Analysis: Wildcats' advance is no accident


BOISE, Idaho - In reaching its fourth Sweet 16 in five years, the Arizona men's basketball team was the only No. 3 seed to make it past the first weekend of the NCAA tournament, but it wasn't by accident.

The Wildcats advanced by beating Alabama-Birmingham 85-63 in the second round Saturday and Utah State 66-53 in the first round Thursday.

The Wildcats defeated the Blazers with strong second-half shooting, stifling defense and reliance on more than their two senior stars - Channing Frye and Salim Stoudamire - to handle some of the offensive load. [Read article]

Greek philanthropists should get their hands dirty

While some suggest that community service and philanthropy should be mandatory for all UA students, many choose to help out voluntarily. The greek system's efforts to help out the less fortunate are widely known, but it's time those efforts became a little more service and a little less party.

Philanthropy is one of the main goals of any fraternity or sorority. Greeks at the UA and across the country constantly battle stereotypes. One of the most effective ways for greeks to escape the reckless partyer image is by helping others. These activities not only support worthy causes, but are also designed to instill stronger characters in fraternity and sorority members. Unfortunately, this rarely involves fraternity and sorority members rolling up their sleeves and doing some hard work for those less fortunate. In fact, many of the events don't seem to involve sleeves at all. [Read article]

The language barriers in the United States speak loudly for those who exist in smaller countries, like Bosnia-Herzegovina.

In his ongoing mission to help bridge language, cultural and social barriers between the United States and Europe, Semezdin Mehmedinovic will share his poems, essays and short stories at the UA later this month.

Born in the northern Bosnian town, Tuzla, in 1960, Mehmedinovic moved to Sarajevo in 1979 to study comparative literature and library sciences at the University of Sarajevo, graduating in 1983. [Read article]

Hookah offers safe and relaxing alternatives

College students are always looking for the newest, hippest and easiest trends to keep their bored little minds occupied. While smoking weed will always be fashionable, it's illegal too. As an alternative, locals, young and old, are getting together to smoke the legal way, with the help of the hookah.

The pastime has become even more popular in Tucson since Roger Smiley and his wife Sarah opened Smiley's Ultimate Hookah Lounge and Coffee last year. [Read article]
