After a terrible first half in which the No. 24 Arizona men's basketball team could not score and did not defend, the Wildcats (10-5, 3-2 Pacific 10 Conference) clawed their way back but could not finish off the comeback in a 75-65 loss. [Read article]

Mandy Close ensured that the game wouldn't be just that as she exploded for 18 second-half points, and the Oregon State Beavers downed the Arizona women's basketball team 64-48 on their home court last night.

The senior guard, who added six rebounds and three assists to her game-changing effort, poured in a career-high 24 points for the Beavers (7-6, 1-4 Pacific-10 Conference), who snapped a 16-game Pac-10 winless streak dating to Jan. 13, 2005. It was also the Beavers first win over Arizona in six games. [Read article]

Former Wyoming head coach to assist at UA

Dimel, 43, worked with Mike Stoops at Kansas State when both served as assistants for Bill Snyder from 1992 to 1996. [Read article]

Gymcats hope youth brings championships

A delicate balancing act of uneven ages, vaulting hopes, exercises in patience and all-around good times await the 14-member squad of the 2006 Arizona women's gymnastics team.

"This is a totally new era," said Arizona gymnastics head coach Bill Ryden.

Only seven veterans remain from the squad that finished in fourth place at the South-Central regional competition last year.

With seven freshmen coming into the season, Ryden knows it will take time before his younger girls adapt to dealing with the fears and pressures that come with being on a college gymnastics team. [Read article]

The Arizona men's club hockey team looks to rebound from a frustrating winter break this weekend against a team it swept earlier this season at the University of St. Louis.

The puck drops at 7:30 tonight and tomorrow night in the Tucson Convention Center Arena.
