  • UA Hoops: Experience trumped youth in NY

    It is a common thought that New York represents a certain culture of grittiness and toughness. The Arizona Wildcats had to capture some of that toughness to overcome a partisan crowd at Madison Square Garden in the backyard of their opponent, the St. John’s University Red Storm, whom they defeated 81-72. Out of the gates […]

  • Parrom returns, gives Wildcats boost over Ball State

    In a lot of ways, Sunday night’s home affair with Ball State University felt like a throw-away game for the Wildcats.

    About three-quarters through the first half former Arizona Wildcat star guard made a simple and probably overlooked statement about freshman guard Josiah Turner, “by the time the PAC-12 starts he is going to be a different player.” That statement is what will be the difference in Arizona making another NCAA Tournament run or falling short […]

  • Arizona a top 10 program once again?

    Where did all the talk of University of Arizona’s demise go all of the sudden? Is this the same team that was embroiled in drama fitting a CBS daytime TV show instead of a made-for-TV drama played only in March?

  • Unexpected sympathy for Stoops

    Something completely unexpected happened to me on Thursday night while I was watching the Arizona Wildcats completely embarrass a bad UCLA football team by 36 points.

  • ESPN insider: Arizona job a ‘hidden jewel’

    Few will doubt the assertion that whoever the next football coach is at the University of Arizona will inherit a better situation than his predecessor did.

  • Greg Byrne narrows Arizona coaching list down to…100?

    If Arizona AD Greg Byrne has been clear about one thing with regards to his search for the team’s next football coach, it’s that he won’t divulge any information before he has to.
