photo Walk-on just one of the guys early in season

In this edition of Dave's Diary, David Bagga, a freshman walk-on this season with the Arizona men's basketball team, talks about his first career points, the team's trip to Hawaii and planning homework around a road trip.

On his 3-pointer in Sunday's game against Virginia, his first career points in an Arizona uniform:

It felt great, there's really no way to describe it. I kind of came off a pick, and the guy didn't really guard me. The coaches have been telling me "If you're open, shoot it," so I shot it and I thought it might have a chance to go in, and it did. [Read article]

Editor's Note: This is the second part of a two-part series looking at the Arizona football team as it concludes its 2005 season. Yesterday's story addressed the team's departing seniors and the impact they'll leave on the program in years to come.

The Wildcats are shooting 39.8 percent from the field this season. Accept it.

photo 2005 Arizona Footall Season Review: Youth, depth gives football reasons for hope

On paper, year two of head coach Mike Stoops' time with the Arizona football team looked a lot like year one.

The Wildcats finished 3-8, with one win over a top-25 opponent, one win over Division I-AA Northern Arizona, two Pacific 10 Conference wins, a handful of close calls and tons of starters coming back the next season.

"We're a 10-times-better football team than we were a year ago," he said after the team's 23-20 loss to ASU Friday. "We're a lot closer than we were at any point last year. I can say that losing." [Read article]
