photo 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]

photo Women's hoops begins break with tough games

The Arizona women's basketball team jumps into the meat of its schedule this weekend as a three-game road trip precedes the start of conference play during winter break.

The Wildcats (4-2) play nine games during the break, beginning Sunday at No. 9 Maryland, a game that may be the team's toughest test of the season thus far.

Entering tonight's contest with Monmouth, the Terrapins (6-1) have scored more than 100 points in consecutive games and average 94 points per contest, outscoring opponents by 31.6 per game. [Read article]

Commentary: Glory days: Best worst of UA sports

After 2 years with this crazy paper, I get this space to write whatever I want.

I would love to be profound, but that's not my thing. So without further ado, here are Mandy's Marvels.

These prestigious awards cover 3 years of Arizona sports: my favorite (and some not so much) sports-related moments, both as a sportswriter and a fan.

UA male athletes with the hottest moves

  • Michael Johnson, football - Johnson once took down Southern California superman Reggie Bush from behind when Bush was in a dead sprint for the end zone. So hot. [Read article]

    High-seeded Wildcats face 33-2 Ohio in Sweet 16

    The Arizona volleyball team may have dodged a bullet thanks to Stanford's home loss Saturday in the second round of the NCAA Tournament, but that doesn't mean a trip to the Final Four is in the bag.

    Although the No. 4 seed Wildcats (24-5) are the only seeded team left in their bracket, the competition is not about to get any easier, as Arizona takes on No. 15 Ohio (33-2) in the Sweet 16 round on Friday at 8 p.m. in Palo Alto, Calif. [Read article]

    photo Men's basketball notes: Olson bringing 3-out, 2-in system back to play action

    Given the Arizona men's basketball team's clear shooting woes through its first five games, it didn't take a 23-year head coach to decide that the offense needed a change.

    Even so, coach Lute Olson said he's decided to do some tweaking after the Wildcats shot only 34.4 percent from the field in their 69-65 loss to Houston on Saturday.

    Olson said a complete makeover isn't in order, only that the team will go back to its 3-out, 2-in system that thrived in years past. [Read article]

    photo Sun Devils make their second visit to Tucson

    In a series that usually makes for some of the most exciting ice hockey and the best home crowds of the season, ASU returns to Tucson to meet the No. 12 Arizona men's club ice hockey team on Friday and Saturday.

    Both games start at 7:30 p.m. at the Tucson Convention Center Arena.

    This weekend will mark the third and fourth meetings between these teams in a span of six weeks. The Icecats (10-3) split its first series with ASU (4-8) Oct. 28-29 [Read article]

    Cheseret led UA men to solid year

    For the No. 4 Arizona men's cross country team, the season hardly finished the way it started when the Wildcats placed 10th overall at the NCAA Championships on Nov. 21 in Terre Haute, Ind.

    Still, it was a successful season for the Wildcat men, who took first in four of eight races this season, including the NCAA Western Regional on Nov. 12, where they snapped Stanford's streak of 10 consecutive first-place finishes. [Read article]
