Polk's jersey to be retired

In the wake of the death of Shawntinice Polk, Arizona women's basketball head coach Joan Bonvicini said Polk's jersey will be retired on Feb.18, coinciding with the team's last regular-season home game.

Commentary: Tuitama, Thomas catching on quickly

Montana and Rice. Aikman and Irvin.

Tuitama and Thomas?

To mention Arizona's teenage tandem of Willie Tuitama and Mike Thomas in the same breath as two of the most recognizable quarterback-receiver combinations in NFL history is premature, to say the least.

But please excuse Arizona fans if they get a little excited after Saturday's 29-27 win at Oregon State.

Two weeks removed from talk of a possible 1-10 season after a tough loss to Stanford, Arizona found new hope in rain-soaked Reser Stadium behind the freshman Tuitama's 335 yards and two touchdowns through the air, as he spread the ball to seven different receivers. [Read article]
