Students awarded hoops section


After waiting nearly two decades, student basketball fans finally got their wish on Friday when the athletics department confirmed there will be a new unified student section for men's basketball games at McKale Center, beginning next year.

After months of negotiations, the Associated Students of the University of Arizona and Arizona Athletics reached an agreement Friday to add a student section that will stretch from floor to ceiling on the north side of McKale Center with general admission seating. [Read article]

Men's Hoops: Missed free throws, missed opportunity


Cats unable to overcome sharpshooting Huskies, UW 93, UA 85

SEATTLE - The Pacific 10 Conference title and Lute Olson's record for Pac-10 wins will have to wait.

The Pac-10's newest rivalry was as sizzling as ever, but so was No. 13 Washington, as it stopped No. 8 Arizona's seven-game winning streak with a 93-85 win in front of 10,000 raucous fans in Bank of America Arena.

The Huskies (23-4, 13-3) shot 65.4 percent from the field in the second half, as Arizona's comeback was foiled by four missed free throws down the stretch. [Read article]

Myth: Likins is enemy of the students

Some might call President Peter Likins the enemy of undergraduate education. Some students even say he's more alumni friendly than student friendly.

After all, from his office on the seventh floor of the administration building, students say, he can see the Alumni Plaza, but can he really be aware of what matters to students? Or just look at his past track record.

Over the past two years, it seems that the most significant changes and financial decisions at the UA focus solely on business and scientific research, not undergraduate education. Last week administrators announced a tuition hike and a slew of program fees for architecture, technology, business and engineering. For the past two years attention has focused on securing money for science buildings and funding for the improvement of science programs, including the new buildings for the biotechnology buildings in the Arizona Health Sciences Center. And on top of all this, proposals are sitting before the legislature right now asking for money for hydrology and health sciences. [Read article]

Sometimes it's fun to imagine that characters in Shakespeare's plays are real people. That, after the play is over, they go home, plunk down on their couches and flip on the TV. Othello likes "Fear Factor" and Hamlet is a big "Six Feet Under" fan. On Saturday nights their cell phones ring, and they're out the door.

But if Shakespeare's characters were real, I would also imagine that some of them wouldn't be as popular as the Prince of Denmark. On Saturday night Pericles sits alone in his studio apartment, waiting for the phone to ring, hoping that Lady Macbeth will invite him to the party. [Read article]

Hookah offers safe and relaxing alternatives

College students are always looking for the newest, hippest and easiest trends to keep their bored little minds occupied. While smoking weed will always be fashionable, it's illegal too. As an alternative, locals, young and old, are getting together to smoke the legal way, with the help of the hookah.

The pastime has become even more popular in Tucson since Roger Smiley and his wife Sarah opened Smiley's Ultimate Hookah Lounge and Coffee last year. [Read article]
