Men's Hoops: Wildcats win Pac-10 Title

Senior guard Salim Stoudamire hit the game-winning shot again for the No. 11 Wildcats in a 70-68 victory over ASU in Tempe tonight.

Arizona (25-5 overall, 15-3 Pacific 10 Conference) took the ball down the court with 45 seconds remaining in the game. A missed shot tipped around and eventually ended in the hands of Stoudamire with 25 seconds to go, and no shot clock to worry about. [Read article]

ASUA debates focus on safety


In last night's debate, Associated Students of the University of Arizona presidential candidates Cade Bernsen and Jacob Reuben both stressed safety and security as a major concern for next year, but disagreed on other issues.

Other than safety, Reuben emphasized the importance of implementing a fall break and a universal class waiting list if he becomes president, while Bernsen highlighted his experience in the Texas Senate and promised to bring funding to the UA for services such as child resources for mothers.

Men's Hoops: UA still eyeing Pac-10 title


Devils, Cats battle to finish regular season

The No. 11 Arizona men's basketball team has one more chance to put itself in line for the Pacific 10 Conference title and solidify its postseason status.

The Wildcats (24-5, 14-3 Pac-10) travel to Tempe to take on ASU (18-11, 7-10) at 4 p.m. tomorrow.

With a win, Arizona forces Washington to sweep California and Stanford tomorrow to get a share of the regular season Pac-10 title.

"I don't think (head) coach (Lute Olson) will tell us (if Washington loses). If it does happen, like, they lose. I think it will give us that extra little initiative," said senior center Channing Frye, who hails from Phoenix. "But at the same time, I don't think we need anymore reasons to go out there and play the best we can." [Read article]

Reaffirming integrity's worth

The quiet rustle of blue books is the only noise to break the silence of the classroom. You're hastily scrawling answers when you notice it - the eerie but somewhat familiar feeling of someone else's eyes on your paper. You look up, only to catch a classmate's expression as he looks away, unconvincingly feigning innocence.

Such a scene may be fictional, but it's certainly not that far removed from the reality of higher education. The notion of academic integrity seems to be under siege, with the number of infractions seeing a marked increase in recent decades. Apparently, some students have what can most charitably be described as a casual relationship with honesty. And their numbers are growing. [Read article]

Latest Issue: March 3, 2005


When Saul Williams puts beats to his poetry, the man becomes more than just an emcee or a modern troubadour.

He becomes what we all fantasize being: a rock star.

Having released his self-titled album in September, Williams returns to Tucson next Wednesday to give us all a taste of his latest poetic musings when he performs at City Limits.

Most reputably known as one of the most talented spoken word poets the world has ever seen, Williams is an actor, a rapper, a singer and a preacher. And he's actually good at them all, but doesn't take kindly to his music being categorized. [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]
