Outside The Lines published an investigation into the case of Arizona assistant track and field coach Craig Carter, who stalked, blackmailed, sexually harassed and abused, and physically threatened Arizona women’s track & field athlete Baillie Gibson, who competed for the Wildcats for five years. It is among the most…
Last we heard from Shareef O’Neal, he was dunking over his father, Kazaam star Shaquille O’Neal. Shareef is a five-star power forward listed at 6-foot-8 and he’ll almost certainly grow some more, as he’s just a high school junior.
“We could not guard them,” said Arizona head coach Sean Miller after his second-seeded Wildcats were upset by No. 11 Xavier last night. One imagines that he was talking specifically about Xavier junior guard Trevon Bluiett.
Officials whistled Saint Mary’s Jordan Hunter for committing the foul of “being shoved in the back by an opponent.” It sealed a victory for Arizona, which moves on to face Xavier next week. The refs are really on a roll of excellence, folks.
This is the first of three posts that will preview the NCAA tournament. This one is for people who just want to know which teams have the best shot at winning it all.
Going into Saturday’s NCAA action, it looked like Gonzaga was a lock to earn the No. 1 seed in the West. Many, myself included, were prepared for the Bulldogs to finish the regular season undefeated and attempt a historic run through the tourney. Then the Bulldogs went and ate shit against BYU the same night UCLA…
Just having the first name My-King already made three star My-King Johnson an intriguing football recruit; the fact that he’s going to be major conference college football’s first openly gay recruit made history.
Arizona downed then-No. 3 UCLA 96-85 Saturday evening, handing the Bruins their second loss of the season and further cementing the Wildcats’ place among college basketball’s fluid and fun-as-hell top-10. Sean Miller’s squad has spent all season building its case as a legitimate Final Four team (as have 10 or so other…
Why is Allonzo Trier not playing basketball? This question has been asked repeatedly by media members and basketball fans alike for the past three months, and all that time both Arizona and the NCAA remained silent. Late Wednesday night, an answer finally came.
As Arizona State guard Torian Graham was walking off the court after his pregame warmups before last night’s game against Arizona, he told some Wildcats fans what he really thought of them with a double-bird salute.
Brandon Dawkins must have gotten hurt on the play; it took him an awful long time to get up.
Arizona’s Kadeem Allen went coast-to-coast to score the winning basket that knocked off 12th-ranked Michigan State and give Arizona a win in the season-opener. Spartans, what are you doing?
In the world of scoop-driven transaction reporting, it’s OK for a reporter to be wrong. It is not ideal, of course; it’s bad for credibility. But it’s inevitable. Sometimes you’re going to get bad information, or get used by a source with an agenda, and you’re hosed. The best thing to do in that situation is to eat…
I am a sweaty person. Not just a little, not merely a light sheen of perspiration on hot days or after after exercise, but sweaty. Rivulets become torrents become a full-body drenching at the first sniff of 90 degrees or after the mildest of exertions. I am a disgusting human being, more liquid than man, my sweat…
No. 9 Arizona fell 75-72 to Colorado last night, the buzzer coming just after Allonzo Trier’s potential tying three clanged harmlessly away, and then, for the 10th time in the Wildcats’ last 11 road losses, the home fans charged the court.
UCLA junior guard Bryce Alford hit a tough three-pointer with 1.8 seconds left to help UCLA beat #7 Arizona 87-84, pleasing a fan sitting courtside with ripped jeans.
The New Mexico Bowl, one of the more mediocre matchups out of approximately one million mediocre bowl matchups this year, is on and popping. Arizona has New Mexico and the winner presumably gets expanded water rights on a tributary of the Colorado River or something. Anyway, New Mexico tried to go for it on a fake…
Good morning! Welcome to another college football Saturday. Here’s what the Arizona scamps came up with for today’s College GameDay signs. Some of them are funny! Some of them are horrible. (Some are actually from the superior SEC Nation program!)
The Arizona Wildcats completed a true team play in Pac-12 action at UCLA last night when shortstop Kevin Newman failed to pull down a pop fly, instead allowing it to bounce off his head and—amazingly—into left fielder Jared Oliva’s glove.
