Arizona guard Gabe York's defense has come a long way

LOS ANGELES -- Arizona guard Gabe York is just as baby faced as when he led Orange Lutheran to the 2011 Division III State Championship. Yet his head coach, Sean Miller, swears that he is now a man, or at least his aptitude for defense is comparable to a man's. A far cry from where he was during his time as a Lancer.

SAN DIEGO -- There are catch phrases that become part of the culture this time of the year in college basketball. Arizona freshman Aaron Gordon doesn't like the one being used now of "survive and advance" for the NCAA tournament. He's in favor of a rewrite. "It's dominate and advance," said Gordon.

TUCSON, Ariz. -- The Arizona players got the message early this season that Sean Miller wasn't going to be the same Sean Miller he was the year before.
