photo Recuperating Wildcats visit former powerhouse Houston

After almost a week off to ponder its troubles on offense, the No.15 Arizona men's basketball team travels to Texas to take on Houston tomorrow at 5 p.m. at Hofheinz Pavillion. The game will be broadcast on ESPN2.

The Wildcats (2-2) have struggled with hitting their shots early in the season, with the exception being the second half Sunday night against Virginia (66.7 field-goal percentage), when Arizona showed glimpses of a renewed shooting touch. [Read article]

A slice of bacon: Is Duke really better than us?

For those students who never received the memo from the Associated Students of the University of Arizona, this was the year of the student section.

The Zona Zoo was supposed to erupt this year with the new section on the north side of McKale Center, reserved just for Coronado's finest.

The problem with the student section is, well, it is a weak student section.

I had a discussion about this with former Arizona Daily Wildcat Sports Editor Maxx Wolfson on Wednesday, and through that conversation I have come up with some ideas about how to improve our Zona Zoo in McKale Center for, hopefully (and I'm crossing both fingers and toes on this one), the last time.

photo Volleyball treks to chilly Utah first round of NCAA Tourney

With any luck, the No. 6 Arizona volleyball team grew accustomed to chilly temperatures from the cold snap that hit Tucson this week.

The Wildcats are going to experience more of the same when they travel to Salt Lake City to take on Utah State tonight at 8 in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.

"All the people on my team, especially those from Arizona, pretty much freak out when we go anywhere cold," said senior middle blocker Angie Ayers. "But to them, cold is cold, no matter if it's 20 degrees or 50 degrees. There's people on my team that think 60 degrees is scarf time." [Read article]

2005 Fiesta Bowl Classic: Wildcats set to host Fiesta Bowl Classic

The Arizona women's basketball team has stayed true to its run-and-gun style through four games this season, forcing turnovers with a relentless full-court press and running the court for easy buckets.

The missing ingredient has been 3-point shooting, as the Wildcats (2-2) have shot a measly 22.7 percent from behind the arc.

They look to improve those numbers in the annual Fiesta Bowl Women's Basketball Classic this weekend in McKale Center. [Read article]

Men's Basketball Opponent Analysis: Cougars breathing life again after 'Phi Slamma Jamma'

Following the years of Guy Lewis and his 14 NCAA Tournament appearances, which included the years of "Phi Slamma Jamma," featuring Clyde Drexler and Akeem (later Hakeem) Olajuwon, the Houston Cougars have sunk into college basketball obscurity.

However, with second-year head coach Tom Penders, a man with a penchant for rebuilding struggling programs, at the helm, Houston is back on track to regaining at least some of its previous luster. [Read article]

Icecats take on Weber State without leading goaltender

After a weekend off from competition, the No. 12 Arizona men's club ice hockey team hosts No. 6 Weber State for a two-game series this weekend in the Tucson Convention Center Arena.

Both today's and tomorrow's games begin at 7:30 p.m.

Weber State (13-2-1) comes into the series having beaten No. 11 ASU four times on its way to six wins over ranked opponents.

"They're a good and very physical team," said Arizona head coach Leo Golembiewski. "They've been a juggernaut, really." [Read article]

Robert Cheseret earns Pacific 10 Conference athlete of year honors

Junior Robert Cheseret has been named the Pacific 10 Conference's Cross Country Athlete of the Year for the second straight season, the conference announced yesterday.
