Wildcats' newest No. 1 fan: Shelton switches allegiance


Former UNC provost now backs UA

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. - When Robert Shelton was informed he was the new UA president, one of his first reactions was, "How can I get two basketball tickets?"

Shelton, the former executive vice chancellor and provost at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, was behind the Arizona bench when the Wildcats (13-7, 6-3 Pacific 10 Conference) lost 86-69 to the Tar Heels (12-5) on Saturday.

Blame our caveman instincts, but our fascination with this force of nature - both destructive and life-sustaining - starts with childhood, where experiments with a Zippo lighter and your mother's industrial-sized can of hairspray gives you hours of fun and, if you're lucky, a brand-new set of eyebrows.
