Wildcats try to solve Oregon State's zone in rematch

TUCSON, Ariz. -- Arizona Wildcats coach Sean Miller is well aware it will be a test of wills and patience when Oregon State visits McKale Center on Friday night.

Teams play screens different...

No. 6 Wildcats too much to handle in rout of Oregon

TUCSON, Ariz. -- What a difference two months makes. Sixth-ranked Arizona is proof positive of that. Two months ago -- even in victory -- Arizona looked disjointed and unorthodox. Now, in late January it looks like a well-oiled machine. Passes are crisp, defense is demanding and offensive is, well, sharp. Wednesday it was all on display in Arizona's 90-56 romp over Oregon in what...

The Fighting Illini made history with an incredible comeback win over the Arizona Wildcats in the 2005 NCAA Elite Eight, which is known as one of the greatest comebacks of all time.

AP women's basketball poll gets ASU, Arizona confused

The Arizona Wildcats women's basketball team didn't receive any votes in the Associated Press Poll on Jan. 5.

Between those two polls, the Wildcats lost three games by an average of 25 points. It's easy to see what's happening here. Somebody or somebodies got Arizona...

Video: Arizona’s Center Barfed On The Ball, Then Snapped It

Arizona fans were probably sick with the way the Wildcats performed against Oregon in last night’s Pac-12 championship game. Arizona’s center was literally sick.

Oregon will most likely be playing in the inaugural...

Scooby Wright is hellbent on proving every one of his doubters wrong

His Twitter handle is dang near perfect. TwoStarScoob. It plays off his recruiting label, off the snub from something so many players get caught up in. The recruiting star-system often becomes part of a player’s identity. It's certainly become part of linebacker Scooby Wright's persona. When he first signed up for Twitter, the Arizona star said he thought 'TwoStarScoob' would be...

I try to double check anytime I write or talk about either to make sure I haven’t slipped. And if I were to ever mail...
