Arizona Wildcats fans can argue they knew Derrick Williams would do this all along, but how many truly believed what this team as a whole was capable of? The excitement and pressure doesn’t stop here, though. The sophomore forward must […]
  • McCain is right, Goldwater Institute should back off

    Root for a Maverick this weekend in Arizona. No, not one from Dallas that will be at the US Airways Center on Sunday, but rather one that is our state senator and do it regardless of politics.

  • Saunders belongs in Diamondbacks rotation

    PHOENIX – The Arizona Diamondbacks are still trying to fill out their starting rotation, but they should only be looking for one more pitcher.

Surprisingly, manager Kirk […]

  • Pride, wardrobe on the line for Hill and Frye

    It’s no secret that the Phoenix Suns have a rift in their locker room. No, they aren’t fighting over the team’s performance or something that one of them said.

  • Who to root for in Arizona vs. Duke?

    PHOENIX – This is not turning out to be a good day at work. It started out like any other day working for Arizona Sports with the usual pleasantries and hello’s upon arrival. However, it took a turn for the worse when I ran into my boss, “The Taskmaster” as we like to affectionately call […]
  • Burns: Dealing in hypotheticals

    I love hypothetical conversations. Who would win in a battle between Batman and Superman? Who is the bigger bad ass, Chuck Norris or Jack Bauer? What Hollywood hottie could walk through those doors right now that your wife would give you the “hall pass” for? Silly bar room conversations that have absolutely zero foundation in […]

  • Frye’s extraordinary development on display

    With eight seconds left in overtime, the Phoenix Suns are losing to the Los Angeles Lakers 118-121. Who takes the shot? Before the second half of this season, the answer likely would not have been Channing Frye. Heck, before February 27, not many fans would have believed Alvin Gentry if the coach had looked them […]
