Sean Miller: “We are not that talented”

Thu, 11/30/2017 - 05:27
Where there’s smoke, there’s fire. Weeks prior to the Bahamas fiasco, head coach Sean Miller said his team’s defense and effort needed to improve. Despite Arizona blowing out Long Beach State 91-56 in its return to the comforts of the McKale Center, those same issues resurfaced and Sean Miller made it clear that this was hardly a step in the right direction for his team.

Wildcats hot, Sun Devils not

Wed, 11/29/2017 - 04:14
 On Friday, Dec. 2, and Saturday, Dec. 3, the Arizona hockey team will play its first game since November 18 against Missouri State. But it won’t be just any game, it’s a big-time rivalry with ASU coming to town.  Rachel Huston

Position breakdown

Wed, 11/29/2017 - 01:41
 This is sophomore Lucia Alonso’s main position in the starting lineup, and should remain that way through the entire season. She is stable and a serviceable shooter when left open. Freshman Marlee Kyles will see significant minutes, but has been tasked to aid in pressure situations or score when put in that position in the early going. Freshman Sam Thomas, though not necessarily a point guard, has brought the ball up court from time to time as well.  Saul Bookman

Destination: Arizona

Wed, 11/29/2017 - 01:28
In just her second season as the Arizona women’s basketball head coach, Adia Barnes has positioned the University of Arizona to be among the future staples of college basketball recruiting, possibly joining the likes of Connecticut and Tennessee  Alec White

'Cats give back to the community

Wed, 11/29/2017 - 01:26
 Arizona women's basketball head coach Adia Barnes accomplished many things in her first year at Arizona on and off the court. Besides earning the most conference wins in the Pac-12 and finishing with the most wins since the 2011-12 season, the Wildcats served the greater community off court throughout the season.    Syrena Tracy

Big aspirations for 2018 and beyond

Wed, 11/29/2017 - 01:23
 The Arizona women’s basketball team has never won a conference championship. They haven’t even sniffed the NCAA Tournament in quite some time. That could all be changing rapidly, and soon, because of the efforts of the Arizona coaching staff.  Saul Bookman

More than just X's and O's

Wed, 11/29/2017 - 01:21
 Arizona women’s basketball head coach Adia Barnes has a plan in place to make Tucson a destination for young women across the country. However, that plan can’t take shape unless she has the support system to carry through the vision, and that begins with assistant coaches. Barnes made, on paper, one of her more significant hires by bringing in Morgan Valley, a three-time National Champion, on staff.  Saul Bookman

 Standing at 6-feet, you would expect senior forward Kat Wright to be a post player, making finesse moves in the paint or driving physically to the rim. But make no mistake: Wright is a shooter. In her college career she has made 151 total 3-pointers, almost breaking an NCAA record when she made eleven 3-pointers in one game.  Ian Tisdale

Bennett battles toward final season

Wed, 11/29/2017 - 01:09
 JaLea Bennett is the lone senior remaining from the dark ages of Arizona women’s basketball. Bennett is the last of the 2014-15 recruiting class, and only one of two players remaining from one of the least-successful coaching tenures in school history, under former head coach Niya Butts. Talk about attrition. That kind of hindrance can make things difficult, including development.  Saul Bookman

Controversy aplenty, ASU takes the cup back to Tempe from Wildcats

Sun, 11/26/2017 - 02:46
With the ball on their own 45 yard-line and a 10-point lead, Arizona football head coach Rich Rodriguez played it conservative and it led to the Arizona Wildcats demise in a 42-30 loss to rival ASU on Saturday at Sun Devil Stadium. Saul Bookman

The Arizona men’s basketball team traveled to Paradise Islands, Bahamas for the Battle 4 Atlantis Tournament, it might’ve well been lost in the Bermuda Triangle. Saul Bookman
