.

It all depended, he said, on how a few teams perform in their respective conference tournaments this weekend.

With an 83-66 win over California (13-16, 6-12) yesterday in first-round action of the Pacific 10 Conference Tournament, Arizona made its own case for a top seed at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. [Read article]

The Wildcats (15-0) take the field today for the UNLV Tournament in Las Vegas, and then travel to Fullerton, Calif., for the Kia Klassic March 18-20.

Diving heads to Oklahoma City for Championships

The stakes are high, and the players seem ready.

The divers on the Arizona swimming and diving teams hope to join their NCAA- qualifying teammates at the Zone E Diving Championships today in Oklahoma City, Okla.

The competition is crucial, as it determines which divers will move on to the NCAA Championships.

Arizona head diving coach Michele Mitchell-Rocha said seniors Daniela Bemme, Claire Febvay and junior John Collier will be the main attractions looking for a berth. "Daniela, John and Claire have been there before, but it's still going to be tough for them to qualify," Rocha said. Mitchell said that each of the three divers is in a good place right now, staying healthy and injury-free. [Read article]
