Senior guard Hassan Adams will start Saturday at Utah after being arrested early Sunday morning and charged with disorderly conduct at a West Side apartment complex.

Adams, Arizona’s leading scorer and team captain, was cited and released for disturbing the peace after he became non-compliant and refused to leave the area at the Exchange Luxury Student Apartments, 2800 W. Broadway, where Adams lives, according to a police report. [Read article]

Graduation ceremony undergoes only 'tweaking'

This month's commencement ceremony will have few changes compared to last year, which was marked by a heated battle to keep the December ceremony from being canceled, officials said.

Planning has gone much more smoothly this year, unlike last year's roller coaster ride that left organizers scrambling at the last minute to get information about the event out to the public, said Alexis Hernandez, associate dean of students and chairman of the commencement operations team.

Cats seek rebound against NAU


The No. 24 Arizona men's basketball team looks to regain some of the momentum it lost during the beginning of the season when it faces NAU tomorrow night at 7:30 in McKale Center.

In Saturday's 69-65 loss to Houston, the Wildcats (2-3) had their ups and downs, falling behind by 18 at one point only to battle back several times, but ultimately falling short.

"We definitely feel a sense of urgency right now," said junior center Kirk Walters, who scored one point in the loss to the Cougars. "We did during the (EA Sports) Maui (Invitational), but we did not play our best basketball against Houston. So we have to step it up, and we've been doing that in practice. It was a real tense day (Monday), and we just have to keep that up." [Read article]

The Wildcat tackle's the best (and worst) of the semester

The silent issue of sobriety

Used by the British to combat loneliness and malaria in the tropics, alcohol is simultaneously man's best friend and his greatest bane.

At the UA, it is hopelessly ingrained in the college mentality. Alcohol abuse is quickly becoming our issue of the year - an issue more celebrated than shunned. In fact, the per capita consumption of alcohol at the UA is enough to fuel the Coors Light train three times over. [Read article]

We all have our own "skeletons in the closet," so to speak. As much as we try to avoid it, family dysfunction seems unavoidable, especially this time of year as we go home to spend the holidays with family members and remember the problems of our roots.

Some opt for therapy while others creatively express their dark pasts, which is what fine arts graduate students John Clarke and Celeste Trimble have done for their photo work exhibits. Both artists have examined their lineages to explore their own individual family disorders, and they present those issues through photography and sculpture. [Read article]

Fire twirling, sword swallowing on club's weekly agenda

There's a little pyromaniac in all of us. Blame our caveman instincts, but our fascination with this force of nature - both destructive and life-sustaining - starts with childhood, where experiments with a Zippo lighter and your mother's industrial-sized can of hairspray gives you hours of fun and, if you're lucky, a brand-new set of eyebrows.
