Hoops evens record in McKale opener after rough road trip

If the No. 9 Arizona men's basketball team was expecting to cure its shooting woes last night against Virginia, it needed to wait 20 minutes before the nets in McKale Center started heating up.

The Wildcats defeated Virginia 81-51 last night, avenging a loss Arizona took against the Cavaliers at University Hall last season, thanks largely to a dominant second half in which the team shot 66.7 percent from the field. [Read article]

Confessions of a vegetarian


Gee whiz, I admire herbivores! And hypocrisy can be a hoot as well.

Thanksgiving is a day for giving thanks. Yeah, I did that, but I took it step further. I had a revelation. After over two decades of living on this planet, it finally hit me - I am a vegetarian.

While enjoying a healthy plate of succulent caramel ham and a sizzling, sizable helping of juicy, oven-baked turkey, it suddenly became obvious.

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]

More than 7,000 bike in 23rd annual El Tour de Tucson

As the sun rose over the Santa Catalina Mountains on a chilly Saturday morning, thousands of bicyclists - young and old, experienced and novice - geared up for a daylong adventure.

The adventure: a winding, hilly, dusty 109-mile journey around the perimeter of Tucson, starting and ending near the Tucson Convention Center to raise money for Tu Nidito Children and Family Services, the American Parkinson's Disease Association and the Global Sports Alliance. [Read article]
