Arizona 104 - Team Georgia 81: Room for improvement


Cats' full-court press takes toll in final preseason warmup

This year's edition of the Arizona men's basketball team might not be used to running the entire game, but the strategy last night in McKale was the old press style: 40 minutes of Hell.

The Wildcats pressed Team Georgia throughout, interchanging lineups constantly to provide fresh legs on the court, and defeated Georgia 104-81 in their final exhibition matchup in front of 14,694. [Read article]

Man on a mission: Senior Adams set to fill leadership role

photoUnfinished business.

That's the reason

Arizona fans will still be able to enjoy the high-flying antics of senior forward Hassan Adams this season.

The Los Angeles native, whom many thought would choose to forgo his senior season following a stellar performance in the 2005 NCAA Tournament, has returned to Tucson for the 2005-06 campaign of Arizona men's basketball after deciding not to put his name into the NBA draft hat. [Read article]

It's discrimination, stupid


Banning gay marriage is an embarrassment given the tenets grounded in our Constitution, offensive to our notions of an egalitarian society and is unacceptable given the ideals we claim to espouse.

Be that as it may, Congress, our would-be defender, intends to amend the Constitution in order to protect our marriages and ultimately protect us from (gasp!) homosexuality.

A Senate subcommittee led by Sen. Sam Brownback, R-Kan., recently passed a measure aiming to ban same-sex marriage that may make the Senate floor next year. [Read article]

It seems like the perfect vehicle for a romantic farce starring Jack Black, Kirstie Alley or some other overweight comedic actor. Here's the premise: An aging, portly man down on his luck and desperate for some green, tries his hand at the gigolo business.

Scouting out his prospective clients, being the ever-astute statistician, he tries to improve his chances of scoring a meal ticket by not just sending out one letter of seduction but two, both to women who reside in the same town. He also uses the same letter verbatim, recycling the same sweet nothings but being careful enough to switch names when appropriate. [Read article]

The UA's Pride of Arizona marching band will be hosting its 52nd annual Glassman Foundation University of Arizona Band Day on Saturday, where high schools from all over the Southwest region come to "bring it" - marching band style. [Read article]
