Reeves chosen 12th in NBA draft
Former UA standout Khalid Reeves was chosen with the 12th pick in the first round by the Miami Heat in last week's NBA draft.
He became the seventh UA player to be drafted in the first round of the NBA draft, following Larry Demic in 1979 (9th overall), Leon Wood in 1984 (10), Sean Eliott (3) and Anthony Cook (24) in 1989, Brian Williams (10) in 1991 and Chris Mills (22) last year.
UA last in Pac-10 graduation rate
The UA has graduated only 49 percent of its student-athletes who were freshmen in 1987-88, the lowest rate among Pacific 10 Conference schools, according to an NCAA survey released recently.
Washington State University in Pullman, Wash., has also graduated 49 percent of its student-athletes from that class.
The survey also states that the UA has graduated only 49 percent of its general student body from that class, ahead of only Arizona State, which has graduated 46 percent of its student body.
Stanford led Pac-10 schools in both categories, graduating 81 percent of its student-athletes and 93 percent of its student body.
The average of the almost 300 Division I schools in the survey was 57 percent for student-athletes and 56 percent for general students.

Bronander, a cross country runner who graduated recently with a degree in biochemistry, and Hughes, a high jumper who graduated with a degree in interdisciplinary studies, each received a $5,000 scholarship from the NCAA.
Bronander has said he will enroll in medical school at the UA, while Hughes said she will attend the Thunderbird Graduate School of International Management in Phoenix.
Singelyn appeals reduction
Todd Singelyn, a junior right-hander on the UA baseball team, filed an appeal about two weeks ago about a reduction in his scholarship for next year.
The reduction means that his scholarship will go from covering 74 percent of his tuition cost to covering only 16 percent.
A hearing has not yet been scheduled on the matter. NCAA rules stipulate that a school must make a ruling within two weeks of an appeal.
Singelyn was 0-2 with an 8.80 earned-run average this season for the 15-40 Wildcats.
